When I moved to Toronto 30 years ago, I lived a block away from this restaurant. Back then, though, it was a burger place called Lips. For $5, you could get a burger, fries and pop. It was a great deal and good food! I moved away from the neighbourhood and didn't go back again. It's on my route to work. I saw it had changed styles and put it on my list of places to go. It turns out the place is back in the family.

Our server started us off with warm bread. Yum! It was crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. They usually serve it with olives but Gord's allergic to olives.
Gord ordered Spinach Pesto pasta and added chicken. He said it was really good and he'd get it again. He ended up taking some home.
I ordered a pizza with pepperoni and sliced tomatoes. It was a really good pizza. The dough was soft and chewy. It was cheesy and there was lots of pepperoni and tomatoes. It tasted garlicy, which I liked. I too took some home.
I felt like something sweet ... and it is my birthday after all ... so I ordered Homemade Chocolate Cake. Gord had the berries, a bit of ice cream and a bit of cake. Yes, I ate the rest. It was good ... definitely hit the spot for sweetness.
Our servers were friendly.
We'll be back!
