A decent coffee shop, though it seems a bit more focused on the catering side of its business than on the coffee shop side. Unfortunately though, in Toronto where coffee rules, this place is not in the upper echelon, and so unless in the neighbourhood,...More

We had lunch here last week and were impressed by the food and service. The menu is limited, but this is a good thing. What they do, they do well. We arrived at 11:45 and had no problem finding a table, but the place does...More

My family and I recently ate here on vacation. We walked here from the Royal Ontario Museum (about a 20 minute walk). The food was great- we tried the Ultimate (egg, cheese, peameal bacon, tomato on a cheddar-chive scone), the grilled-cheese of the day (chorizo...More

Had lunch here with my partner. Carrot soup was great, as was my salad. Micro greens, lightly dressed very healthy. Service was good and prompt. My mac and cheese was good but a bit heavy. Will definitely return.

I LOVE this place! I stayed in Toronto with my boyfriend and we discovered Fabarnak towards the end of our stay. The breakfast and brunch are both amazing. Portions are huge, really tasty and the price was just so reasonable. Staff are also friendly and...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
