Meet the owner

The Local Gest’s four owners (Gary, Eric, Sean and Tiffany, or GEST) aren’t your typical Toronto restaurateurs. The four locavore business partners own an acre of land in Sutton, Ontario, where they grow vegetables for their Cabbagetown restaurant.

Established in 2013 in the former Ben Wicks space on Parliament Street, The Local Gest takes pride in supporting homegrown craft breweries and Ontario farmers — it’s all “local, local, local,” says owner Tiffany Smith.

The chef, Javier, says this farm-to-table approach is his dream. “This is what I love,” he says. “As a chef, to be able to grow your own food, cook it and present it on the table…I love converting food into smiles.”

I’m so glad I found this place. Excellent food and service. If I lived in Toronto, this would be a place I would frequent often!

I did like the restaurant and the service but was surprised and disappointed that the credit card machine only allowed for 15%, 20% and higher as tips and no possible way to create my own percentage amount. I’ve never come across that. The server himself commented on that but made no suggestion that that would be corrected. Quite strange. Other than this , the evening was enjoyable.

Very friendly cafe-restaurant. Great food and very welcoming. Had a table of 5 with friends for Sunday brunch and nothing seemed beyond Tiffany and the staff to make our brunch a memorable experience. Good bloodies too. Highly recommended. Just visiting Canada from England and glad we found this friendly gem of a place.

We had a great time!! We were a party of two adults and three teens and had great food and great service. The waiter was awesome helping us pick out food and had a great sense of humor. We had salmon pasta, bbq chicken, the fried chicken sandwich, steak frites, and the Cubana sandwich. Everyone was really happy with their food. Would definitely recommend!!

shepherds pie - beyond 5stars!, upscale dessert presentation, wife loved her raspberry mojito ...... highly recommend this place, it’s artsy/whimsical with a great staff and service. For a casual atmosphere and reasonable prices, they deliver a top notch experience.

We booked this restaurant through trip advisor, received a confirmation email and subsequently got an uber to the pub as we were staying on the other side of Toronto. Unfortunately when we arrived the pub was closed for a private party. So a wasted journey and uber fare for us. Can’t comment on the food or service.
