Reccommendations for St. Clair and Yonge + area

Hi all,

Any good reccommendations for the St. Clair and Yonge area? Foodie shops, cookware/gadget stores, bakeries, casual restaurants, etc?

I have la bamboche on my list already. :)

  1. La bambouche is really more Yonge/Eglinton than Yonge/St. Clair.

    Restaurants: Cava, Terroni, Rosedale Diner, plus a few assorted Japanese & Italian restaurants that are nothing to write home about

    Foodie Shops: All the Best Fine Foods, Olliffe,

    Bakeries: Petit Thuet for pastries, Xococava for ice cream & chocolates

      'Boccone' on Yonge, west side at Rosehill...great for lunches, decidely 'downscale' but 'Senior's Restaurant' makes good reliable lunch and the upstairs was very well known and liked for Steak & Ribs ...for many years it was a neighbourhood standby but the decor is more than tired at this point, haven't been upstairs in years but have grabbed a sandwich/liver & onions. downstairs as recently as last Fall...still good in the 'diner style'....'Terroni' at Balmoral & Yonge,...further down at Roxborough & Yonge is 'Cafe Doria' and "Patachou" at Yonge & MacPherson....used to ba a lovely store called The Crockery Barn but sadly it's been gone for a couple of years. I just remember "Didier" at Yonge and St.Clair close to NW out of Toronto since December may not be open...hope this info helps somewhat....

        I second Cava -- it is wonderful. I also like the sushi place in Delisle Court -- it's quite good and not expensive.

          I like that sushi place too. It's called Sushi Garden.

            Sushi Garden has friendly staff and great lunch deals.

            Bagel House recently opened a location at Yonge and St. Clair.

            Dahso is a cute little chocolatier/cafe.

              Thanks everyone for the reccomendations. Checked out xococava, just to browse but will definitely try it next time and will check out all the other recommend places :)

                I firmly believe Bagel House makes the best Montreal-style bagels in Toronto. Chewy and moist inside, perfectly crisp and blistered on the outside. And the whole wheat bagel has only 143 calories!
