I sat down at Caplansky's deli for a quick meal because it didnt look to bad from the outside. It was rather clean and the waitress was friendly. The burger with '70% fresh ground beef and 30% smoked meat' was terrible.

I love deli but this is not the place for me. If you've been to the great delis in MTL and NY then you know what a GREAT deli is. This place is not in the same league. Nothing else to say.

Good hot! No good after it gets cold. A good takeout place or sit in. Customer service could use a revamp

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

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
