Only kitchen open 24h that doesn't serve fast food. The staff is very friendly and the service is fairly quick

... and my wife liked it, too. We had a very nice meal for two here, immediately prior to heading to the Panasonic Theatre for a show. Service was attentive and professional... not too "familiar" like you get in some places. The menu variety was extensive, and our meals were very good. Not pretentious, not especially "luxurious", but it's very... More

I love this cafe mainly because of the fact that it is ALWAYS open. I'm a night owl and this place is a go-to for me when I feel like grabbing a bite. I mostly go there at night and the ambience is very intimate. Great place for a date or to have coffee/drinks with a few friends. Food is... More

Dropped in for dinner after a movie (Jackie) at the nearby cinema. I've walked past this place a couple of times and completely overlooked it --- it's such a narrow entrance. Warm atmosphere, busy but not hectic. Efficient service from knowledgable server. Loved the smoked meat and crisp salad. I'll be back.

It is possible to fall prey to some seriously bad meals on Yonge Street. Don't let that happen. 7 West Cafe is a local favourite open 24 hours a day/365 days a year. 7 West features excellent pastas and hearty sandwiches. Kids love the chips.

So once again had the chance to go to 7 west and our server was this awesome young Asian lady server who took care of us. I ordered there hummus and made sure everyone got a chance to try it because anyone I make try it loves it and both my freinds one from Brazil and one from the phillipines... More

I've been coming to 7 West for over 20 years. It has a nice laid back atmosphere and the food is consistently good. They have 3 floors and a small patio in the summer. I usually eat on the 2nd floor. I work nearby and come here with colleagues or by myself for lunch. It's not too loud so people... More

We stopped here for breakfast. Service was friendly and the food was great. But, no coffee refill. It did not come with the meal, which made the whole thing rather out of our budget. We only had eggs and bacon.

On a budget trip to Toronto, this was our one fancy meal expense. The Poutine is good and the house burger is great! The cocktails, are worth every penny you pay!

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.
