Bannock is cool, confident and unapologetically Canadian. Serving the best in Canadian comfort food, Bannock is part grab & go counter, part coffee shop, and part dine-in restaurant. Centrally located at the corner of Queen and Bay in the Hudson’s Bay flagship store, Bannock offers a warm and inviting space for all-day dining and weekend brunch.

Bannock's honest approach to food is rooted in familiar, wholesome ingredients that are reflective of Canada's rich regional and cultural diversity. Dynamic and playful dishes like the decadent Duck Poutine Pizza and the iconic Arcadian Court Chicken Pot Pie are rounded out by a variety of other classic comfort dishes. The cocktail list is fun and cheeky, while the approachable wine and beer list have a clear Canadian focus.

One of our favourite spots in Toronto. Excellent food, impeccable service - friendly, charming, comfortable, engaging. The combination brings us back again and again!

This was a great place! The "bannodict" was delicious and unique, and our server Claire was lovely.

I used to love the comfort food at Bannock and often came for dinner before the opera. The menu now has fewer options that are of interest, and little that seemed a healthy choice. My friend, who always ordered the mac and cheese, was very disappointed. It was tasteless and had so much cheese that it became nauseating. My gnocchi was quite a small portion, and sitting in a pool of oil. I miss the old menu and hope that this encourages management to reconsider their offerings.

The noise level made conversation impossible. Our orders were not processed accurately and there was no attempt of compensation. The server was inattentive. Overall a truly substandard experience. Having dined here before a few years ago I was deeply disappointed and will not be back. I would deter others from going here as well.

Bannock is very handy to the Opera, and the food is delicious, and service quick for finer dining. We go a number of times a season, and appreciate the well prepared food with a "Canadiana" twist. My gnocci this time were absolutely delicious. My companions duck poutine pizza suited his "twenty-something" appetite...not for the dieting crowd. Pizza of the day was "pleasant"...we've had more exciting things from the menu. Tuesday tall cans are a deal, which was appreciated by all.

We ordered the Margherita pizza and the Kale Caesar Salad.
I would say the pizza was above average in flavour and the salad below average.
The server was attentive and professional and advised us of the drink specials we took advantage of.
Only 1 Unisex washroom out of 3 working. Not good and my wife had to wait about 10 minutes.

Pretty good comfort food. However one of the dishes at the table was over salted (shrimp fish cake ) .. the Beer battered fish and chips was excellent .. as was my friends burger

Went with a friend to Bannock for Sunday brunch....have been there previously but never before for Sunday brunch. It is fabulous!

$7 peach/mango or blueberry/pomegrante mimosa's (can also get them virgin if you wish).

The 'Eggs Bannock' is spectacular!!! As is my always favourite, free range turkey burger.

The only thing that surpasses the food is the service. Special thanks to Scout for making this visit so special and to the always charming Nick, our server.

Bannock was the best meal we had during our 5-day stay in Toronto. Our server was so kind and accommodating, and made great menu recommendations. We appreciated the amount of vegetarian options on the menu.

As usual, the staff were friendly, informative and accommodating. We arrived late for our reservation due to a transit issue and had tickets to get to a performance. The server spoke with the chef to get our order placed as quickly as possible. At no time did we feel rushed and yet the service was prompt. Drinks and dessert were also made available in a timely fashion. As always, the food was fresh, hot and delicious.

The place was empty , but we were sat directly beside hostess area and the door , I was not happy being next to the noisey kitchen , feeling the draft from the door and people constantly circling our table, it REALLY ruined th experience for me. The service was okay, not anything outstanding or even common small talk, the server seemed like she didn’t want to be there. The food was okay, but a bit on the bland side , and felt like it needed something more to it, neither of us finished our plates, we weren’t asked if it was any good but if we’d like to have dessert which I found odd. All in all I was very disappointed in the experience.

My mom and I both had the smoked haddock special. I really loved it, finding it to be perfectly seasoned, however, my mother, a Brit, said the haddock was not smoked properly at all.
She said they did not fully smoke it, which should yellow the flesh, but instead used a smoking gun to only smoke the outer edge.
