Server helped us pick the perfect ciders for our flights, and they all delivered! The food was also so delicious and flavourful, a perfect boozy brunch!

When we arrived for our reservation, our booking had been given to another table so we had to wait a little longer (which was completely fine because it happens). When we sat down and received our drinks and waters, we were asked to move to a different table (again completely fine), and then we were put in a corner that felt fairly secluded from everything and this corner also had an abundance of wasps flying around us which made it a little unsettling. All the while, it took 1.5 hours for us to receive our food. I completely understand increased wait time for everything because of the COVID circumstances, but our experience from when we first entered the restaurant to leaving was not ideal. I very much tried to keep an open mind but our experience was off unfortunately. The food was great when it came however.

Appetizers were decent. Would recommend Brussels sprouts, friend chicken, Mac and cheese, falafels. Mains were a bit of a disappointment. Risotto was under seasoned and so were the fish dishes.

Definitely would recommend for brunch. But would say if you came for dinner, stick to the appetizers.


Service, was amazing though. Very attentive staff.

First time for brunch and it did not disappoint! The pulled pork eggs Benny were amazing. They also make their own homemade ketchup and it’s very good. Highly recommend.

We had dinner on the patio which was a wonderful an quiet experience. Great atmosphere. Amazing selection of ciders. Great selection. Good food and great service.
The heaters (one per table) made the outside dining experience even more enjoyable.

It was great except we ordered dessert and the server forgot about it. We waited around for 30 minutes before she came back with the bill and no dessert. Wasn’t an overly busy evening so was a little disappointed. Great food and experience otherwise.

We had a really lovely meal here. An added bonus is that the entire menu can be made gluten free, including the fried items (they have a dedicated fryer.)

We had an amazing dinner on Saturday night! The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, and took the time to double check with the kitchen several times to make sure I found something I could eat (celiac & lactose intolerant), with great success! There are loads of gluten free options on their menu, and the prices are really reasonable...especially with so many cider options to pair with!
Their gf buttermilk fried chicken is to die for, I'm going to have dreams about it.

Absolutely great little place with tons of character! If you’re looking for a beautiful, intimate, yet approachable place to eat, this is great. It’s not pretentious and you will feel so welcome here. We even had a vegetarian with us and the kitchen was not only able to make a meat main vegetarian, but also split it up for the table to share! They go over and above. We will be back!

Server was attentive & let us know about the special of the day, which was a very delicious French toast that I ended up ordering. Extensive cider list, which I’m sure a true cider affectionate will enjoy immensely. They were also accommodating, a friend bailed last minute and they were able to sit us at a different (smaller) table.

A friend introduced me to Her Father's Cider earlier this year, and it has since become my new favorite Toronto restaurant! Everything about it is wonderful- the atmosphere, the food, the service. I highly recommend ordering the Brussel sprouts and fried chicken- both incredibly delicious. I recently went to HFC for my birthday and they sent our table a free cider tasting for a toast and gave me free merch! Cannot recommend checking this place out enough!!

We went for Valentine’s Day and it was so cute. We were in the back room and it was quiet enough for a conversation. The service was great! You could tell they really wanted to make sure we were okay and having a good time. The cider was also great! I had the risotto and my partner had the rib eye and they were both really yummy. Definitely recommend.

Had enjoyed our first date there a few years ago, but hadn't been back and really enjoyed the Valentine's Day dinner prix fixe. Was so much food we had to take some home with us - including the dessert (which kept the night going in a perfect way when we got home!)
