Came here for lunch one day during the week and sat out on the patio. Ordered the shakshouka with a side of bacon. It was pretty good! The Rosedale Diner is just a short walk from Summerhill or Rosedale TTC stations.

Somewhat off the beaten path, but offers an interesting take on brunch. Many of the options incorporate some kind of Mediterranean fusion with a traditional Canadian breakfast. The patio is pretty amazing as well, feeling as though ti is in someone's backyard.

This is a local neighbourhood diner that has been around for ages - interesting choices on the menu which is definitely not the typical diner fare.

Nice restaurant, we stop in for lunch very tasty and reasonable for lunch time. This was my daughter suggestion since she has eaten here several times. So my thoughts were let's try and I wasn't disappointed.

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
from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of
