Looking for inspiration

I'm suffering from serious food fatigue. I spent half my lunch hour looking for somewhere in the Bay/Bloor area.
I've tried most of the pan-asian places on Yonge and every restaurant in Roy Square. Does anyone know of a reasonably priced lunch place to inspire me?
There's the New Yorker Deli on the west side of Bay at Charles, across from the Manulife. It's not stunningly good, but very servicable and the staff are reasonably friendly. I reccomend sticking with the Jewish-deli standards like matzoh ball soup and pastrami sandwiches rather than their wraps and whatnot.
The sandwiches at the Holt Renfrew Gourmet are sometimes good. I like their salad sandwich. I've never tried their salads but they look nice.
Also, the deli at Whole Foods Market sometimes has some good food (although most of it is pretty bland). The Asian Slaw is good. So is the Cabbage Crunch.
If you feel like walking to Bloor/Spadina, the organic cafe in Noah's Natural Foods (can't remember it's name) has great food.
