We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at the Farm'r. Fresh ingredients. Total comfort food. Many reviewers complained about portions being too small, but our group thought they were the perfect size. Would definitely visit again!

My new favourite lunch spot near the St. Lawrence Market area! I was first hesitant that their food was so healthy it wouldn't be my type. This place proves that vegan and healthy options that are locally sourced can  be affordable and delicious!We ordered 4 different meals and I can say the Mac and Cheese, Falafels and any of their salad selections were amazing. It is an order at the front type of restaurant and the servers were very nice. The spot is cozy and beautiful! More...

Everything is fresh and tasty. Although the beef brisket is a little bit dry, the sweet potato side and the heirloom & cucumber salad are perfect.

Farm'r Eatery is an amazing option for fresh food! We enjoyed a hearty meal here after several hours of walking through Toronto with the sun punishing us to no end. I would definitely recommend this place if you want a quiet, quick, and healthy meal! More...

Wonderful place near St Lawrence Market! Such delicious, fresh food! Roasted lemon pepper chicken was superb, as was the quinoa salad and broccoli.  Chocolate chip cookie was delish as well. Kids enjoyed the Mac and cheese. Will be back for sure when in Toronto again! More...

Pleasant place for a bite to eat after wandering the St Lawrence Market... If you haven't eaten your way through the market. Order at the counter and then sit, they'll bring you your food. Clean, healthy, tasty ... More...

Tasty clean food, pleasant eating space and friendly staff! They played a solid mix of indie rock music and I was even able to buy a kombucha with my meal. I'm only in Toronto for the day, but I would definitely eat here again the next time I'm in the area! More...

My family was at the St. Lawrence Market and it was PACKED! We needed a quick lunch and we stumbled upon Farm'r Eatery. I'm very glad we did because that is one of the best lunches I've had in awhile. I had Turkey Meatballs as my main dish and they were wonderfully cooked. You get two sides and I chose Sweet Potatoes and Mac & Cheese! Out of the two I liked the Sweet Potatoes better but the Mac & Cheese was still very good! Overall my experience at Farm'r Eatery was fantastic! I would go back tomorrow if I could! More...

This was a great spot. The vegan falafels were delicious. Really easy to order, choose a protein and two sides. The potatoes also delicious. Outdoor sitting area is great. Love the atmosphere of the place, light and airy. Steps from Toronto ride share. More...

This place had a very nice interior and I liked that they did not use any plastic utensils or playes and everything was sustainable. No one time use only plastic fork and knives but actual silverware. The staff was very friendly. The food was delicious. The chicken was very well cooked and nicely seasoned and the soups were very good too. They even offer pastries, which is nice if you feel like having a small dessert after. When we ate there for lunch, there were only a few other people there so we did not have any wait time. You can sit outside too, but we opted not to since it was raining. Definitely would come here again! More...

I loved visiting this farm-to-table restaurant during my trip to Toronto. It was the perfect spot for a quick, casual lunch. I got the braised turkey meatball plate with the kale & quinoa salad and the roasted garlic potatoes. My entire meal was bursting with flavor and I loved how fresh, simple, and healthy everything on the menu is. I will definitely be back the next time I'm in Toronto! More...

I would dare you to visit Farm'r and eat the food. I was curious about the reviews and decided to take a quick walk and check out the place. At first, it's kinda confusing to have a multiple menu hanging out, but the shared tables, the tasty and natural food got me entirely.From meh to OMG in the first bite.On the photo, meat balls with Italian sauce, chili brocolis and roasted sweet potatoes, a dream team!

Great food at a reasonable price. You order at the counter then then bring out the food when it's ready. Not a fancy place, but the quality of the food more than makes up for it. Drink deals are pretty good too.

We had brisket, falafels, roasted broccoli, mushroom arugula salad, spiced sweet potato, quinoa kale salad, and a chocolate chip cookie appetizer. It was all good. Simple, fresh and healthy.  The down side was that it was chilly inside and people were eating with their jackets on. The counter staff were friendly and appeared to enjoy working there. The bathroom was clean and had local artisan soap that was nice. It appears to be popular for takeout; there was a steady stream of food delivery guys coming in for orders the whole time we were there.  There is not a whole lot of seating, which is mainly communal style tables. In the summer there would be double the seating with the patio.  I recommend you go eat there. More...

I'm absolutely smitten with Farmr!

As a vegetarian, I sometimes find menus lacking. But Farmr never disappoints.

The roasted carrot soup I had last night was so thick and delicious. The roasted pepitas added a depth and really complimented the soup.

Given the time of the year, I've had many chickpea and lentil fritters. I can honestly say that I never get bored of them. But... that cheddar garlic bread last night?! Why didn't I take a loaf to go? A carb/garlic lovers dream!

It's also not just great food at Farmr; it's a warm, welcoming staff and an inviting atmosphere that's more like eating at a friend's house than in a restaurant.

I so hope for fantastic success for this little, local joint, but a small, selfish part of me wants to keep it a secret.

Farm'r is a really beautiful hidden away lunch gem. They have great flavour in their foods however I found the portion sizes rather lacking. I ordered a lunch which consisted of a soup, a piece of corn bread (amazing) and a stuffed pepper. The rice in the pepper was still cold in the middle when it was served to me which meant it was likely reheated. Additionally the rice was dried out. That was disappointing. The space itself is really lovely. I like that they serve craft beers and have wifi so you can work in this relatively well-lit and rustic looking space. Overall go for the soups! I really liked those. More...

At Farm'r, everything is fresh and made in-house, and they use only local ingredients. They are a farm-to-table restaurant with a casual atmosphere, no pretentious vibes at all! Their focus is on the ingredients, as opposed to relying on sauces or additives for flavour, allowing the fresh ingredients to shine. This is especially obvious, in my opinion, in their salads.I thought everything we tried was delicious but my favourites were the grilled rare tuna - very fresh and paired nicely with the fresh pesto - and roasted sweet potato, which was smooth and tasty, and is one of my go-to side dishes. Finally, I think we all thoroughly enjoyed the ham hock stew, which as my friend says, smells like Thanksgiving in a bowl. Hearty and homey, perfect for enjoying on your own or in the company of close friends or family. In my opinion, the soup is a manifestation of the vibes given off by Farm'r itself: very cozy and inviting! More...

Very small and clean restaurant located on the Esplanade near St. Lawrence market. I love the values of this restaurant and what they are trying to promote in the community. For brunch, I ordered the Tomato & Basil Baked Eggs. Not only is it reasonably priced, but the portion size is perfect. You can taste the difference in food given their focus on health and quality.

I can describe my dining experience here in three words: fresh, healthy, and appetizing. This restaurant allows you to create your own plate with a main protein plus two sides. I opted for the brisket, sweet potato, and the corn. Everything was cooked well and was packed with flavor. The dining experience is casual as you order at the counter and seat yourself. Despite this, the staff still stopped by to check on us and make sure we were having a good experience. Everyone there was super friendly and welcoming. As for the space itself, the inside of the restaurant is clean, well decorated, and bright. There is also an outside patio that sits in an alleyway keeping you removed from the busy street out front. I really enjoyed their whole vibe. I wish there was one of these in the states because I would like to eat here more often! More...

delicious, healthy, local meals in the heart of downtown Toronto. I very rarely give out 5 stars, but this restaurant is truly in the top of its class.I had the beef brisket, corn on the cob, and sweet potatoes. it was by no means a gourmet meal, but it was remarkable in that all three dishes were cooked exceptionally well. the potatoes were the perfect amount of smooth and creamy, the corn was soft and came right off of the cob upon biting, and the beef was tender and well-seasoned. the interior is tastefully decorated in a light-hearted and modern fashion that fit with the entire vibe of the restaurant. the staff were super helpful with recommending dishes that worked around my dairy allergy and overall came off as friendly people. costs were also very fair for the quality and quantity of food.

"I can see why healthy people would be regulars here... it's so good... but I don't see myself being a regular here!"What time we arrived/Wait time?Arrived on a Wednesday at 6pm. It wasn't that busy. Got a table right away. Got busy around 6:45pm.Atmosphere?Ugh it is beauuuutiful here. So simple. Almost seems like a fancy soup kitchen. They really push community style seating because everything is just a bench style. you eat beside strangers and just enjoy their presence. Love the exposed pipes and plants everywhere.Service/Staff?Everyone was quite nice! Nothing too over the top. Hardworkers. Teamwork was good there.Food/Menu?The food is super healthy here. Everything is locally sources and hormone/antibiotic free (the meats). They have tons of healthy vegan options as well. We got the pesto salmon, beef brisket, roasted carrots, kale/quinoa salad and potato salad. It was so yummy!!! Prices were decent as well.. pretty cheap! I felt healthier and good about my life choices when I walked out of there :) More...

Excellente adresse pour un brunch paisible dans une ambiance moderne et relaxante avec une salle conviviale et sobrement décorée. Une terrasse est également disponible. J'ai choisi le BLT Breakfast Bagel accompagné d'une salade de potatoes froide à la crème fraîche et à l'aneth, avec un Drip coffee et un jus d'orange pressé pour 24,60$CA. Le bagel était délicieux, préparé minutieusement sous mes yeux. Le personnel est avenant et discret. Je recommande !! More...

We had Farm'r cater our engagement party this past weekend, and we're so happy we did. It was a big order (lunch for 70 people) - so I'm very impressed with the amount of food Farm'r was able to prepare and deliver to our door.Their catering coordinator, Sheena, was there to answer the millions of questions I had and was fantastic to work with from beginning to end.The food is excellent. It's fresh and tasty, and I love that they use locally sourced food and ingredients that are in-season. The chicken was a little dry, but the beef brisket and turkey meatballs were a big hit! Favourite side dishes were the roasted sweet potato (my personal favourite) and the quinoa/kale salad.We've been here a couple times to eat at the restaurant, but this was the first time we used their catering services. Thanks to your team again for helping us with the day, all the food was lovely. Two thumbs up! More...

Farm'r is a nice little eatery near St.Lawrence market (downtown) that offers simple honest farm-to-table type food - a healthy alternative to the downtown dining scene. The interior is very clean, modern and with a rustic touch from the wooden table tops and accents. They also have cute outside seating. I ordered the hay roasted chicken, which comes with chimichurri sauce. For my two sides, I chose roasted sweet potatoes and Farm'r salad greens. The chicken with the chimichurri sauce was very delicious. The bite of vinegar from the sauce and the freshness of the herbs made for a tasty accompaniment to the poultry. Unfortunately, I think the chicken was already cooked ahead of time and reheated. I found the portion of chicken to be a bit small. The generous portion of roasted sweet potatoes were tender, seasoned and spiced very well. The greens were fresh and lightly dressed with some oil and vinegar - this was simple but well done. As alluded to above, after the plate, I was still hungry, so I ordered the grilled asparagus and fennel salad. This was not worth an additional $3.50. There was barely any asparagus and it was too charred to eat. The asparagus pieces were chopped very small which made it hard to take off the char. Although the portion size could increase, Farm'r provided a simple, healthy and overall tasty meal. More...

Probably one of the cheaper and tastier brunches I had in Toronto. The sandwich was grand and you get a choice between potato salad and salad greens. I got the potato salad and it was one of the best I've ever had. Definitely a filling choice. Would recommend to anyone! More...

Truly a hidden gem in the St Lawrence Market tucked into a quiet corner Farmr Eatery is a unique place.  With its rustic, contemporary and farm-to-table type of place it was something both Jen and I wanted to try out. Focusing on local, seasonal ingredients their menu and motto is to keep things fun, simple and seasonal.  We both decided to sit in their lovely yet cozy patio area. As for food we, in keeping things light before our ACTUAL dinner we tried out their Roasted sweet potatoes, Brisket and beet feta salad.  Their prices are quite reasonable and the shareable portion was more than enough.Their service was very helpful as we were not sure what to order in addition they came back every so often to ask if we needed anything.I'll definitely be back to Farmr as they've got other great dishes :) More...

We came here for dinner last night looking for a healthier option compared to our usual restaurant meals. For around $15 each you can get a main meat option and two sides. We got the chicken adobo, miso eggplant, roasted sweet potato and the turkey meatballs, eggplant, and potato salad. The chicken adobo was really, really good! It's a new item on their menu. We also loved all the sides we got (particularly the eggplant). The turkey meatballs weren't my favourite - they're spiced in a certain way that I didn't quite like and when the dish came out the meatballs themselves were no longer warm.They have a really nice summer patio in the shade of a large arching alley way and they had cute lights set up which made it a great place to eat. And on Monday nights they offer a bottle of wine for $20!I've heard that the portions when eating out are a bit smaller so it's better to eat in if you can. My friend also comes here regularly and suggests the beef brisket sandwich. I'll definitely come back to try it! More...

What a great spot! Met 2 girlfriends here for dinner and was delighted to learn that Monday is $20 for a bottle of wine. On this hot summery night, we really appreciated the crisp and dry rosé, which like all their wines is from Ontario. Their motto is basically seasonal, local and scratch-made. The garlic cheese bread is to die for! Between us we sampled the Chef's Filipino special (afraid the name escapes me), ribs, beet & feta salad, asparagus & fennel salad, roasted sweet potato and eggplant dish. All were declared as delicious! We will definitely all return and have agreed to make this our new regular meeting spot! More...

Amazing food and staff! The menu is a bit lean but this place offers something for everyone from vegetarian, fish to meat lovers. The two of us ordered the beef brisket and turkey meatball to share. Each of us get to choose two sides and everything was absolutely delicious.The place has both indoor and patio sitting. You would order up front and the servers would bring your food to your table after.The price point is right for the quality of food they are offering. The two of us spent a total of 30 doles plus tips. I will definitely recommend this place to everyone if you are in the St. Lawerence market area! What a hidden gem! More...

A nice neighbourhood joint in the Esplanade/St. Lawrence Mkt area. Renovated industrial space with warm colour tones, farm house tables, relaxed atmosphere, and good homemade food. It is a lovely place to get together for brunch with some friends on a weekend in a casual, unrushed setting. And the food was delicious. Can't wait to try the regular menu as well. More...

I'm a big fan of Farmr and visit regularly for my fix of healthy lunch options. I love the roast chicken sandwich and their salad green side comes with a deliciously flavourful dressing with a bit of a kick for good measure. Sure, the prices aren't cheap (between $10-15 for a main, $7.50-11 for a sandwich with no side) but neither is fast food these days so I'm fine with spending a few dollars more for food that is sourced locally, prepared in-house using seasonal ingredients and just happens to be delicious at the same time.There's a huge outdoor patio for summer days with plenty of seating. Their menu changes regularly so check their website. They also cater and you can order through Ritual if you're in a rush.Farmr also happens to have beer on tap along with cider and wine, and are open til 9pm weekdays so you can totally drop by for a delicious dinner on the patio with a cold beverage. A welcome addition to the area that I'm sure will do well! More...

Highly recommend! The team at Farmr focuses on simple, nutritious and tasty food that highlights in season items and it shows. Definitely recommend the brisket and the lentil and chickpea fritters are a nice alternative from meat.I first had the food dining in, but have since ordered it for the office for lunch a few times and it's always a hit. Lunch boxes make it super simple and there's enough variety that everyone is happy. Cookies are great as well.Nice to see businesses focusing on simple, nutritious and affordable food! More...

Order at the cash and sit down to enjoy casual communal dining. It really works here and goes nicely with the casual but comforting and flavourful food.We came here for weekend brunch and had:Tomato & Basil Baked Eggs: $9.99Tomato, peppers, cumin, feta, olives, baked eggs. Add grilled sourdough bread for +1Full Farm'r: $13.992 baked eggs, peameal OR strip bacon, grilled sourdough, beans, side salad OR potato saladEverything was tasty. I love their sourdough bread which is char toasted for extra flavour. Really, the Tomato $ Basil Baked Eggs NEEDS to come with the sourdough bread by default otherwise its literally bowl of tomatoes (though tasty), topped with eggs. The potato salad is also amazing!

This is a review for their catering. We ordered food from here for my sister-in-law's baby shower and we were all so impressed with the food! The delivery arrived exactly on time and all the items came in containers with sign cards which was nice for guests to know what was what. We ordered the hay roasted chicken, lentil & chickpea fritter, roasted sweet potato, cabbage and lentils, beet and feta salad and ontario mushrooms & kale. The chicken was so perfectly cooked. It was tender and flavourful. The chimichurri sauce that came with it was light and had just the right amount of herbs and garlic but didn't overpower the chicken. The chickpea fritters were incredibly delicious! It was moist and not the least bit oily.The veggies dishes we had ordered all tasted very fresh and delicious. Everyone raved about how the food was healthy but was still really tasty. One girl even said she would want to order from here for her office. I would 100% recommend ordering food from Fam'r as the ingredients are fresh and you can taste the care and passion put into each and every dish. It's also walking distance from my workplace so I will be coming here for lunch when the weather is warmer :) More...

There's a "NY resolution" sale, i.e. healthy food, on Ritual right now (January 2018), so I decided that rather than wasting precious studying time buying groceries and cooking stuff that my partner and I don't enjoy eating anyway, why not just order takeout from Farmr, which is just down the street. Last time I tried their weekend brunch and found the prices and portions very reasonable, and the flavors and nutritional value to my satisfaction. Dinner tonight was again 5/5 - the portion sizes were much bigger than I expected for takeout and I was genuinely surprised because previous Yelp reviews reflected the opposite! I ordered the Classic (usually $12.99, but Ritual discount right now!) and the small Farmr platter ($10.99). My favorite side was the roasted cauliflower with pear and almonds (vegan)! It's actually served cold and the slightly crispy cauliflower plus vinaigrette and sweet notes from the pear work so well together! The seasonal veggie slaw btw probably contains dairy in the dressing I'm sure, since it's so creamy. The vegetarian lentil chickpea protein patties were hearty, but flavor-wise very bland and they were so dry... Disappointing. The beets/feta/pumpkin seed salad was faultless and has a wonderful slightly creamy, melt-y overall texture from the cheese. The smashed potatoes also looked pretty appetizing and well seasoned (I didn't try though - sometimes I judge a dish by the cover).Farm'r, you may have become my new I'm-too-lazy/busy-to-cook solution!

Chimchurri chicken awesome... meatballs awesome..The wait on Wednesday for the chicken was excruciatingly long. Was offered free baked goods, didn't accept.,was a nice touch, rarely seen in today's mediocre restaurant industry.Portion size, wish it was a bit bigger. Roasted cauliflower was cold(?) not sure if that's how the side is supposed to be or because of my wait on Wednesday. Thursday wasn't busy at all... drinks except for coffee and water, no other options for low calorie/low carb.Would I go again, I did, even after my wait on Wednesday... I went back to try the meatballs.Price $$$ vs st Lawrence market $$ right next door Staff ultra friendly big plusPortions a could be a bit bigger More...

I have been searching ages for something in Toronto similar to my favorite healthy homestyle chains in Southern California - Tender Greens and Lemonade. Something that is casual cafeteria style that is perfect for a weekday lunch or dinner that is healthy but doesn't require the time, expense and commitment of full-service dining. Farm'r is as close as I've found here in town!The proliferation of bowl places in Toronto is ok but what I really want is a delicious protein with sides just like you'd make if you were a great cook at home. I had their hay chicken with kale/mushroom, salad, and root veggie slaw and had it with a ginger butternut squash soup that tasted like a warm hug on a chilly day! The yummy toasted bread on the side just oozed quality. To be honest the main didn't blow me away like the SoCal chains but I loved the fact that it was plated beautifully and the flavors shone through. Too often when you eat out even in healthy places they drown everything in sodium which I can't stand. Love the fact they have rotating specials just like Tender Greens. Will definitely pop by now that I've discovered this gem! More...

This review is actually for their catering - though I hope to visit their store when I can, based on my pleasant experience of their food at the event I attended.I can't speak to their value as I don't know what was paid; however it was at a fundraiser for a not-for-profit and we were informed that they provided a great deal as a result - so they earn points for that.Before I was aware of their approach and values (local sourced, healthy, seasonal, etc...) I could taste it in the food. All the ingredients had a natural freshness and taste about them, and though the food was well prepared and seasoned, the quality of the food itself is what stood out.I was very fortunate that a lot of food was available, so I was able to have 3 proteins (don't judge) of salmon, roast beef and lentil and chickpea fritters. Each were near perfect, and though I'm not a vegetarian, it's actually the fritters that I'm dying to try again. The salmon was wonderful and I was very impressed out how tender and properly cooked the roast beef was. It's not too common in my experience to have great roast beef at a catered event (when the food is transported).And on the subject of vegetarian dishes, how is it that the root veggie slaw and beet and feta salad are also vividly in my mind? Everyone at my table and earshot were quite vocal with their satisfaction in the food.If you're looking for catering, I would certainly recommend that you look more into FARMR. Though I can't speak to the food at their restaurant, I would feel very comfortable directing people to it based on such a positive experience I had. More...

Absolutely delicious and will definitely come back. It's a hidden gem (at least for now). We shared a family platter and a little farmr so that we could sample everything. I highly recommend the brisket and smoked trout. The taste was flavourful and unique. The beet and feta side was also great. Definitely won't be my only visit! More...

I've been meaning to try FARMR and finally got the chance to tonight. I ordered the Little Farmr (1 protein, 1 base and 1 side) which was the perfect sized dinner meal for me. I had just come from a workout and was looking for something healthy and tasty and this really hit the mark!! I ordered via Ritual and my food was ready to go when I arrived. The inside is super cute and goes with the whole farm to table concept/theme. Living in the area I would love to come back and dine-in. I ordered the hay roasted chicken with chimichurri sauce (amazing!), the smashed new potatoes and the root slaw. Would definitely recommend to anyone in the area. Can't wait to go back! More...

I order off here on Ritual often at work and they always accommodate to my "veganized" orders. Appreciate the insightfulness of the items they replaced to make the meal vegan!Food is great, however, the chickpea fritters were a little on the salty side (maybe I had a bad batch) but service is always top notch! Be sure to get the mushroom, kale, cracked wheat and sweet potato. More...

UpdateThey have a wifi password now: farmresplanade.They change up the menu every month or so, I've been told. They also have a bar, so if you're craving some wine/beer/cider... or if you're in the mood for some kombucha, you have some options! Love the homey food options here! More...

A quaint restaurant in the Esplanade.  Came here on a rainy saturday night for dinner with a couple of friends.  I ordered the Classic plate consisting of the brisket, smashed potatoes, red cabbage slaw and the beet and feta salad.  The beef was tender and well-seasoned.  The tomato bbq sauce complimented the meat quite well.  The red cabbage slaw was mediocre, I was a bit disappointed by the apple's texture within the slaw though.  They were soft and mushy and I was expecting crisp and crunchy.  The smashed potatoes were fairly standard so no complaints there.  The beet salad was above my expectations,  the pumpkin seeds really helped elevate the salad.  Overall quite delicious and better yet, I don't feel the shame after eating the brisket due to the healthy sides they offer.  Would definitely come back when I'm craving bbq yet something light.

This is a relatively new restaurant on the Esplanade. Really bright, airy interior, and a fairly large side patio. You can combine different bases, sides, and proteins to make your meal. Everything we ordered was delicious! Tasted healthy yet satisfying - wouldn't have changed a thing with our meal. The menu is simple but there are enough options for everyone. Service was great, and they also serve beer and wine. Can't wait to come back to try the brunch! More...

Loved it! Filling, delicious, healthy, reasonably priced--this place is like having Sunday dinner any day of the week. Slow-cooked mains, tasty sides and salads, lots of veg options--you get to choose your size and combination. Great place for an appetizing, balanced meal if you are on your own, would be ideal for a family or group. Light and airy, lamp-lit outdoor space--nice fresh addition to the St. Lawrence Market/Esplanade stretch. Beer/cider/wine too. More...

Healthy, fresh, and affordable! You'll feel good after eating lunch here - great to takeaway or eat-in. Their interior has a farm-like feel (makes sense...!) and the patio is very quaint. Staff are also extremely friendly! I ordered the chicken, salad, coleslaw, and kale with mushrooms (Classic FARMR, good portion size). The chicken was cold, which was my only disappointment, but the tomato sauce on it was really tasty! Coleslaw has a strong mustard taste, and very fresh. The kale with mushrooms was probably the best part of the meal and something I hope to mimic at home. My friend ordered the meatballs which were also on the cold side, but lean and tasty too. They have seasonal specials online so check them out before heading over! Happy to see this local business thriving - will be back. More...

This is a reasonably affordable good BBQ eatery located close to st.lawrence market that's a little hidden (gem), you can easily walk pass it so keep your eyes open!I didn't give 5 stars because I wasn't impressed with the beef brisket, it wasn't juicy/fatty enough. It was smoked that the outside was dry and inside was a bit moist. it wasn't bad cuz there was a nice tomato salsa on top but it just wasn't to my standards.I love the healthy variety that they have for the base and sides. and honestly the Patio with the lights on at night makes a cute date night spot! their drink selection will quench every picky person from tea to beer!

Very tasty, healthy, home style food at a very reasonable price. I like the concept of choosing a protein (My favourite is the turkey meatballs) a base such as salad or potatoes, and then a choice of two sides. I had a local beer and was told they'd soon have a selection of Beau's bottles. Highly recommend! More...

So glad I had a chance to try out this new place on my long weekend trip up from Brooklyn. Really healthy, hearty, and delicious food. The concept was really great, walk up and pick a protein, side, and base that sounds good to you, and 5 mins later a big plate of awesomeness shows up. I went for the lentil protein, smashed potatoes, and slaw, and was glad I did!! Will definitely be stopping by any time I'm in Toronto. More...

This is a new spot for healthy, hearty, farm-to-table kind of the food.  All the ingredients are sourced within 100km of Toronto.  You can create a classic FARMR plate for $12.99 (one protein base, one base, and two sides).  They also have seasonal dishes that is not on the menu.  Roasted cauliflower salad tastes so amazing especially with shaved pear in it.  The portion is BIG!There are a lot of similar spots opening up in downtown recent years but this is by far the least pretentious place.  And their food actually tastes delicious and homey!Love love this place!  Would definitely come back!

Our corporate clients love the variety of meats and sides and the best part is there is something for everyone with our gluten friendly, dairy free and vegan options.

When our customers get excited about how healthy food can taste this good.
