Nice little patio out back with a good laid back atmosphere. Just sit back with your scotch and enjoy. When we went it wasn't busy so there wasn't too much noise or crowding. Service was quick and good as well. We only ordered scotch.

Thus place has a fantastic atmosphere, very antiquated feel. There are rooms and lounges upstairs for more privacy, and my God, the pour over coffee is a must! Top of the town!

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
most stylish high-rise residences and heritage
buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden
arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel
