Her Father's Cider Bar + Kitchen
Located in the heart of downtown Toronto in the historic Harbord Village, Her Father's Cider Bar + Kitchen offers a selection of 100+ ciders from Ontario and the world, making it Toronto's premier destination for cider lovers! Dinner and brunch menus offer refined, local, and seasonal selections drawing from Ontario's rich culinary traditions.
Her Father's Cider Bar + Kitchen is a great gastropub, with a very homey feel and comfort food that melds traditional dishes with something extra, making them so delicious! My partner and I had a great time, and the drinks are really great too, with lots of variety. The staff is attentive and nice. They changed our seats to a more comfortable spot, even without us asking. Overall a great experience, and would highly recommend to others.
Lovely as always. One of my favorite places to go with friends.
I asked a lot of picky questions & our server did a great job answering.
I ordered scrambled eggs with cheese, which was not quite on the menu & it was delicious. My kids even liked it as it was so rich & fluffy.
The in-house tomato sauce was amazing.
The whole family enjoyed the food. We don’t often revisit places but we will be back for the excellent food.
My favourite favourite FAVOURITE place.
The staff the food the selection of ciders.
Great patio. Food was very small portions and mediocre. Would not go back.
My neighbourhood bar! Everything is reasonably priced and the staff are lovely.
I have been to Her Father's Cider Bar previously but this time took a friend who hadn't been before. The food was excellent, presentation superb. My asparagus risotto was absolutely mouth-watering. The wait staff were very welcoming and treated us like royalty. My friend will certainly return, as well I. Thank you.
Tons of cider. Would have been helpful to have descriptions for all the ciders on tap. Felt bad asking the waiter to describe every one of them; but very thankful he did.
We enjoyed a Friday evening meal with friends. It was a chill, relaxed vibe and I enjoyed the cider flights to try as well as the extensive selection of ciders from around the world. We shared 3 different snacks which were plenty and very tasty. I would recommend for a casual but unique dining experience for cider lovers. They had other options for beverages too.
Superior welcome & service
Excellent and creative food from the kitchen to pair with some delightful hard ciders
Fortunate to have discovered during our recent trip to Toronto and can highly recommend Her Father's Cider Bar & Kitchen to others whether Toronto is your home or like us were fortunate to visit
I brought my partner here for his birthday and it was the perfect setting! We only ordered appetizers, dessert, and cider (the variety of ciders is really astounding and the flight of three 3oz ciders for $9.99 is worth it!), and the portion sizes were ideal. The service was prompt and welcoming, and my partner was given complimentary dessert!
Lots of new ciders on the rotating tap. Friendly and knowledgable staff and great service. It's why we keep going back.
Cozy, comfortable ambience. Great selection of tasty ciders. Waitress was helpful in our selection of trial tastes.
Lamb sliders were fantastic! And the chickpea frites was a pleasant surprise! Definitely will come back to try more of the ciders and menu!!👍
I wouldn't go here for dinner again. However, i will def go back for the plethora of Ciders they have. Some of there drinks were fantastic and our server seemed pretty knowledgeable. I highly recommend ordering a flight and ask them to get their favs.
Loved it! The chickpea fries and dips were amazing and of course, the cider :)
Amazing cider choice even my favourite Normandie. Most food was great . But a couple were not perfect. I would definitely return
Delicious variety of ciders with good value food. Would definitely recommend for cider fans!
Excellent food and service, ambience was great as well.
Food was delicious (get the Brussels sprouts!) and service was so warm and friendly!
A great experience. Food was delicious and of course, cider offerings amazing. Patio was perfect and service was excellent.
Food, cider and service was excellent
Fun evening with friends - we shared some flights and appetizers, and our server was great at describing all the different ciders. Will definitely go back.
This is a quaint and cozy small place with a whopping selection of tasty ciders on tap. We loved the food, the ciders and the service. Everything was great! Will come again soon and definitely recommend to friends!
Loved this cozy, little spot! The staff couldn’t have been better w answering questions and giving us time to visit have a tasting flight and then to have a delish dinner. I’m just in town for a few days but I want to come back. I wish this place was in my town. So fun and bonus was it was quiet and easy to talk, too.
Had been wanting to try this restaurant for awhile and was not disappointed! Consistently welcoming and approachable service from all staff (bar, servers, managers, runners) and everyone seemed to be well educated on their offerings.
Cider menu was varied and tasty. Short rib hash for brunch was satisfying but missing ‘something’, the in-house sauces definitely helped and were delicious.
Looking forward to another visit. Thanks for the great experience!
All staff members were very knowledgeable about the ciders. We ordered a bunch of the snack plates so we could try as much food as possible; the Brussels sprouts were out of this world. Small restaurant; wouldn’t recommend for a group but was perfect for our party of 2.
Excellent food, drinks, and service.
Amazing selection of ciders, comfortable environment, and great knowledgable staff
Her Father's Cider Bar + Kitchen is the perfect place to enjoy a nice dinner and socialize with friends. There are so many options when it comes to delicious drinks but I found there was tons of value in the selection of food with varying prices! Definitely a must-visit in Toronto!
I've been here a few times, as a friends place is conveniently close. It's been a solid 7/10 consistently. My last experience was mediocre. Had a few flights of tap ciders, tried 8 in total; aside from one which was acceptable(not AMAZING or Great, just acceptable), the rest were again, mediocre. Service was good, but nothing to write home about; server was knowledgable, but had a few miss steps in our order, and the place was not very busy, by all appearances. Food..... err.... Maybe it was an off night for the chef. Maybe the end of season selection at the markets was miniscule. Maybe the owners haven't sampled their plates lately. The food was again, mediocre, timing to table was strange(partner got all three selections at once, my single main came 30 minutes later). All plates went back half finished, despite that we'd both arrived famished.
Averaging this 4/10 experience with a few previous 7/10's, I'll give HFCB a solid 6/10, or 3/5 stars at this time.
HFCB has potential to do very well. I hope in the future they trim off the bulk of their offerings, and focus on a smaller selection of well planned and well executed products.
Hi PatrickT, Thanks for your continued patronage. We appreciate your feedback. Just so our Chef and Kitchen team can work on your remarks, do you remember what you ordered? We would love an opportunity for you to come and receive the 5 Star service and experience we strive to deliver. Have a great day. Regards, Tim McLean GM
Wonderful! We’ll be back
Great variety on their brunch menu! Have been twice now and food was delicious, service staff were super chill - but also attentive, and kind. I like the cider flights!
The food was delicious, and the cider was unique (and lovely!). I would recommend this place to anyone!
It was great!
Great service as always - happy that I got to go back and have the chance to try their new menu. Cider flights are amazing.
Interesting food, nice attention and knowledgeable staff. The ciders are very different and it’s a great concept. We had a table in the window which was cold but would be lovely in summer
We've been several times to Her Father's and we always have a great time! Our server was very helpful with narrowing down a bottle for us (which was great!) and the food was fabulous, as always.
One of our favourite places to visit. Personable and knowledgeable service. Thoughtful food options and good overall vibe.
Definitely not a place if you're in a hurry. This restaurant is ideal for an evening with friends.
