I've been going to this restaurant for over a decade. I've introduced this place to family and friends, all of which have made this place one of their own. People from out of town also seem to quite enjoy it because of its uniqueness. It...More

It is possible to fall prey to some seriously bad meals on Yonge Street. Don't let that happen. 7 West Cafe is a local favourite open 24 hours a day/365 days a year. 7 West features excellent pastas and hearty sandwiches. Kids love the chips.

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
