I used to love this place for breakfast and frequent it. Last 3 visits have been unacceptable...overdone or uncooked eggs, cold potatoes, multiple requests for service. Trouble in the kitchen, trouble with the waitstaff. Hope they get it together again, but I will stay away...More

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
