Exceptionally well prepared and presented food. Friendly and attentive service on, albeit, a very quiet Saturday evening. Look forward to returning soon.

Needs to have more gluten free options. Would be great if you had pancakes or French toast options.

The food was great and the place was beautiful, but our service was lacking. One of our waitresses was incredibly rude and I’m not sure if she was mad we stayed so long (we had a large party for a celebration) but she partically ripped the machine out of everyone’s hand when it came time to pay and was very impatient the whole brunch and wanted to rush us along. We all left at least a 15-20% tip despite her behaviour. If you have a nice manned waitress I’d say it’s a great spot, but my family was less than thrilled with the service treatment.

Good brunch this morning. Ordered toast as a side, then ordered jam. Did not think jam should be an extra charge of $2.
Otherwise, good experience.

This is a gem of a place, the food is always out of this world and the service is amazing. They source locally and truly deliver. A must of you are in Toronto. We always go for brunch, but I can only imagine dinners being awesome as well!

Excellent last minute dinner. Always a good bet that there will be something delicious here. We only had charcuterie, soups and salads but wished we had a bigger appetite for the sharing plates. They are always good. It's a little cold down there at the brickworks so wear lots of layers in cold weather. Windows are lovely to look out of but drafty. Great service and great food for casual Friday dinner.

Delicious food in a wonderful setting. The restaurant is very attractive and comfortable and the views in the valley and the brickworks are great. Plus you can take a walk, go to the market, enjoy some skating or take your kids to the playground.

Everybody at CB is always so friendly - we have dined there each Saturday for the last few weeks and we’re remembered each time (which is quite remarkable, given the number of people who must eat there daily).

Then there’s the food, which is superb. The smoked trout is a must.

The wine list is also excellent; all local, all great. Try anything from Leaning Post - you won’t be disappointed.

Had the Saturday Brunch and it was great. I had the Frittata and my partner had the Challah French Toast with grilled peaches. Both were excellent. Server was attentive and helpful. It was busy so good idea to book reservation. After lunch walked the fresh market next door.

Service very slow - surprising for weekend brunch. Many people behind the counter wandering around and wiping glassware (though drinks took forever too) who perhaps should have helped the kitchen.

As always, the ethos of this place rings true. We love the food. We love the space; particularly on a glorious sunny day. That said, this is the third visit in a row where the service has been deflating - as in, it is was so bad this visit that my fries didn’t taste as good. For example, it took the server 15 minutes (I think it was her third visit to the table) before offering me coffee. I actually didn’t even order coffee when she finally asked because my diastolic was getting the best of me. Not to mention: the place was not full (although I think the patio was busy). I’m all about being understanding with service - people (myself included) have bad days. But this is the third consecutive visit where the service was amateur. While this isn’t haute cuisine, it isn’t Denny’s either. Cafe Belong needs to Bebetter.
