Home » Food » Restaurant Review: Rose and Sons

Thanks to Twitter and tweets that I was reading from @Foodie411….I knew I had to go to Rose and Sons one day soon. Seeing as I have some time on my hands, I round up two friends and we met for lunch at 12:30 p.m.

The first thing you should know about this restaurant is that it’s not easy to spot from the street. So here’s a photo to help you find it.

178 Dupont. Repeat after me..178 Dupont

The next thing you should know is that it’s POPULAR and for good reason. The space is small but I love how it’s designed so you don’t feel like you are 2 inches away from the next table. Plus I love that there are a few bar stools so if you are on your own you can just grab a quick bite and be entertained by the kitchen staff. (who are all awesome by the way – the entire team, actually).

12:30 p.m on a Tuesday


Now for the food. It was mighty tough what to order but we tried 4 items and each item was well executed, flavorful, moist and delicious. I was super impressed by the bread (supplied by Thuet) and the small details (great condiments).

Patty Melt Burger – Grilled Cheese, Fried Onions, FF, chili may0 ($15). Everyone loved this.

There. Are. No. Words.

Chicken Souvlaki – flatbread, tzatziki, greek salad ($12). The tzatiki rocked.

Super Tasty

Pork Fried Rice – peanuts, china town sauce, egg, ginger ($12). Oh so flavorful!!

The peanuts are sourced from PERTH!! Not your average peanuts.

Club-bacon, turkey, herb mayo, brie, pickles, ff ($13). What a sammie!!

Yum. Me.


I now need to return to check out their breakfast menu and their dinner menu! This restaurant has a menu that really appeals to me….unique, flavorful and well executed. A winning combo for a restaurant. Not to mention, a super nice owner (Anthony Rose) ¬†and a great waiter (David) too.


Rose and Sons 178 Dupont Street Toronto 647 748 3287

    O.k, I just went here with my mom. She LOVED it. That is probably because she got the patty melt. Great place, but is so tiny. Will for sure make a reservation on the website and go for dinner. Thanks for the review. Keep letting us know about these little gems.
