The food here is very tasty. Not a huge menu but okay since all the food there is very good. Portions are bit small, but still definitely worth trying out. Nice place to visit and a good location.

Serves locally sourced foods which are prepared to an excellent level, and also notable as they prepare fresh breads everyday. Not the most obvious place on College Street, but worth a visit for its high quality. The servings are not huge, but the quality of...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
