Has dinner here as a couple. Funky atmosphere/ casual interior. The food was very good ( warm goats cheese salad and Pacific grey cod. Oysters at the next table looked great! Service very friendly. Wine: Totally overpriced.

Good food but pricey. Loud and busy but well prepared food. Quick service. Fresh ingredients. If you want to go, call ahead. .

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

flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
