Foursquare Tips

  • There's free wifi... Password baconandeggs. :)
  • The movie, American Psycho (2000) has parts of the film shot in this restaurant. The director of this film, Mary Harron, is from Toronto.
  • Had the breakfast special - smoked salmon Benedict. Delicious! Simple, tasty food. Loved it! Chilli sauce is amazing and they sell it in jars. Highly recommend this spot.
  • The service here is awful. My food came 20mins after the rest of my group. The bacon was under cooked! I can't finish this food! It STINKS!
  • Eggs Benedict Florentine for breakfast, and a nice juicy burger (almost like a meatloaf burger) for dinner
  • Cute and cozy place to get breakfast! If you're going with more than four people, you won't be all be able to sit together since the seats are tiny
  • Ugh. That's all I have to say... Ugh.
  • What a diner should look like.
  • Good place to have a heart to heart
  • Great place for down home food. Prices are cheap and the food is excellant. It'll remind you of your local coffee shop, great prices, great food, great people!
  • HEY #toronto, if you're around @YDSquare or @toeatoncentre we've got you covered for #dinner AND #latenight #drinks.
  • I don't exactly what they do differently, but these are the best home fries I've ever had.
  • Pancakes were excellent. So was eggs benedict florentine with home fries, biscuit n beans. Home style old school diner just steps away from the most commercialized intersection in Canada. Amazing
  • They say it's the oldest restaurant in Toronto, no msgs or preservatives, no benedict either, but food is really delicious!
  • Their salmon is great! Make sure to be there on time in the weekends.
  • Despite long line, my wait was about 15-20 minutes .
  • French toast is tasty
  • Lovely service, try Benedict popeye
  • The most delicious breakfast I have ever had was from the Senator! It is definitely worth the long wait! All of their food is from the area and is so delicious.
  • Ask for hot sauce. Their hot sauce is delicious
