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

A five-year reunion with Elle Cuisine

A five-year reunion with Elle Cuisine

Way back in 2011 we fell hard for Elle Cuisine at the Toronto Underground Market (R.I.P), then really hard after chef Lauren Mozer catered an intimate dinner for us. Back then she took us through a decadent seven-course tasting menu, wowing us with her French-influenced dishes. So when the opportunity arose to have her cater another dinner for us five years later, we couldn’t say no.
