I don't think they have - we were there a few weeks ago and it was hot - no outdoor eating area was offered to us - I am pretty certain they don't. We both had a lovely meal - sit at the window and enjoy.

No, I am sorry we do not currently have a senior discount. However we do offer great deals through the “GetintheLoop” App.

It's one block away. The Thompson Hotel is on the 600 block of Victoria Street and the restaurant is on the 500 block. Turn right when you leave the front door of the Hotel.
