Yonge & Eglinton new Gold Star Cafe? Anyone know anything?

I googled and got nadda. It's a corner space north of Coquine... can't remember which cross street.

  1. I was wondering too. It is at Hillsdale Ave East and Yonge.

      Not a lot of obvious reno going on there!

    2. It's the same people behind the now closed Marilyn Monroe Cafe in Oakville. They lasted about 7 months there, so hopefully they'll have more luck at Y&E.

        Wow, that ended up closing down lol?
        I went once when I was in the area last year. Thought it had a chance to do well in that area.

          Yeah, I actually passed this place by and went inside and didn't buy anything. I'd be interested in hearing about the quality of the coffee and espresso-based beverages but the food didn't look very interesting.And given that espresso-based beverages are very good at the Gelato place across the street and Rachel's, they would have to be very good indeed...

            Based on the website, I think their angle is healthy types of lunches, snacks etc. I haven't gone in but plan on a coffee and cookie in the near future.

              You make a good point. I was kind of ignoring the lunch menu but it might be decent. A healthy alternative around there might be nice.
