From the aromas wafting out of open kitchen, to the quality of the food and service, this place is great. You will not regret your visit. Make sure to try the French 75.

Tonight, I had one of the tastiest meals ever at this lovely French restaurant in Toronto’s Queen Street West neighbourhood. Built for carnivores but with something for everyone, I thoroughly enjoyed escargots in butter with hazelnuts, steak frites, and blood orange sorbet. In addition to...More

one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's

funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to
stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and
vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca
for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers,
