Toronto’s Best Sandwiches: The Coffee Mill’s Reuben

Something of a hidden gem, The Coffee Mill in Yorkville is the quintessential European coffee house. Established way back in ’63, the eatery has just rung in its 50th year — a rather startling figure in any industry, let alone the food biz. Diners tuck into continental favourites including goulash and quiche Lorraine while strains of Beethoven and the like play overhead.
Their Reuben is a take on the tried and true classic ($9.95). Starring smoked meat (as opposed to corned beef), sauerkraut and melted Swiss cheese, the goods are slathered with yellow mustard, loaded between slices of rye bread, grilled and served with panache.
Paired with a Viennese-style coffee topped with a lick of whipped cream, it’s not hard to imagine you’re smack dab in the centre of Europe.
