Service was good, atmosphere is that of a well worn and established, but well maintained and run diner. 24 hours is a bonus in an area where not much is open real early before a run to the airport. Weekend sees a buffet, but ordering...More

From breakfast to dinner all day and night long you won't be hungry. I went here every day for the 10 days I was in Toronto. I had the breakfast. I don't eat meat, so ate eggs and toast. For $5.97 which included the tax...More

Feel like living dangerously? Eat here. Don't let it's grungy appearance fool you, it's not even affordable. The waitress was the sweetest little old lady but needs to retire. My coffee mug was served with lipstick on it. There was dried egg yolk on my...More

The exterior of the Golden Griddle on 45 Carlton is not very pleasing to the eyes but I decided to give it a chance. I was greeted by a host who looked like he was in deep depression. The waitress was very kind no complaints...More

It's cheap, but we call it the "awful waffle". The buffet is...dismal. New product is simply poured in over the old, so don't dig too deep in the scramble egg tray. For cheap post drinking eats, go for it, but it's not a place we...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
