It was an ominous start when we noticed the line at the bottom of the menu "Good food takes time". Well, we were willing to wait for good food but doesn't mean that we should have to wait for decent service. It took 20 minutes before our order was taken, another 10 minutes before we got coffee and tea and... More

Saving Grace serves up belly loving food in a lovely ambiance. But you have to get there early and line up for about an hour, which is kind of annoying in the winter. When we were in line, people were running across the street to get a coffee. Saving Grace should have somebody out there serving coffee in take-out containers.

I really liked this place. It was adorable in decor and the food was delicious. I ordered the French toast and my mom ordered the carrot cake waffles. Large portions so you will walk out of there full - and happy! The only downside was the hostess, who looked like she'd rather be anywhere else but there, and who didn't... More

This quaint restaurant was referred to me by my daughter and it was well worth the referral. The restaurant is small and they do not take reservations. They were able to accommodate our group of seven on the upper level of the restaurant. The staff was pleasant and the food was very tasty. I was told that the french toast... More

If you don't arrive before the small cafe opens, you'll have a long wait. We arrived about 10 minutes after Saving Grace opened and waited over an hour to get in. And it was worth it. The food was exquisite. You can tell by the flavors that everything is fresh and prepared with care. Slow down and enjoy every bite.

This is my favourite place to get brunch in Toronto . You have to show up early enough to avoid a wait ( on weekends ) but it's definitely worth it . The specials are always delicious and there are so many good choices on the menu . I am fairly picky and I have never been disappointed here !

Great neighbourhood Brunch spot ! It opened at 10 AM Sunday morning. We arrived at 9:45 and joined the line already in place. Promptly at 10 AM we were among the first diners to fill the small 2 level restaurant. ( I'm estimating it seats about 30 people). A continual stream of people continued to add their names to the...

Food was great, service was great! Hostess was awesome! The only issue was the wait times. I Wouldn't advise going on a Saturday during the lunchtime.

I met with a friend of mine who is now living in toronto for some time and she recommended this place. Like most, I checked out the menu online and was really not that sure if I was going to enjoy it or not, but figured she likely knows what she's talking about so I'll give it a shot. The... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
