I visited the Art Square Cafe specifically because I had been searching for Crepe Suzette. Although not made and flambed at your table as in the fine dining tradition, it still made an impression. I just love the fresh orange and butter sauce. Of course, I found out that they are many other crepes available. My friend and I enjoyed... More

Dropped in for the gallery but was delighted to find a place to eat too. The space shared by gallery and cafe is bright and inviting and the menu very creative. Unfortunately the savoury, buckwheat crepe I had was disappointing. Salty and spongy crepe with hardly any filling was not what I expected or wanted and I'm surprised to see... More

We popped in here having just visited the AGO across the road. The venue is awesome - the cafe is situated at the rear of the art gallery - and the food and service was great. A good range of crepes, both sweet and savoury, and the service was really friendly - the man looking after us was happy to... More

Went in here after walking around the AGO. Cosy little place. Our waiter was super friendly and helpful. Food, all crepes were really good, both savoury and sweet. Waiter was happy to recommend interesting spots to visit too. I had the Tuna and Cheese, my daughter's Canadian Breakfast crepe was just what she needed. Thanks. 👍🏼

I saw the sign that they serve illy coffee, so I couldn't pass by this small cafe. I don't know how they could make bad coffee from illy but they should really fix that. The breakfast was really delicious and homemade chocolates were amazing! So it saved my bad experience with the coffee. I would definitely go there again and... More

Ordered banana bread, tea and a beer. Waited more than twenty minutes and then asked for a refund. They didn't seem to care. Food looked good but ridiculously slow.

This crêperie is an excellent place for breakfast before the AGO opens. Their Canadian Breakfast - two eggs and house-made sausage on a cheese-filled crêpe served with maple syrup and hot sauce - provided us the requisite energy for the strenuous day of art appreciation ahead of us.

Right in front of the Art Gallery is this little cafe. We visited by luck and were not disappointed. The crepes are delicious, and the drinks great too. I had a green tea with rose petals that was divine. And browsing through the pictures whilst waiting for the food only add the to the charm. Well worth a visit

This is a very nice spot to eat well and spend some time before or after your AGO visit. As a different spot from eating elsewhere. Prices are reasonable. Good art & photographs and other crafts for sale in the restaurant. Which is a nice combination. The veggie crepe I had was delicious, and one of the best cappuccinos in... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
