The Lakeview Restaurant is one of Toronto’s most popular late-night spots, and of all the comfort foods on the menu — from 24-hour breakfast like eggs in a basket ($10) to classic diner fare like mac ‘n’ cheese ($12) — it’s probably the fresh-baked apple pie ($5.50) that is most satisfying at 3 a.m.

Served warm, the buttery, flaky crust barely holds on to the giant stack of cinnamon-laced apple layers. It’s finished with a dollop of whipped cream and your choice of ice cream.

Or, just get a milkshake ($5.25) with some pie added to it for $2.50 extra.

The Lakeview Restaurant, 1132 Dundas St. W., 416-850-8886

Restaurant Review: Chef Steve Gonzalez is back with his gigantic new King West eatery

Cherry-picking the menu works really well. Some of the fusion items, where East meets Latin, are really fun. Chef’s suite of ceviches are superbly entertaining: we’re captivated by the variegated flavours of tiraditos, raw tuna napped in passion fruit and lulo sauce, with black and white sesame seeds, chili-studded purée of butternut squash and baby greens.

Post-ROM sips at Museum Tavern

Blink and you’ll miss Museum Tavern. Squirreled upstairs and across the street from the Royal Ontario Museum sits the suitably named brasserie. The charming space has been satiating museum goers since it opened back in 2012.
