This place has a long history in Toronto, only opens in the morning and mid afternoon, sometimes there is a line but it is worth waiting. Try the huevos rancheros.

Visited based on recent reviews. Atmosphere great. Having spent a week eating pancakes for breakfast the children have become quite the connoisseurs and they both rated these pancakes the best they had all week. A bit of a walk from our hotel but worth it....More

I used to love this place for breakfast and frequent it. Last 3 visits have been unacceptable...overdone or uncooked eggs, cold potatoes, multiple requests for service. Trouble in the kitchen, trouble with the waitstaff. Hope they get it together again, but I will stay away...More

A typical diner! Refreshing change from the new and shiny around Toronto. Some street parking nearby.

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
