Ordered a beer and it tasted like sewer water told the waitress and she got mad at us and started bad mouthing us to her fellow coworkers. Bottom line I know what beer is supposed to taste like and who treats customers like that.

What a lovely wee diner and the food is top notch. Server was friendly and efficient. We were there for breakfast, the Benedict Florentine and the Western Omelette were both very good. Excellent homefries. Good strong coffee, bottomless cup!

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
