George Street Diner
Toronto, ON M5A 2M6
As seen in a Shawn Mendes music video, a Daniel Radcliffe film and a few others, the George Street Diner stakes its claim as one of Toronto's most recognizable, while also maintaining the nostalgia feel customers expect in a diner. This local hangout on a great corner location feels like a real old-fashioned diner where every red vinyl booth is a window seat. If solo, swivel at the counter while you sip fresh squeezed juice, fair trade organic coffee (mild or smooth) and get a little ramekin of real maple syrup. We're intrigued by the Irish breakfast — eggs are well poached, Belfast ham is just ham and baked beans may have come from Belfast, as they taste canned. French toast is golden, tender slices of challah — satisfying with side of fruit.
