The Lakeview Restaurant is a piece of Toronto history. Open since the 1930s and the backdrop for some feature films, it closed in 2008, but not for long. When reopened, it dropped part of the original name but kept enough charm to woo back the original patrons. The black and white photographs on the website prove that it is not too modern, yet it chooses an IPod over the more classic Jukebox. The restaurant is open 24 hours, and it has an extensive menu for you and your friends with all of their dietary preferences. There are many versions of poutine (the Canadian speciality of cheese curds, gravy and fries), including a breakfast version that throws in some maple sausage and a sunny side up egg. Burgers, salads, sandwiches and classic desserts round out the menu for a true Betty and Veronica experience.
- Late Night: "Don't expect to fly in the door at 3am to get your Eggs Benny fix. There may be a little bit of a wait, as this place is especially popular during the witching hours."
- Best for Late Night Because: From the corn flaked burger to pulled pork poutine, this extensive menu may feel like heavy reading after midnight.
