I tried their cheese sandwich, their burger and their french toast and everything was incredibly good!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's cheaper at lunch but it's expensive for dinner and brunch. I was lucky with my french toast but my family's plates were not amazing at all.

Lawrence is a small, casual and friendly restaurant located in a hip neighborhood worth seeing if you're from out of town. The wine list focuses on Italian wines but has selections from other places and all the wines listed are exceptional. One of the owners...More

In 2010, Marc, Ethan, Sefi and Annika opened Lawrence across the road from Sparrow, the bar where their working relationship had begun a year and a half earlier. The goal was to offer creative, thoughtful and honest cooking alongside a properly curated beer and wine list, in an elegant but informal setting – and to support responsible local agriculture in the process. In 2014 they opened Boucherie Lawrence, a butcher shop a few doors north that works exclusively with whole animals from small farms, and offers the neighbourhood easy access to the restaurant’s careful sourcing. The new location also allowed for an extensive charcuterie program and an expanded pastry and baking operation. The next piece of the puzzle opened in 2016: larrys is a small and bustling all day-all evening-cafe-restaurant-wine bar-breakfast-joint-next-door, showcasing many of Lawrence’s endeavours in a more casual and pared down manner.
