We hiked down the Ravine trail to The Brickworks and rewarded ourselves with a fabulous lunch at the Café Belong patio.
Our lunch included the St. Lawrence Salad, the Smoked Trout Salad and the Deep Fried Chips. The dishes were very fresh and tasty. Service was exceptional and friendly. Sad that the government will be shutting down the patios tomorrow. They follow all the health and safety guidelines.

One of my favourites in the city. Excellent location, service, and food. While it’s slightly pricier, the quality of food is very well worth it.

Really enjoyed the brunch, however the pressure in regards to the sitting time made my group feel unwelcome by the male senior staff member whereas our waitress was incredibly welcoming and awesome. I would suggest less comments regarding sitting time the multiple reminders were unnecessary as we left before the 1.5 hour time. Parking is also a nightmare so beware

our visit was occasioned by my friend's birthday, on which we decided to hike the brickworks; the lunch prior to that hike was to be my surprise birthday lunch for her.
we ordered the bricklayer's board and were not disappointed! since my friend ate very little i enjoyed the lion's share of what was served - and am quite happy that i was able to enjoy this delicious spread of meats, cheeses, nuts, fruit and preserves with bread alongside. it was a busy sunday and everyone had to eat outdoors but the ambience and environment was still very agreeable. next time...the full english breakfast! dare to dream!

Service and food were amazing as always! However, weather was pretty chilly and windy - would have been nice to have cushions on metal seats outdoors and patio heaters. Otherwise, brunch was fantastic!

I love this restaurant. Ingredients are all carefully chosen by the owner from farmers in the area that he knows personally. The dishes are composed with very fine, seasonal ingredients and innovative flavor combinations. Everything bursts with flavor. You can really taste the quality. Fine dining thats not obnoxious or stuffy. Very friendly staff.

Heated table stands keep it cozy while dining outdoors. Exceptional hygene practices for safety. Highly recommend.

Brad Long, head chef and owner has cooked for some of the most discerning diners from everyday foodies like me to Toronto's pro sports legends and more. Flavour, nutrition and love go into every dish!

Honestly we made the reservation and then looked at the menu - which seemed disappointing - but what wasn’t shown were the breakfast options including steak and eggs and pumpkin pancakes to die for!!! Absolutely delicious and the service was friendly and accommodating. We were very happily surprised!!

It was a beautiful day in the beginning of fall, so the place was magical with all the colours and the patio was great in the middle of all that. The server was knowledgeable, helpful and fast. Although a many people had booked tables, we never felt rushed but could finish the meal in our own time. It was my friend's first visit and she was overwhelmed with the whole whole area and we both appreciated the restaurant.

Cafe Belong has done an outstanding job adjusting to our new COVID19 reality. Protocols are strictly followed by staff and guests are safely distanced on the patio. The food was, as always, delicious and featured in-season ingredients that were highlighted in new and interesting ways. Absolutely amazing.

We sat on their nice patio where they have huge umbrellas, but no heaters. Super nice servers. The food was a bit too salty tho. Will give them another shot.

We had a lovely dinner, very good service and felt very safe. It’s the perfect patio for these pandemic times. We had the buttermilk fried chicken and it was a satisfying meal. That dish was quite sugar forward, corn-nectarine puree, maple glaze, sweet brown-buttered cornbread (it was delish but almost felt like dessert) but it balanced with the saltiness of the chicken. For dessert, the sticky toffee pudding was outstanding, the best I’ve had! Finally, a sticky toffee pudding that isn’t make-your-teeth-fall-out too sweet, it was perfectly balanced and the plums were a nice touch.

Everything was amazing except the pate. I can still taste it in my mouth this morning 🤢 we absolutely love pate, but this one just wasn’t quite right. had We known, I would’ve asked for a substitution.

Other than that, everything else on the plate was very intriguing and delicious. Will definitely come back!

It was a very disappointing experience. We were going to be at Brickworks for the afternoon and thought a visit to the Cafe would be a nice end to our trip. When booking it online, it asked for credit card details and said a fixed charge of $20/head would apply when reserving and that this would get adjusted into our final bill. As a result, we ended up ordering things which we didn’t really want so that we crossed the amount we presumed would be a minimum charge. Little did we know that the charge was just a hold and wasn’t necessarily what we had to pay. There was no mention of this either online our by our server/host.

On top of that, the price we paid for the amount and quality of food was pitiful. Was cheese board with only 3 types of cheese, which were barely enough to cover a slice of toast. What a joke!!!

Would never recommend this place to anyone
