    Best place in the neighbourhood for 24/7 menu, always a blast to go for a nice meal after a night out!

    Decent 24 hour cafe with surprisingly good food for an all day joint
  • Bruna R.
    It's a lovely small place. I've never been on the upper floors but the one right at the entrance is cute! The food are delicious and the prices are fair. Downside: your clothes will be smelly.

    I've never had a bad meal there. Great ambiance, especially the top floors, and open 24 hours. Love the chicken penne.

    The "Pasta What?" was advertised with vegetables but had none — just 4 olives. I asked about it and they brought me a side plate with stir-fried broccoli, zucchini, and mushrooms. Good save!

    Way too expensive for what you get. Really good desserts, though.

    Great place to grab a bite, have a drink or find a quiet corner to chill and hangout. No rush atmosphere

    The place is pretty chill but the service is not the greatest and the food is pretty mediocre especially for the price..

    3rd floor for a romantic date. Penne Arrabiata is spicy but good. Tomato zucchini soup is really delicious. Small portions for pita pizzas. Satisfying overall!

    Poor and very slow service. Great food no doubt, but it took >40min just to get a waiter's attention to ask for the check. I expected much, much more.

    Samantha BrownAugust 17, 2014
    Amazing for late nights because it is open 24/7. Get the macaroni and cheese and ask for pulled pork on top (not on the menu but a tip from our server). So good!

    7 West is a classic in Toronto, and who knew, but it's 24 hours. I recommend the pastas, but the menu is pretty decent across the board. Service is always a little sketchy here, so expect to wait.

    Awful burgers (no sauce, meat overcooked) with crisps (yes supermarket crisps when you pay $15). Bruschetta ... Far from what it is supposed to be (hot, white tomatoes).

    Such a cozy place, the kitchen is open 24 hr, 365 days a year. Pretty pricey, but the coffee bowls are hench and they have tons of Italian comfort food options, perfect after an alcohol fueled night.

    It's a nice spot that's open 24 hours per day. The atmosphere is good and would be ideal for a date. You can hit up just for the desserts (which is what I did).

    Nachos feed a lot of hungry souls. Get it with their homemade sloppy Joe meat. I ask for it on the side so the nachos don't get soggy so quickly

    Worst Customer Service, poorly dressed and behaved waiters; and even worst Manger, poorly made food, and the Manger's are total sh*t; give a tip or THEY WILL TELL YOU TO NEVER COME BACK! (LOL)

    Amazing ambiance, especially the 3rd floor. Come for the vibe, not necessarily the food. Poutine is a bit too much gravy, cheese not squeaky enough! Food will fill you though!

    Service can be great but a couple lousy servers. A good late night after hours food option. A bit more pricey than other late night eats but likewise better with a chill atmosphere. Perfect for a date
