Has anyone tried Sophie - Logan and Queen East

I went by two Saturdays ago. The tourtiere was delicious and a generous portion, paired with a forgettable leafy salad. Wonderful latte and croissant. Middling waffle. Worst service I've had in Leslieville, possibly anywhere: Rude and surly. Bill wasn't broken down, came in one total and seemed incorrect, but who knows. Uncomfortable chairs.

Rude treatment at Le Petit Dejeuner

Have had the same experience with surly staff even during early Monday lunches. The waffles and frites are good, but the eggs and sandwiches not great. Definitely not good enough to put up with that attitude.

Victoria's is closing

Why? What's replacing it? A good cheap lunch spot for old-school grilled cheese.

ISO Delicious Chocolate Cake for a Birthday

I'm the office birthday lady, the cake lady. These are my one and almost only opportunity to be a "team player."
Tomorrow is my foil, my achilles heal--a chocolate cake only lady. I hate chocolate cake, have never bought it. My standards are high, but hers are not.
Advice, pls!

Bibimbap

Hi! I work at Queen/Church. For months I've been hunting down Bibimbap for lunch. Able to do a 20 minute walk or a 10 minute streetcar ride. Any suggestions?
Or for dinner: I live Broadview/Danforth. Hoping to find somewhere closeby.

Three's Company--mediocre, go in with low expectations

I've been consistently recommended Three's Company at Pape/Danforth recently, for a few months now.
Accordingly, I went with high expectations. The poutine, featuring a greasy, brown-ringed fried egg atop bbq pork and orange-and-white cheddar topped freezer fries was okay.

My friend's spinach Benny was bland and soggy.

Hopefully this saves you a trip. Drinks on the menu were not available.

Best of Danforth Thread

What's the best brunch on the Danforth? Looking for anywhere between Broadview and Chester. Winter means I can't head down to Queen.

Blackstone meats on the Danforth

Sad to see it go. It was very helpful to have somewhere before Pape to buy specific quantities of meat from other than the dubious stuff at Loblaws or the poorly packaged at Big Carrot. Frustrating, because Royal on the Danforth is a bit far, as if Meat on the Beach. Occassionally, I want organic for my baby. I heard there is somewhere on Pape; does anyone know where?

Lady Marmalade - Queen E.

Brunched there today. Apparently the poutines are no longer available on the weeiend. Very kid-friendly. Fairly good cheddar & scallion waffles. Fun Coke Float. friend enjoyed her avocado, brie & bacon benny. Service poor: three tables seated after us had orders taken first and finished meals before we got ours. So good food, great value, a family friendly resto that suits Leslieville perfectly.

Broadview espresso - the real deal!

Has the espresso shop just north of Loblaws, south of Danforth, east side of Broadview, a couple doors down from Pizza Pizza opened up yet?

Best candy store in TO?

Avoid Suckers on the Danforth. Items stale and shop is often out of stock on basics. In fact, every time I've been looking for something specific they've been "sold out." Black shoestring, Ring Pops, etc. Too, when a friend and I asked to taste an ice cream he requested our taster sticks back and double-dipped them for a second taste. And that's the owner. In the east end I head to the Bulk Barn at Leslie/Lakeshore, in that Loblaws plaza.

Petite Thuet - King & Yonge

Meringues so glossy and gorgeous--and enormous! Dry all the way through; little trace of vanilla. Accordingly, may be to egg-y for some.

Places you like to buy fruit

I agree. I was avoiding Danfort, but now I love it. And Valley Farms has had a quite decent selection of organic and local lately. Very happy w/ it.
