Brunch at the Church Key is quickly losing it's secret gem status. OK, well only because it is less of a secret now. High notes. Artisan breads, muffins and other baked goods. I had the eggs benny, superb down to the hint of lemon in a homemade hollandaise. Oh and did I mention the coffee, I just did. Awesome touch.... More

We wanted to get a reservation before a show at the Grand Theatre, called but they were full. We ended up going to London early, restaurant didn't look busy so we decided to see if they would squeeze us in. They did, and I'm glad they did. Restaurant has a nice vibe to it, its beside a big old church,... More

I have dined here a few times. Each time the food has been great- the service varies. My first visit was with some friends. We sat in the patio with a great view of Richmond row. Our server came by, told us the specials and recommended a few items. I went with the mussels. They were fantastic, great portion size... More

I went to the Church Key at the end of October before a concert at Bud Gardens. It was a little busy because of the concert and a show at the Grand Theater but we didn't have to wait for a table and the service was still on point. We told the waiter about our time restraints because of the... More

I love this restaurant, I much prefer the dinner menu over the lunch but that is not take away from the lunch menu whatsoever. I would personally conclude it's in the top 5 restaurants l on Richmond St. hands down.

My friend took me here for lunch before going to the theatre. The Spinach and Bacon salad was excellent -- I really liked how the bacon was woven into a blanket to top the salad. The salmon-wrapped scallops were yummy... And the chicken fried bacon? Decadence on a stick!! I totally recommend this bistro-pub. Can hardly wait to go back... More
