We've been eating at the old location for the last 15 years and always had a fantastic experience. We recently went to the new College St. restaurant for our anniversary and were so disappointed. Had the Summerlicious menu as it had all of our favourites...More

This restaurant is not in the downtown 'tourist' area but if you like cajun/creole cuisine, it's worth going a bit off 'the beaten path.'

We've been eating at Southern Accent for over twenty five years. The original site in Mirvish Village recently had to close to make way for condominiums and moved to the new College Street location. I have to be honest, we were worried that the new...More

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

Hi Sandie, we didn't have a psychic reading, but suggest you call to make the arrangements - I'd be surprised if this was no longer on offer as the whole place is themed that way. Depending on your party size, you should... More

Southern Accent has been serving the most authentic and exciting Cajun and Creole food in Toronto for 34 years. Recently relocated to the exciting College and Ossington neighbourhood, join us at the bar for a Cajun Cocktail or a bourbon from our collection accompanied by the best Calamari in the city. The restaurant is a tribute to the old victorian house in the Mirvish Village location, laced with all the old quirky artwork and charms. In a hurry? No need to worry. Grab 'n' go and high end take out are available from the express area at the entrance to the restaurant!
