      Nice sleuthing :-) I did see "Gy"-something on the red banner but it was behind me in my sideview mirror !

      I'm fairly sure it's the IHOP space and not the Pondok space, but I could be wrong. I need to drop by Shoppers Drug Mart this evening so I'll take another look to be sure.

      I like the fact it's an int'l chain, that would suggest quality and practices are up to snuff. Didn't even know there's already one downtown. And a 91% favorable rating on Urbanspoon ain't shabby at all.
