    If you love trying new local beers and playing pool, there is no better bar in Toronto. Staff are very knowledgeable about their large selection of brews! Tried my first gravity fed beer here.

    Drink by the fireplace, play pool, sit at the bar and chat with the bartenders, come with a group - perfect spot for any occasion. Amazing beer list!

    Absolutely love this place!!! In the top 3 best beer pubs in all of Toronto. Was in town for weeks and so disappointed until I tried C'est What. Totally turned my opinion of Toronto's beer scene 180!!

    Huge selection of local beer, good food at great prices. Try the shrimp and fish cakes or the buffalo burger! Half-pints and sample sizes for beer are also available.

    The hummus/tzatziki dip is great to snack on. If you're a bit hungrier try the lamburger. Both go great with a pint of St. Ambroise Apricot Wheat.

    Harry Porter and the Bourbon Soaked Vanilla Bean. Amazing name aside, it's a great beer with a strong vanilla aftertaste. Only served on Saturdays after 3pm.

    One of the best selections of micros in Ontario. Nice ambience. Beer knowledgeable owner. One thing could improve - the menu: hasn't really changed in 10-15 years. That's the only detractor.

    Friend's bday. "Can't come in. Over capacity. Get in line." "You mean these 2 guys?" "Yes." Get in 1 min later. Lots of tables open but marked "reserved". You're a pub. Pretentiousness is unbecoming.
