My friend and I went here for breakfast on Sunday after seeing Ed Sheeran the night before. We loved the old fashioned feel of a 50's diner. What made it very modern was the eclectic menu. The food was out of this world. It was...More

I ate here for the first time today. Loved sitting at the counter on a stool. Soft drinks in bottles. Great sandwiches and fries are fresh and delicious. Staff is very friendly. An eclectic mix of diners. Has a neighbourhood feel.

Food was ok, average breakfast food. Not worth waiting in line. Faster taking dirty plates off the table than taking the food order and refilling coffee. A good spot if you aren't interested in attentive service.

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
