Today is my sister's birthday so I took her out for lunch and her pick was Hope Street Cafe - in the Forest Hill Village in Toronto. This is one of our favourite spots for a quick bite as it is only five minutes from home. The Forest Hill Village is a great place for dinner - with ice cream shops for dessert! Hope Street Cafe is a great restaurant, for both lunch and dinner. They have an outdoor patio which is perfect for relaxed outdoor lunches, and the inside is small but comfy, with tablecloths - a great plus! The food is delicious, there is really nothing on the menu that I haven't liked. The appetizers are large - so I would recommend sharing them, and you can get their feature salads are large enough to be an entree.

Here are some favourites which you should be sure to order!

Avocado Bruschetta: topped with goat cheese (on the dinner menu)
Greek Salad: Crisp Romaine Hearts, Cucumber
Grape Tomatoes Bermuda onion, bell peppers, olives, feta cheese with balsamic a vinaigrette
Chicken & Avocado Salad: baby greens, grilled chicken, avocado, cucumber, roasted red peppers
grape tomatoes, Bermuda onions with a balsamic vinaigrette
Steak Fajitas: served in a sizzling skillet with flour tortillas, guacamole, salsa, sour cream, grated cheese, tomato, lettuce (on the dinner menu)
Baked Penne: chicken, mozzarella, cheddar, parmesan, and asiago in a garlic cream sauce (on the dinner menu)
Tuna Melt: albacore tuna, cheddar, lettuce, tomato served on ciabatta (on the lunch menu)
