This cafe was opposite our hotel and we wanted to try it for breakfast as it was really cold and we didn't fancy walkingmiles. The owners were very friendly although the breakfast was a little dissapointing. It was all microwaved but warm and edible and filled a void in our stomachs.

Williams Fresh Cafe was a recommendation and it was a great one! I had the classic breakfast with a green tea. The breakfast menu has lots of healthy and delicious food. Other than the good food, the restaurant is attached to Pawsway. There were lots of puppies because there was a puppy kindergarten class. So cute! Pet parents can have... More

We stayed next door at the Radisson Admiral hotel and thought this would be a good place for breakfast. The staff were friendly and the food came quickly. It was quiet for a Sunday which we enjoyed. You can look out to the marina or enjoy the antics of the cats in the Purina enclosure. Comfortable setting. Only thing I... More

I cannot comment on anything else, but the smoothies are great. This facility is part of the Pawsway facility, so you can have your dog alongside. We have picked up smoothies and taken them away. They are like meal replacements and very refreshing.

I asked if the coffee was fresh and the server told me she couldn't remember. Asked for a tea which she literally filled to the brim. When I asked her to pour some out so I could safely carry it she refused. Brutal.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
