Don't be fooled that it just a gas station, this place serves up amazing food, especially the sandwiches of various BBQ meats. I got the chicken sandwich which was very moist and flavours very well. Great place!

I've visited this place during your trip to Toronto. It's in an old gas station and still has that feel. The barbecue sandwiches however are nowhere near what you would find in a normal gas station. The neighborhood is a little seedy, but this is...More

East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that
team up to make this district one of the most

community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or
night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its

of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets,
