Cactus Club Cafe
Any thoughts on Cactus Club Cafe's planned expansion into Toronto? Located at 100 King Street W and opening next year. I've never been to Vancouver so I'm curious what people think of it.....has Rob Feenie's name attached to it.....
They're expanding here?! I did not know this.
I've been to a Calgary location several times when out there and loved every visit.
When chains I like move to Toronto they are almost always shades of their origins. So personally, I'm not holding my breath... as negative as I know that sounds. But who knows!
Seems like a lot of those west coast chains from my hometown are moving out this way! It's pretty popular in Vancouver and a good, tasty and inexpensive choice - very casual as SusanB has pointed out, and similar to Earls or Milestones, which also started out in the west. (Definitely a step up from a place like Jack Astor's, which was based out of Ontario.)
We grabbed a quick, late dinner there in Vancouver last weekend and were surprised at how good it was. It's definitely more advanced than any of the chains here.
The Feenie signature dishes were particularly good. It was also very reasonable, about the same price point as Jack Astors.
Hopefully it translates well here, I suspect they'll do quite well.
