This is a family run business that really enjoys operating a restaurant! The atmosphere is lovely and the food is delicious. A place to stop by for a drink after work or for dinner. They’re also very involved in the community and LGBT friendly. Thanks...More

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
