The menu isn't terrific. It's less deli than a boring melange of a mishmash of food. If you want delis, go to Montreal or Boston or New York—or even Eltana in Seattle.

Went for the knish but they were out. Stayed for the smoked meat sandwich, poutine and maple bacon donut. The meat and the poutine were flavourful and delicious. The donuts were okay, I really wanted to like them more. Will come back to get the...More

Popped into Caplansky's when visiting Kensington Market. Had their famous smoked meat hash of griddle fried clean smoked meat with potato and onion, topped off with 2 sunny eggs and rye bread. Plenty of top up coffee as well.

We have had the Corned Beef & Pickled Tongue sandwiches and found them both delicious. A bit greasy but delicious. We got them to go on College Street, and even the crowded restaurant made for a fabulous atmosphere. I would recommend them.

I stopped by here for a meal after a long flight and only after having been sustaining myself on coffee for nearly 20 hours. I sat in here and ordered the fried chicken. It was good in terms of juiciness, but felt it was lacking...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
