A small restaurant located city centre with limited seating and no convenient parking. Our Corned beef and Pastrami sandwiches were both ordered "medium cut" but both came lean. And the meat while warm could have been hotter temp wise. The pastrami could use more spices. The Potatoe Latkes were excellent as was the Beef Knish. The server was prompt and... More

While visiting Downtown Toronto, 2 of us called to the New Yorker Deli on Bay Street for something light for breakfast. Service was prompt and with a smile. Had the bacon and fried egg toasted sandwich with the 'bottomless' coffee, just what the doctor ordered. Appeared to be a popular location for the business community, well worth a visit.

I had breakfast here three times and had a sandwich made to take out. Once, the fried eggs over easy were a bit under cooked but not enough to send back. I prefer the whites not to be runny at all. I liked it for breakfast. It's a neighborhood spot and seemed clean and reliable. Prices were fair. Service was... More

This is one of the only places I know of where I can get Beef Knish in the Yonge/Bloor area (or anywhere else nowadays ... a lot of places where I used to be able to get it, don't carry it anymore). Since it's one of my favourite dishes, and I come into the city only occasionally, I always head... More

Over the years I have enjoyed many tasty deli meals -- in Toronto at Switzer’s (on Spadina), Moe Pancer’s (on Bathurst) and Yitz’s (on Eglinton); in Montreal at Schwartz's (on Saint-Laurent Boulevard), Ben’s (on de Maisonneuve, now closed) and Dunn’s (on Metcalfe); in New York at Second Avenue Deli (on 2nd Ave., now closed), Sarge’s (on 3rd Ave.), Carnegie Deli...

When travelling, we enjoy experiencing different cultures and so, when in Toronto we had the idea that a Jewish Deli was in order. The New Yorker was recommended by a Jewish friend so we went on a Sunday morning. It was torture to decide what to try on the menu. We don't usually settle on the same thing, but the... More

Went here for the all day breakfast. Great price for a satisfying meal without breaking the bank. Food was made with love and tasted great. I had scramble egg, toast, mini potatoes (yum) and sausages. I would go back again in a heartbeat.

I got the beef knish as I here them talk about it on Seinfeld. It came with gravy, and was delicious. The pastrami on rye was OK.

Went on a Saturday morning for breakfast. Restaurant was not crowded, so was able to be seated immediately. Ordered eggs+lox and toasted western. Both served with home fries. I found eggs+lox a little watery (I like me scrambled eggs drier — maybe just a personal preference). Toasted western was excellent. Portions were large. Had enough of toasted western to use...

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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 vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
