Hi,

I've been asked to suggest a good breakfast rendezvous within easy walking distance of the Holiday Inn on Lombard St. Any suggestions?

    The Senator

      Your closest option is the George Street Diner. It's pretty good though lacking in any wow factor.

      My last experience at The Senator will be the last. I don't like any of the changes that have taken it from real diner to simply weird place to eat.

      If you're looking for wow and it's the weekend, you might consider wandering a little farther to Harlem or Bannock.

        As a long time patron of The Senator, and someone who considers it to be one of the most consistent restaurants in Toronto, and lastly as someone who enjoys your reviews, I am super curious what you mean by "I don't like any of the changes that have taken it from real diner to simply weird place to eat." I hope you will share details?

        Thanks!

          I agree. George to me is a very safe and good diner. Slightly more refined than a greasy spoon, but not by a whole lot.

            I was at the Senator on Sunday and it was just fine. Had the usual breakfast special and it was hot, fast and tasty as always. What have you experienced?

            Le Petit Dejeuner is really close and great food. Warning: there can be long lineups. I'd go as early as possible.
