Students looking for a place with drinks and food! (Cheap would be great!)

A bunch of us are looking to go to a spot somewhere in downtown Toronto where we could eat and have some drinks. As we're all graduate students, we are on a very tight budget!

Also, we're going for a special occasion, our friend is moving back to Nova Scotia so not sure if that makes a difference!

Any help would be appreciated it :D

    Would be more helpful if you actually stated your budget.

      Right, sorry.

      I would say meals in the $10-20 range, drinks nothing higher than $12?

        I'm a big fan of Crown and Dragon at Yonge and Bloor or Wvrst at King and Bathurst

        But that is just my preference, are you looking for somewhere casual like a pub for beers and pub food or somewhere more where you can sit down, and have wine and cocktails

                We ended up going to Insomnia! We went out last night, and it was a great success! Great prices, and a wonderful atmosphere. There were 18 of us, and everyone was accommodated.

                Would definitely consider going back. Thanks a lot Luvtooeat :)
