Food was good but for what we got I'd say a little over-priced. For instance the last salad on the list,which we ordered a large for $17 was 99% arugula, a few pecans (maybe 8) and a few tiny, tiny ramps (maybe 3). That's a little much for a plate full of arugula. You get my drift.

Love this place down at the lovely brickworks! Food is great and changes regularly! It’s my daughters favourite place for Mac and cheese 😃

I love the setting of this restaurant and the food is always delightful. The pulled pork was perfect as were my poached eggs (perfectly cooked egg whites and nicely runny yoke, Mm, hmm, good!). Mimosa with mango juice instead of the traditional orange juice presented a lovely twist. The one thing that was a bit disappointing was the service... On the first beautiful Sunday of the year, our waitress was quite a bit of a sourpuss. Luckily the weather was too nice for us to be bothered by her negative vibes.

The ratio quantity vs price is quite low! Sorry but the Portobello mushroom main course was not a main course! I was starving after that...

While the food was excellent, the service was not great - our server was not attentive...we had to get another waitstaff to top up our coffees and ask about our food order, which was taking a long time. She explained that the kitchen was really busy, which we could appreciate - it would have been nice if our server had at least come by to check on us and advise us about the longer than usual wait.

The food was really good...we would come back, but we wanted to let you know that the overall score would have been higher but the service was not good. Thanks, Laurie

My overall experience at Cafe Belong was great. I took my clients there for a client lunch and it was enjoyed by all. There were many a clean plate when the server took our plates away. The atmosphere was equally enjoyable as we sat on the patio in the sunshine. This was especially appreciated as the server accommodated the last minute request to change our dining from indoors to outdoors. Our server was attentive, polite and prompt. Thank you!

Service and food was great. Only reason for the 4 stars, is the food took a long time to come. I am sure this was because it was a holiday Sunday. We shall be back.

They took reservations for 5 for Sunday brunch- which is basically unheard of in Toronto. The menu was small but interesting our sever had a bit of an edge. Cocktail options were very limited.

The food was great and the place was beautiful, but our service was lacking. One of our waitresses was incredibly rude and I’m not sure if she was mad we stayed so long (we had a large party for a celebration) but she partically ripped the machine out of everyone’s hand when it came time to pay and was very impatient the whole brunch and wanted to rush us along. We all left at least a 15-20% tip despite her behaviour. If you have a nice manned waitress I’d say it’s a great spot, but my family was less than thrilled with the service treatment.

Good brunch this morning. Ordered toast as a side, then ordered jam. Did not think jam should be an extra charge of $2.
Otherwise, good experience.

This is a gem of a place, the food is always out of this world and the service is amazing. They source locally and truly deliver. A must of you are in Toronto. We always go for brunch, but I can only imagine dinners being awesome as well!

Excellent last minute dinner. Always a good bet that there will be something delicious here. We only had charcuterie, soups and salads but wished we had a bigger appetite for the sharing plates. They are always good. It's a little cold down there at the brickworks so wear lots of layers in cold weather. Windows are lovely to look out of but drafty. Great service and great food for casual Friday dinner.
