We have had the Corned Beef & Pickled Tongue sandwiches and found them both delicious. A bit greasy but delicious. We got them to go on College Street, and even the crowded restaurant made for a fabulous atmosphere. I would recommend them.

I stopped by here for a meal after a long flight and only after having been sustaining myself on coffee for nearly 20 hours. I sat in here and ordered the fried chicken. It was good in terms of juiciness, but felt it was lacking...More

Landed at the Toronto Airport T3 and we got to our connecting flight with time to stop at Caplansky's Deli. Service was fast but waitress had forgotten to put on a smile which lasted the entire time! Other than this negative portion, the menu was...More

Poor, breakfast latkes were greasy, rye toast was tiny and bacon was mediocre. Would not recommend at all even at the airport.

What's to say? The food was good, but it doesn't hold a candle to the best Jewish delis in the States. Sorry, guys, Caplansky's couldn't survive a year in New York or Miami. There was a little bit of "deceptive advertising." The sandwiches were stacked...More

It's wonderful to visit this place and get a good smoked meat sandwich. While it isn't Schwartz's (I'm and ex-Montrealer), this place helps me get a good fix. Bread is great and the meat is tasty. I like the medium to fatty smoked meat and...More

Positives: Service was quite good. Quick and friendly. The taste of the food (latke poutine and smoked meat sandwich) was excellent. The mustards. While their "hot" mustard was just ok, the ballpark and deli style mustards were fantastic. Negatives: Portion size / pricing needs to...More

When we hired a taxi and got all the way out to this place we found it was closed, even though websites said it was open. That was very disappointing as we looked forward to some nice deli. Maybe next time!

Caplansky's is everything you hope for in a Jewish deli. Great food and great ambiance. The smoked meat sandwich and latkes were superb as was the lox and cream cheese bagel. Save room for the maple with beef bacon donuts! This place is guaranteed to...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
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
