Queen East & Broadview

  • f

I have a lunch meeting on Monday in the Queen East & Broadview area. Any suggestions where we might find some good food in a pleasant setting?? Thanks for your replies.

  1. Delicious food at Bonjour Brioche!

    It's at Degrassi and Queen, just east of Broadview about two or three streets.

    You can take away some great bread and sweets.

      I don't think they are open on Mondays, and FYI they don't take reservations or credit cards, but the food is very nice.

        They do have a nice product but the service and attitude is snotty.Again last week I copped a bit of attitude by a coffee laden server while I was getting take out.Seeing staff out number guests 2-1 ya think they would have it easy.The baguette is quite nice as well as the jam bake well cookies.

      2. More choices as you move east.
        Just east of Bonjour Brioche about a block is a cafe on the corner, either Joy or Jov. You can't miss it. Also, farther east is Barrio on the same side of the street...not sure about lunch though.
        There's also a cafe on the south side of Queen, about 1 block north of Broadview, sorry I don't know the name.

        1. I just noticed the lunch specials on the window for KUBO radio - which is just east of Barrio on Queen..they looked really yummy...and very reasonably priced..look forward to trying them myself!

            My bet is Kubo Radio.Creative specials and decent portions.Mitch in the kitchen is definatley one to watch in the future.Good service, clean place.Try a cupcake for dessert as well.

              Mitch? Mitchell Lipperman? Are you crazy? As mentioned, looking cool might be the best thing about this place it has been brutal in my past experiences.

            Depending on what you are looking for, the Dominion on Queen (at Sumach) is a little farther east. It is mostly pub food. You can check out the menu on their Web site. I usually go to see live music on Saturday afternoons, so I've never checked it out during the week. But they've been around since the 1800's, so they must be getting something right.
