We were here with a large group, I think 16, on a busy Sunday afternoon. Although there was some initial chaos with getting us all seated together, they were very accomadating of some of the special needs in our group, and service was good and super friendly. The food was good, with the only exception being a butternut squash soup... More

This is a charming restaurant that serves excellent good-value food presented in an original way. The service was very good, though we were there earlier on in the evening when it was not very busy. I don't normally eat desserts, at least not gateaux and pastries, but I succumbed to temptation when I saw the inviting array of offerings in... More

We hopped in for a late brunch when visiting Cabbage Town. Service was good when there is no crowd. Food was descent but not extraordinary and in big proportion though. The crowd started filtering in past 11:30am while the few waiter and waitresses went shuttling around in a frenzy trying their best to keep everyone served. Prices here are reasonable.

We've just had our second visit to The Pear Tree and plan to go again. It's a nice place for straight-forward cooking and salads. Fresh and well-presented, reasonably priced. Pleasant staff, too.

Pear & Brie fritters; crispy coating - yum! Steak: fine (although I am not a steak lover, normally) limp French fries with the steak; good vegetables French onion soup: OK but a little insipid in flavour Mushroom, spinach & goat cheese salad - delish! KInd waitress went out of her way to get a mango juice for 4-year-old granddaughter

Great food, good daily deals, lovely back patio - super relaxed atmosphere. The grilled salmon with spinach and goat cheese was most lovely, tasty veg medley with it. Good sized portion. The chicken quesadillas was also excellent - with large side salad. Desserts sound devine - too full to try! Will be back another day.

Had Quesadilla beef and mushroom. It comes with either fries or soup. Both are quite tasty. Beef is a bit greasy but taste good. Service is also good. Will come again.

Nice small Mediterranean restaurant with a good range of appetizers, mains & desserts. The lunch menu is very good value & the food fresh home cooked style. The alacarte menu is extensive as is the wine list, so evening dinner could be a good experience. Worth a try if you are in the neighbourhood.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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.
