My wife and I go almost once a week and the food has always been good and fresh. I'd recommend the mushroom Moo Moo Gy Pan. Or the the Baby Bok Choy.

There is something that is timeless about this place. The GOOF remains an institution in the Beach. The food is good and very affordable. I have stopped by since my university days and I have always enjoyed the experience.

I know ithe Garden Gate Restaurant as the Goof. It had something to do with some of the letters in the sign being burnt out which spelled Goof. We have many happy memories of growing up eating breakfasts, lunches and countless take aways. There is...More

East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that
team up to make this district one of the most
multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT
community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or
night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its
thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more
relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection
of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets,
