If you ever feel like a quirky night out at a GAY-FRIENDLY establishment - look no further than The Beaver. In the span of one Sunday evening of karaoke, local beer and conversation, I got invited to an art opening, sang some 80s tunes, and...More

During a recent trip to Toronto I was taken here by a friend for breakfast. My breakfast was gorgeous and she service was super friendly. I even had fresh grapefruit juice which was perfect in the sunshine. Lovely place and worth a visit :)

Interesting menu selections. Tends towards comfort foods. The day I was there, I had a lovely lamb stew. Found the service to be disinterested/distracted. The guy seemed more interested in chatting with a guy near his counter than looking at us directly. Any questions we...More

West End
