Reviewed 14 February 2015

This is a great spot for drinks and light fare, in a nicely renovated old building on the corner of Gerrard and Greenwood, just north of Greenwood Park.
FOOD
Mostly sandwiches, salads, and brunch fare, but also rotisserie chicken. Soup during the week and waffles at weekends. All seem to be made with high quality ingredients. The bacon and egg sandwich was delicious and under $6, the po boy with pulled pork and roasted peppers was great, and the grain salad was different and nice.
DRINK
We just had coffee - hot, strong, and free refills, They have a license and sell craft Ontario beer.
AMBIENCE
The building has been a pharmacy, a grocers and a gift shop. It has been renovated, keeping the hardwood floor, exposed brick, and a few sample tin ceiling tiles. The design is very tasteful and even the "water closets" have been tastefully designed.
SERVICE
Very pleasant, not rushed, friendly. Spent a while talking with the owner who was proud to show off details like the October 1934 photograph of the exterior which has been restored, colourized and hung on the wall.
RECOMMENDED FOR:
* Anyone in the area who needs a bite and a drink.
* People who like brunch but are prepared to travel a little to find somewhere less busy and trendy, but still very good.
* Tourists who want to see a real area of Toronto.
* Anyone with kids who needs somewhere to go after they have been running around, playing or skating in Greenwood Park. (They do French fries and grilled cheese to keep kids happy!).
