Epicure Cafe…..Queen St W, Toronto

Food & Drink

We had planned on going to Tequila Bookworm for lunch but for some reason it was closed so we walked two doors down to Epicure instead. It’s a small little cafe with lots of pasta options.  Aside from their regular lunch menu they also have a few selected items on their special 20 minute lunch menu consisting of pasta, wraps, and sandwiches. Basically if you don’t get your order in 20 minutes, it’s free! Each dish comes with a complimentary non-alcoholic drink.

The food took a little longer than twenty minutes to arrive, but the food was solid and definitely reasonably priced. I wasn’t blown away but would definitely come back to sample other dishes since I’m a hardcore pasta lover. And in comparison to other restaurants in this area,  like Gusto and Cibo, $10-13 for a pasta dish is quite a good deal.

Gusto 101…..Portland St, Toronto

Food & Drink

This is probably my favourite restaurant on King St. West. It serves authentic Italian food and has the best ravioli dish I’ve ever tasted.  Sadly, they are not currently offering it anymore on their fall menu but the pumpkin agnolotti is also quite delicious. The octopus salad is a must try!
