Someone was generous enough to give me a gift card to Table 17. Table 17 is a relatively new restaurant in the Leslieville/Riverside area. The interior is irresistibly cozy – gray walls, one giant mirror and candles everywhere. Table 17 … Continue reading

Well, diners, I can honestly say that my experiences thus far have been at least satisfactory… until now. Heading to the Lakeview Lunch, a gay-friendly and partially gay-staffed restaurant, I was anticipating a large, well-rounded breakfast like one I had enjoyed there before. Instead, on a busy Sunday morning, a large group of my friends and I were left at half-mast on all counts- food, service, and ambience- and the ordeal continued rolling downhill from there: drama, drama, drama.

Well folks you got to love old standbys and places that seem to have been there forever. The Village Rainbow has been that for me. It is a great place to stop by for beer and wings and a wonderful place grab a very large plate of poutine. They also have a great Eggs Benedict and an all day breakfast. However I thought I’d take myself down to the Rainbow for an official experience.
Looking for a quick breakfast to fit into a busy day, my partner Kara and I headed down to Church and Carlton to Daybreak. With a proud rooster as their logo it seems supremely appropriate for Daybreak to be known as the great breakfast nook located across from Zippers. Once inside the homey, sunrise-coloured restaurant, we were ushered to a large pine table that gave the feeling we were tucking in for a meal in a big kitchen. Since I’ve already enjoyed their satisfying all-day-breakfasts, I set my sights on something different.

A Belgium Spiegel Tent
By Kelly Wilk
Rating: 4/4 Flags
To put this review into perspective I am a theatre student, a theatre lover, a musical lover and I have seen my fair share of shows in Toronto that have blown my mind. But as I entered The SpiegelTent’nTavern at The Harbourfront Centre, I felt like I had entered a time machine. The wooden cabaret tent (built in Belgium in the 1920s) with a velvet canopy ceiling and muted light through the stained glass windows must have had something to do with it! However it was not just the physical appearance of the theatre that made it a nostalgic experience.
