They are still open at YYZ and on Cumberland street. Went to the Cumberland place, food not as good and not the deli atmosphere. Time to find a new place.

Caplansky’s Deli has shut down the College Street restaurant. The Yorkville and Pearson Airport locations are still operating. Another Toronto institution closes. So sad.

I had the tongue sandwich. Incredibly expensive and nothing special. Way overhyped. Centre St deli is substantially better.

I visited caplansky's on the recommendation of my girlfriend. The staff were really friendly and helpful, especially when I mentioned I'm a diabetic. I had the BBQ beef brisket in a bun and it was simply beautiful. Prices were very reasonable for the quality of...More

I've been to Dunn's and Schwartz's in Montreal, and they don't compare to Caplansky's Deli in Toronto. Best smoked meat sandwiches I have ever had, and the house mustard is fantastic too!

ate here while staying at a nearby hotel. I had the matzah ball soup which was not good at all. I had the cooked salami sandhwich which was just ok. The bread was fresh though. Menu is pretty limited.

I love this place! It’s a great spot for friends or for a casual date night. The beer is great (thought the pickles always surprise me) and the food is remarkable. I highly recommend!

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
