Went with another couple on a Saturday night-and the place was packed! Great long bar-with attentive staff. Menu is a bit limited, but my party dug into; pierogis, fries, cheese board, as well as a very tasty hamburger! Good value, great lively atmosphere. A bonus...More

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
