I had lunch today at Rustic Cosmo Café in Parkdale (on Queen Street W, just west of Dufferin Street), which isn't far from my 'hood.
I've walked by it about a million times over the years but have never stopped in. For some reason, I thought it was just a coffee shop and I don't drink coffee.
I popped my head in today and discovered that they also serve food.
I ordered a BLT bagel (without lettuce) with homefries and a glass of milk. The bagel was good. It was toasted just right and was soft with a bit of crunch. The homefries were really good. They are apparently a family recipe and I could taste a fair amount of garlic (which I like). I'd get this again.
I chatted with Nicole, the owner and also my server, as I was paying. She and her mom started the café about 25 years ago when she was 17. She was friendly and took good care of me.
