Wonderful ambience, great food in a beautifully restored Victorian house. Exceptional service, especially at short notice ( no reservation) and very personable staff. Menues were intriguing- will definitely go again to enjoy more culinary delights on their outdoor patio!

If you are new to Toronto or in the area, you need to try this place. The three brothers that own this place are amazing. The food is excellent at the right price point. A great value! The staff (Lyanne and Daniel) are uber professional!

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
