We stopped in here to sample a few beers and try an appetizer. Great vibe, good people watching. The beer selection was pretty good, but it was the servers who made it fantastic. Everyone was friendly and attentive to every table's needs.

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

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
