So the other day wanted to go to Flo's as co-workers stated it was good

Well when I googled it stated that it was on Yorkville Ave and Bel Air???

Is there 2 locations or just ONE???

PS.......they told me it is a bit hidden so any cool directions, landmarks, etc would be helpful

    It's up some metal stairs -- in the same plaza as the classical music place, above Neat Storage. North side of Yorkville. Why do you want to go there though? The food is awful.

      Didnt know the food was awful
      In that area what is a good breakfast place, reasonably priced and open VERY EARLY?

        I'm not sure what very early means to you, but you can try Eggstasy on Bay just south of Yorkville Ave. It opens at 7:30 AM on weekdays.

          I qualify that.
          Eggstasy WAS better - but in the past few months it's definitely gone downhill. the menu has been shortened and the service has also been shortened! And it's exceptionally noisy (as always). And I've never liked the projection cartoons.
          So bad, in fact, that we just returned to Flo's. But indeed, that's not particularly better, although the service is more polite.

          I agree with sman, Eggstasy is a much better option in that area.

            7 West Cafe is open 24 hours/day and is only a couple of blocks from Yorkville. On Charles, west of Yonge.

            I've been to Flo's a couple of times and found the food to be OK, at least the brie burger which was decent. Their malted milkshakes are yum. Can't vouch for anything else on their menu though :-)

            Flo's is at 70 Yorkville on the 2nd floor.

            Belair was the old location, which had a lot more character. The image on the splash page of their website - http://www.flosdiner.ca/ - is what it looked like back then.
