Yonge & Davisville - Lunch Recs Needed!

  • 9

Just started a new job right at the intersection of Yonge & Davisville. Lunch options seem limited - any ideas, fellow 'hounds? I'm open to anything from cheap and cheerful to high-end client luncheons.

Thanks in advance!

  1. Grano, Tabule and sandwiches from La Salumeria (which is an Italian deli, but they'll make sandwiches to go, with the cured meats or cheese of your choice, on your choice of bread/roll)

    1. C'est Bon has pretty good Szechaun a few blocks north and for a special treat do not miss La Bomboche, an exceptional Patisserie

      1. I have been meaning to try out the Lunch options at Friends fine foods and groceries. I think they have a Shawarma. Perhaps you can take one for the team.

        1. I second the recs for Tabule and Salumeria. If you're up for a 10 minute walk north or south, you can hit the bagel spots at Yonge and St. Clair (Bagel House or Kiva's) or Aroma in the front of the Yonge/Eg centre. And if you have a metropass, head on down to Rosedale and get a Black Camel sandwich - there is a steady stream of regulars who head uptown on the subway from the financial district to get their weekly brisket fix!

          1. re: peppermint pate

            Second the Yonge & St. Clair and Rosedale recs, and will add Patachou as another place to stop for lunch (take-out or dine-in) if you're willing to travel as far as Summerhill.

            If you're willing to walk 10-12 minutes north of Davisville, Cha Liu is a nice place to have dim sum, although it's somewhat pricey, and portions are on the precious side.

          2. Agree with all of the above (love Tabule!). And if you don't mind going north of Eglinton, there's always Chipotle for good fast food burritos (I'm partial to the carnitas option).

              Sushi Supreme...just north of Davisville on the East side of Yonge. Very cheap and cheerful.Good lunch specials, lots of turnover...our go to place for cheap, decent sushi.

            2. Tabule and 5 Doors North have always been my go-to dinner places but Bamburger is joining them. I also enjoy Quesada for a healthier option on burritos or quesadillas (though quite a few on CH are not that impressed with the Q).

              1. I'm closer to Eglinton, but I like: Lola for big, tasty lunch bentos, Mariachi's for Mexican, and Fresh Ginger on Eglinton just East of Yonge for really cheap Vietnamese, also agree with the Tabule recs.
