A cozy and only restaurant located in the Evergreen Brick Works. I ordered a Sausage with mushroom from the brunch menu. It was delicious. The taste was well-balanced. Just a bit pricey. Most dishes is over $30.

We had a superb evening at Cafe Belong. The food was stupendous and the service was spot on. The music was a little loud but quietened down towards the end of the evening. We have eaten in a number of restaurants this year and it was probably one of the best meals we have had. We are regulars and will be back.

This place is a lovely place to bring a date. It's very intimate (maybe because it was a quiet night) anywho, the food was exceptional. I only wished the lamb was less fatty since there's quite a lot of large chunks of fat. The menu is very limited but that's also because its farm to table type of place (local-seasonal ingredients) Also, it's worth looking into trying they're 3 or 5 course meal if you are going to order apps, entre and dessert,which I kind of regret not doing) I wasnt intending on ordering a full 3 course + drinks for 2. We usually share our apps and desserts since we're not big eaters but it's been a long day and everything just seems so enticing (stomach speaking) after ordering, little did we know we had ended with a $200 bill....which i should of went for the 5 course meal instead haha. Overall, I'd definitely be back quite often.

This place is solid. Fries are great. Cocktails are great. Atmosphere is great. Staff are nice, flexible, laid back... I come often and am always glad it’s there. Kid friendly, too.

The waitress forgot about my table and the one next to me. They all complained about her service and the manager had to bring the food out apologizing for the very long delay. I had a dairy intolerance that I informed the restaurant about, they told me not to worry and that nothing I ordered would have any dairy... but then when I got my food... guess what .... it had dairy; a ricotta cheese salad they just forgot had dairy in it. Are you kidding? Worst service and overpriced food. Can’t believe this experience. Can’t believe I paid over $60 for the worst experience ever.

Thanks for a lovely brunch - all good - low noise {suspect inside would have been too noisy} outside and perfect weather. Excellent service from Meghan.
Only slight disappointment .... frittata slightly below usual high standard .... previous occasions (about 3 or 4) would give frittata a 10/10 - Sept 08 - only 7/10. The cauliflower and cocoanut soup was outstanding.

We sat on the patio because we had our dog with us. The first waiter literally through the wood menus down on the table clearly upset that he had another table on the patio?? Perhaps he wanted his shift to end? I’m not sure but it was an awful first impression. We waited far too long for someone else to come and take our drink order. We got appetizers, but no cutlery to eat it with until someone from our party of 4 went into the restaurant and got it herself. Honestly the service was terrible. The food was good.

We have quickly become regulars. Great healthy tasty food choices, friendly and professional staff, and a great location to combine with the farmers market or walk around the nature park.

It was everything I expected in a farm to table experience. I decided to feast and had the homemade bacon, the frittata, and a side pancake. All were incredibly delicious. Washed it down with the homemade cherry pomegranate juice. Will make a point to dine here each time I’m in Toronto. There is a lot to explore in the complex the restaurant is in, a nice weekend spot for sure.

If you have never tried the restaurant before, it’s ok to have a try. The menu has very few choices and it never changed too. The environment is very nice and cozy.

The location is amazing. Such a relaxing area in the middle of the city! The food quality is fantastic. It’s a little pricey because of the ingredients used which makes it understandable. The ambiance is fantastic and the people are friendly. I always have a great time when I go there. Menu options change once in a while so there is always something to try. There are vegetarian options and they are willing to modify things to make them vegetarian which is great.

A wonderful experience much like enjoying lunch in your own backyard. Plenty shade, peace and quiet and comfortable environment. Food choices were lovely, I enjoyed the house cured and smoked trout and asparagus plate which left me totally satisfied. Followed by a refreshingly delightful iced latte. Lunch was followed by a pleasant walk around the huge ponds featuring lily pads and serenading frogs. The craft and garden stores were also interesting. Seriously like escaping the city for a few hours.

Brunch at Cafe Belong was wonderful! The food was delicious and filling (although a little expensive). The patio on a summer day is a must visit!

Outdoor patio is lovely to sit at. Staff very friendly and helpful. Love the local accessed foods for their menu. My latest meal was the pickerel and nicely done on couscous. Been a few times and will return. About $100-130 for two people including glass of wine each and dessert.

Food was good but for what we got I'd say a little over-priced. For instance the last salad on the list,which we ordered a large for $17 was 99% arugula, a few pecans (maybe 8) and a few tiny, tiny ramps (maybe 3). That's a little much for a plate full of arugula. You get my drift.

I love the setting of this restaurant and the food is always delightful. The pulled pork was perfect as were my poached eggs (perfectly cooked egg whites and nicely runny yoke, Mm, hmm, good!). Mimosa with mango juice instead of the traditional orange juice presented a lovely twist. The one thing that was a bit disappointing was the service... On the first beautiful Sunday of the year, our waitress was quite a bit of a sourpuss. Luckily the weather was too nice for us to be bothered by her negative vibes.

The ratio quantity vs price is quite low! Sorry but the Portobello mushroom main course was not a main course! I was starving after that...
