This place is rotten. I have never scored this low on trip advisor before. Hygiene is clearly not on their radar. From the carpet not being hoovered to keeping glasses of water pre filled to save 3 seconds of tap running from the lazy staff....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
