I only ate breakfast here, which was fine, but the place itself is absolutely soul less. You would only really eat here if you were staying in the hotel and couldn't be bothered to go outside.

We were staying in the hotel and in the bitter cold, we weren't inclined to go very far so we decided to try the hotel restaurant. Breakfast offerings were your typical American breakfast fare: eggs, bacon, ham, sausages, omelets. Food was good and reasonable portions....More

Calamari was overcooked. Chicken parm was burned. Staff asked if we wanted bread instead of just bringing it. Didn't bring dishes for calamari till it was finished. Was like they were saving on dishes. Water had no ice. Menu was limited. Staff was pleasant

We ate here 3 times during our visit to Toronto. The staff was excellent and so was the food! Their hamburger on a ciabatta bun was to die for. Sooooo taste. I highly recommend Shade Lounge.

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
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
