Magic Oven: A DelectablyChic! Toronto Fave

Customized Tofu PizzaSLIDER

It’s not hard to admit that Toronto has a love affair with pizza, especially thin crust pizza.  However, most pizza places offer the same old choices, and usually not vegan or gluten-intolerant friendly.  This is NOT the case with Magic Oven, which boasts five locations across the 416.  Visit the restaurant’s website and you will […]

A Brighter Sorrel Restaurant in Summerhill

Sorrel BranzinoSLIDER

My husband and I first went to Sorrel Restaurant last Christmas when it was located on Yorkville Avenue.  The dinner we had was excellent and we decided to go for our Valentine’s Day dinner.  Sadly, that didn’t happen as the restaurant was a victim of a devastating fire just a few weeks later (we went […]

Saying Goodbye to the Coffee Mill

Coffee Mill Chicken SchnitzelSLIDER

The Coffee Mill, located on 99 Yorkville Avenue, is closing on September 7.  The restaurant has been in the area since Yorkville was a prime hippie spot in the 1960s and offers old school European fare like schnitzel, cabbage rolls and strudel.  Until the advent of espresso bars across the city, it was probably one […]

Sharing the Psychedelic Menu at Fat Pasha

fat pasha pita and hummusSLIDER

Ahhh….Israeli and other Middle Eastern-inspired cuisines. It’s definitely the latest “it” cuisine here in the city, and like most ethnic cuisines, it isn’t likely a passing fad.  I feel that it’s definitely here to stay (because it’s just so good).  In my opinion, once a culture’s food rises out of the mom-and-pop, “hole-in-the-wall” restaurants, you’re […]

Bees, Pizza and Osteria dei Ganzi

Ganzi, Osteria Ganzi, Toronto, restaurants, Cynthia's Restaurant List

I can’t believe it took me over one year to have a proper meal at Osteria dei Ganzi, a restaurant on Jarvis Street, near the National Ballet School.  The last time I went there was for its media launch in June of 2013, where we had the chance to taste several of their offerings, including […]

Bonjour Colette!: Photos from the Media Preview

Colette Grand Café, a French-inspired cafe and restaurant at the Thompson Hotel (550 Wellington Street West), held a media preview the day before its grand opening.  Located at the former home of Scarpetta, this restaurant offers both a grab-and-go bakery and a sit-down restaurant.  At the media event, attendees were given the opportunity to taste […]

Coco Lezzone: Delicious Food, Great Atmosphere


There have been several restaurants located at 137 Avenue Road, located just a bit north of Bloor with various different types of cuisines, including Indian and Italian. In fact, I had reviewed the Indian restaurant once when this site was still known as Prospere Magazine. Sadly, it closed shortly after the article was published. Then […]

Menus, National Chains and Summerlicious 2014


As most people in Toronto know, Summerlicious starts this Friday.  Again, some 200 restaurants will be participating in this twice yearly affair where people get to dine on a three course meal of $15, $20 or $25 for lunch or $25, $35 or $45 for dinner.  However, what I’ve always wondered was how restaurant decide […]

By the Way, Let’s Do Brunch!

Mediterranean ScrambleSLIDER

I’ve lived within walking distance from By the Way Café for a decade, but have never tried the restaurant.  This Mediterranean-influenced eatery serves a delicious brunch on the weekends, offering items that might not be seen in many other restaurants in the city.  The restaurant is not large, though with a patio, the number of […]
