This may be one of the only diners in Toronto to get the over medium egg right. I had the steak and eggs. The homefries here are crispy and delicious. Diner coffee is not great, but that's almost a given for the character of the place. The steak is very thin and so medium rare is nearly impossible, but it... More

So food was good - comfort food. Very reasonably priced. Service was good. I like a glass of wine with my meal - they had NO red wine so I had a glass of white wine - so clearly not a place for liquor. Food was tasty and was worth the price.

Went for dinner and ordered the turkey dinner WITHOUT gravy. The waiter gave me the impression he couldn't have cared less if he served me or not which was odd considering there were only 3 other tables with customers. When my dinner came - it had gravy. Thankfully not a great deal, most was soaked up by the bread, and... More

Have been wanting to try this deli for years since moving back to the city and by chance was in the area for a training seminar and decided to check it out. Excellent corned beef on rye combo(with fries and coleslaw and a big slice of a kosher dill). With two cups of coffee for the low low price of... More

Have seen this place for years, but never went in. Glad I did. Food was great, plated simply with no frills, but that's OK. Service was friendly and lightning fast. You could tell that whoever runs the place runs a tight ship as everyone worked together, there didn't seem to be any slackers. I could also tell there were many... More

Loved New York in the 90s? This place has the same feeling as those great trips to NYC. The back wall has a beautiful mural of the old Twin Towers, kind of bittersweet to see. The sandwiches and service are great, and I've introduced it to my kid who's got a lot of love for their French fries.

The New Yorker Deli has been very good to me over the years, serving me great meals at a fair price. They make an excellent corned beef and their corned beef hash n' eggs is the best way to start your morning... unless you're feeling luxurious, then their corned beef eggs benny is best way to start your day. Regardless,... More

My 3 "star" rating is for the quality of the deli-meats...........being an authentic Jewish deli I have to say that none of the deli meats compare with similar delis in Montreal or even Katz deli here in Toronto. That said , this little place is not only a neighborhood gem but a reliable breakfast spot when nothing else around is... More

A small restaurant located city centre with limited seating and no convenient parking. Our Corned beef and Pastrami sandwiches were both ordered "medium cut" but both came lean. And the meat while warm could have been hotter temp wise. The pastrami could use more spices. The Potatoe Latkes were excellent as was the Beef Knish. The server was prompt and... More

While visiting Downtown Toronto, 2 of us called to the New Yorker Deli on Bay Street for something light for breakfast. Service was prompt and with a smile. Had the bacon and fried egg toasted sandwich with the 'bottomless' coffee, just what the doctor ordered. Appeared to be a popular location for the business community, well worth a visit.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
