Service was ok, but not as prompt or attentive as one might expect when the place was maybe 20-25% full. Beer selection will probably please a lot of beer samplers and hipsters. My only complaint is that it should not come at the expense of...More

Most impressed with the beer selection. Home brews are pretty good. Food is delicious. Comfort food that actually isn't as greasy/heavy as you'd expect while filling your need for grease. Our server was very nice, though the girl at the door didn't look too enthusiastic...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
