Sherbourne & Shuter

Hey CHs,

I'm moving from Queen West to Sherbourne & Shuter and would love some suggestions on good places in the area. Looking more for places to drop in and get good/cheap food after a busy day at work.

  1. Not fancy, but the Ontario Bistro at Dundas and Ontario does a great all day breakfast! I also really like their souvlaki on a pita and their pancakes!!! Very,very clean, great sevice and decent food, in that neighbourhood that's the best you can hope for!!!!!!

    1. Sukhothai is on Parliament, south of Dundas. Great, great Thai food.

      1. Bahn Mi at Rose Cafe on Broadview, south of Gerard.


        1. I used to live at Dundas & Sherbourne in my University days and liked George's Chicken at Dundas & Pembroke. Nothing fancy, just take out chicken & fries (and assorted other things). There's no seating but a counter if you want to stand and eat there. I believe they still deliver for free if your order is > $10.

          The neighbourhood is still pretty sketchy, but even in my younger single days I was never hassled.

          George's Deli & Bbq
          254 Dundas St E, Toronto, ON M5A1Z6, CA

          1. Being from the neighbourhood, my first piece of advice is go to DineSafe before you go to the restaurant. It's just a sad fact of life in the hood. (Moderators, please don't vaporize. They'll need that info.)

            Sherbourne itself is a weird dead zone. You'll find you have to go a block east or west

            To the east, I'll conditionally 2nd Sukho Thai. They're very hit and miss, but when they're good they're exceptional. No liquor license. At Parliament & Shuter, Peking Express does chop suey house Chinese. They're super cheap, super fast, and super clean. Take-out and delivery only. Though not the best, for indie pizza and wings there's Peter's Cajun Creole at Parliament & Queen. Delivery & dine in. Beer & wine. Next door to that is Peter's Corner for greasy spoon food with some weirdly upscale items. Beer and wine. For pub grub, you could try the Richmond Rogue at Sherbourne & Richmond.

            Peking Express
            217 Parliament St, Toronto, ON M5A, CA

            274 Parliament St, Toronto, ON M5A, CA

            Peter's Cajun Creole Pizza
            415 Parliament Street, Toronto, ON M5A2Z4, CA

            Richmond Rogue
            284 Richmond St E, Toronto, ON M5A1P4, CA

              You can scratch Peter's Corner off the list. The non-payment of rent notice was on their window today.
