The Patrician Grill is true old school from the ancient neon sign that hangs out front, the booths with Formica tops and a menu offering standard diner fare (think of burgers, club sandwiches, meat loaf and so on). The main waiter seeing over most tables...More

Friendly, clean and simple. Compared to shiny new buildings this place looks a little shabby. Don't be fooled as it's simple genuine home cooked food is great. It's not Michelin starred, nothing is 'reduced' or 'drizzled' but it's fab.

The boss is not overplaying the "is everything ok for you?", running after customers and tips. He just makes it happen, being here and there, all into his business. I liked the real and the truthfulness of the place. It is not the to die...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

flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
