Don't be fooled by the lineup. It moves quickly. Someone even took our order while in line. Service is fast and efficient. Delicious New England clam chowder. Just right for a quick and delicious lunch!

Tucked away at the south end of the St. Lawrence Market, this place totally rocks. There is usually a line, but it moves fast. There is a huge selection of grilled or battered seafood, salads, amazing clam chowder and lots more. Huge portions at reasonable prices make this a must-find for lunch!

A great informal setting, a small cafe style eatery set in the fish market. A must do, a great selection of fresh fish. We had swordfish, calamari & crab cakes. Good value $ 👍🏻

Stopped by Buster's Sea Cove at St. Lawrence Market over this past weekend. We ordered the lobster roll and the shrimp po'boy, and loved both! The po'boy is the best of its kind that I've had outside of New Orleans. Very tasty! This place is definitely worth stopping by if you're ever in the area!

Definitely worth stopping by. The ambience is good. Their flavorful and creamy clam chowder hits the spot on a cold day! I had a mixed feeling about their famous lobster roll though. The bun was excellent (buttery and crispy), but their lobster meat could have been better. They use a frozen lobster meat which is fine if they had a... More

Do you ever want a rainbow trout sandwich? Get this one. It comes with a side of coleslaw. Good eats.

Don't let those long lines scare you! It's well worth the wait and the wait isn't really that long. They know how to move a line and get the orders out! A seafood lovers delight!

Ordered the Grilled Atlantic Salmon with mixed salad and it was really good. A really good sized piece of salmon, and plenty of salad. Hit the spot, and the salmon was grilled perfectly.

We stopped here for lunch and chose the clam chowder. A large bowl is certainly a meal. While sitting at the counter we watched so many amazing dishes being prepared. The salmon on salad looked phenomenal, as did the octopus. Actually, everything we saw looked amazing!

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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 vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
