When here for a quick dinner before a Panasonic theater experience. It was a small cozy establishment, that reminded me of a mom/pop restaurant. The service was great, they accommodated us and our very late dinner companions, and I heard them try and make everyone...More

A home cooking Italian Restaurant 1 block from Bloor and Yonge. Small, intimate, with excellent service. My favourites include; veal sandwich, caesar salad, home-made soup and cappuccino.

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

flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
