While I hadn't visited Yitz's in a couple of years, it was usually a safe bet for good, classic deli foods. Made a large takeout order and when I got home, we dug in for what turned out to be a very disappointing meal. The corned beef (served hot) was as tasty as always. Unfortunately, the smoked turkey tasted of... More

Yitz's is a great place to go for Jewish food of all kinds, including bagels and blintzes, lox and chicken soup, as well as fresh baked goods for take-out. It's on the edge of Toronto's Jewish community, on Eglington Avenue close to Bathurst Street. It's a classic Jewish Toronto restaurant.

Even though the Metrolinx has wreaked havoc on entering the place, Yitz is definitely a must see and visit. This little deli on the north west corner of Avenue/Eglinton is amazing. The staff are super friendly and the service is great. I love the sandwiches. Usually I take 1/2 the meat home and make another sandwich. They also come with... More

We were walking around the neighbourhood, undecided about what we wanted for dinner. When we saw this place, it looked inviting so we decided to give it a try. What a pleasant discovery! The interior is dated, but quaint and clean. The menu is your typical deli fare. My friend had the turkey dinner special with vegetable noodle soup, mashed... More

Have been disappointed by many other well known delis in the city. Yitz's delivered. Food was large in portion and great in taste. The coleslaw was the best I've ever had and the deli meats were delicious. Only downside was the massive lemon meringue pie. I thought it lacked flavor but it was still good.

From outside, Yitz's seems like mix of a delicacy shop and a bakery, but it turns out, that on top of that, they also make a living as a restaurant. Immediately when you walk in, you feel the schizophrenia unravel. You walk through the bakery, and into a place looking like a diner, without that authentic American feel of a... More

For old style home cooking comfort foods, there is by any measurement that I can think of, no finer deli in Toronto. The multitude of menu choices, the excellent food quality whether eaten in, taken out or catered simply can't be beat. From the gefilte fish to the roast brisket, from the kishka to the roast chicken, and even the... More

Harder to find a great Jewish deli in Toronto but this one is still pretty good. Not someplace where I would eat on weekly basis as my arteries could not take it however for a corned beef craving it's the place to go.

I was disappointed last night when I went to Yitz's for dinner again. Needed a corned beef fix so took myself in for a sandwich. I was so disappointed. They must be using different bread these days as it was dry and tasteless. The corned beef was all crumbly and was certainly not the excellent meat that I had on... More

Prepare to meet thy maker, after gorging on the most delicious jewish deli-style sandwiches and other things mother used to make. Corned beef to die for. I can feel my arteries blocking me as I speak. Not to be missed, the restaurant is a wonderful throwback to the 70's. Enjoy a Cuban cigar for dessert - they're in the refrigerated... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
