Woodbine/Danforth - decent restaurants?

  • n

I moved here recently and live at Woodbine & Danforth. I'm looking for places that are decent (i.e. edible - -doesn't even have to be fancy!) in the immediate neighborhood. Any ideas?

  1. Immediately at Woodbine and Danforth is Relish... recently reveiwed on this board.

    1. Besides Relish there is also Lee's Thai Spring Rolls (corner of Bastedo - closer to Coxwell on Danforth) and Europe Planet on the north side of Danforth makes decent pasta and pizza, although one chef is way better than the other one. If you order take-out add 10-15 minutes onto whatever time they quote for pick up.
      Gerrard Pizza at Coxwell and Danforth is also good, and Ethiopian Village is a little tiny very strange and tasty hole in the wall Ethiopian restaurant just east of Woodbine (it's like being in someone's living room/spice shop/video rental outlet).
      Closer to Main St is Duckworth's fish and chips.
      Until the Venti effect kicks in and we get a Starbuck's I like to go to Seb's (Danforth and East Lynn) for capuccino and gelati.
      You can also search this board for Djerba La Douce which is west of Coxwell and tasty but slow.

      1. Oh I forgot, for a classic greasy spoon breakfast there is the Terminal Restaurant (behind the Coxwell subway station) and for a nicer brunch there is Three's Company which is Danforth and Lamb (closer to Greenwood). The food at Sarah's (corner of Monarch Park)is awful but they have a good drink selection.

          Go to the Terminal if you want mechanically separated meat in your club house sandwich, or if you want to pay 3 times the price for the same thing you would get at Sunset two doors down.

            Has the Terminal changed hands AGAIN? Hadn't been for a while but I recently notices new banquettes, tables and new paint and fixtures in the washrooms.

          2. Ten Feet Tall at Danforth near Greenwood. Quirky and fun, with a decent menu and good beers. Better than Sarah's for food, by a mile.

            1. Check out El Sol for great Mexican food. I went about a month ago on a Friday night and it was packed, so make a reservation on the weekends.
