Le Papillon On The Park1001 Eastern Ave, Toronto, ON M4L 1A8
Located a block south of Queen on Eastern Avenue, this lovely French-Canadian restaurant is renowned for both its ambience and delicately prepared food. Vegetarians can eat to their heart’s delight at brunch, lunch or dinner. There's also a prix fixe dinner menu available on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Executive Chef Lukas Vyhnal trained at a Michelin-starred restaurant in Prague, so it’d be a crime not to order one of the crepes he artistically crafts.
Le Papillon (meaning “butterfly”) has brought true French-Canadian food to Toronto diners with a diverse and tasty menu that features gourmet poutine, steak frites and savoury crepes. The elegant-but-rustic ambience will have you feeling like you're in a Montreal bistro, and the excellent service helps give this restaurant its laid-back feel. With a scenic rooftop patio and roaring fires inside the cozy dining room, this east end spot is a great place to dine in any season.
Enjoy French fare among the treetops on the elevated patio at this charming park side bistro in Leslieville. There are six savoury crêpe varieties available at both lunch and dinner. Try the ratatouille crêpe served with organic zucchini, eggplant, basil and tomato sauce, or the creamy Jacqueline crêpe filled with bacon, aged white cheddar, caramelized apple and pure maple syrup.
