O&B Canteen is a bright and casual restaurant and Grab & Go counter located in the heart of Toronto’s Entertainment District at the TIFF Bell Lightbox.

Canteen’s all-day menu draws inspiration from simple recipes using fresh ingredients. Chef-prepared offerings range from housemade soups and sandwiches to hearty salads and oven-baked pizzas. Throughout the day, Canteen’s grab & go counter serves up freshly baked goods and light bites

Canteen’s bright, open space features modern decor with a casual feel – the perfect setting to enjoy fresh and innovative fare. Guests can also people-watch from Canteen’s large streetside patio during the summer months. Canteen’s marketplace atmosphere, together with quick, cheerful service, makes it the perfect destination, morning, noon and night.

Meh, I had a gift card so I'm glad I didn't pay for the meal itself, the ham on the breakfast items has got to go, give me real bacon or peameal.

This our pre-or post-TIFF Bell Lightbox movie spot. The food is OK, we have never been disappointed in any case. Service is always great.

As usual, my wife and I were delighted with the friendly atmosphere, the reliably well-prepared and well-presented menu, and the attentive and capable service. We were "showing off" one of our favourite venues for an evening out (dinner and a film at the O&B Canteen and the TIFF Bell Lightbox) to our son, who was visiting from California. We were not disappointed, and he was pleased and impressed!

Heard the brunch was great. For dinner there wasn't a menu option that I particularly wanted but that's more personal than restaurant oriented. Had a cocktail and the service was good.
