I had lunch on a Sunday with friends at Cafe La Gaffe. The portions of salad and fruit were generous along with my main. With the dark red walls covered in art, the atmosphere is very cozy. The service was prompt, attentive and very friendly.

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the

wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces

They were very accommodating, give them a call and check. I think they had gluten free, not sure about other, but they are very helpful there. Worth calling and asking.
