Fun, funky series of small rooms stacked over a number of floors connected by a tight flight of stairs with good snacks, cakes, coffees, drinks. Good fun late at night when the night crawlers have come to life. Lots of interesting people watching but when...More

Didn't know what to expect when we saw the small entrance. Inside the décor was very nice. The menu wasn't very elaborate, but everything on the menu was really good. We had good service. The place is small, so there's about 40 places to sit,...More

We wanted to eat somewhere with menu options that would not be too heavy before attending a concert in close proximity to the Marriott Yorkville where we stayed. This restaurant is definitely not accessible but we had a great time here with friends. Multiple levels...More

I've been going to this restaurant for over a decade. I've introduced this place to family and friends, all of which have made this place one of their own. People from out of town also seem to quite enjoy it because of its uniqueness. It...More

Dropped in for dinner after a movie (Jackie) at the nearby cinema. I've walked past this place a couple of times and completely overlooked it --- it's such a narrow entrance. Warm atmosphere, busy but not hectic. Efficient service from knowledgable server. Loved the smoked...More

It is possible to fall prey to some seriously bad meals on Yonge Street. Don't let that happen. 7 West Cafe is a local favourite open 24 hours a day/365 days a year. 7 West features excellent pastas and hearty sandwiches. Kids love the chips.

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
