Came here for Winterlicious dinner the other day and really enjoyed the food! The drinks were also delicous. Service was relatively quick and the servers were polite. Ambience was pleasant, though I personally found the music a bit too loud. All in all an enjoyable...More

Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is
one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's

funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to
stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and
vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca
for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers,
