When it comes to regional cuisine, imitations just won’t do. Nobody makes pasta like the Italians, nobody makes a croissant like the French and nobody makes goulash like somebody cooking from a handed-down family recipe courtesy of a Hungarian grandmother. “The Bread and Butter menu includes authentic central and eastern European dishes which are made from family recipes,” says co-owner Lazar Bunda proudly.

Lazar may well be proud of the restaurant he runs with his mother Mira and his sister Severa, and not just for the delicious and hearty food. Bread and Butter opened in 1980 and the Bunda family took it over in 1995, but not without a struggle. Mira came to Canada from the former Yugoslavia in the late 1980s as a single mother and barely spoke English. Determination to create a better life for herself and her family led her to master the language and buy the popular neighbourhood restaurant. Today, she’s got to be one of the busiest and happiest cooks in Toronto, producing her tasty dishes with the help of her children, Lazar and Severa.

Food is good but seating is terrible. And most tables are reserved incase a larger group comes in. Been here a half dozen times unfortunately today is my last.

What a charming place

what a great experience! We ate like kings and even had vine with our meals for less than $40 tips included. The best part was that it was all so tasty. The hot schnitzel served over top of crispy salad was such a delight. To finish it off we had this great chocolate raspberry cake, melt in your mouth! Highly recommend this charming little place, VB

ehhh :S it's ok but i don't really know what all the hype is about. I had their famous schnitzel but all i got was a microwaved piece of deep fried meat on bread. I wish i could say more but i didn't really like it that much then again that was my first schnitzel :P.

The best schnitzel we have tasted in a long time!

The restaurant is adorable and friendly. We had schnitzel that was seasoned perfectly, thin breading that made it crispy and authentic. The pieces were large. Mashed potatoes melted in your mouth and the peas were seasoned with a secret spice which made them delicious. The paprikash was very home-made. It was very tasty and you felt like you were in your mother's kitchen. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and definitely come again! Jan & Steve, Lennie & Susan

Such Great Schnitzel

I saw the signs for the Schnitzel Fest on Mount Pleasant and had to see what all the hype was about. Such an amazing sandwich I had to get two. Oh, and those little tarts next to the cash register, WOW!! Check this place out.

WOW!!! What an unbelievable experience. The food was great and the service was so sweet. I was walking along Mt. Pleasant and stumbled upon this diamond called BREAD & BUTTER. This has to be my new favourite place to eat in Davisville. I am so happy to have found a restaurant with Euro flavour in Toronto.

This is the best kept secret in Toronto. If you haven't visited the Bread and Butter by now, find your way to Mt. Pleasant & Millwood. I thought it was the best breakfast and lunch place I've visited in the whole city. Unbelievable service and food that many of your grew up eating. Remember what Mom used to make when you were growning up, this is the same thing. Great home cooked food with that Eastern Euro flavour.
