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

In Season and on the Menu: Cherries, from backyard trees to pies in the sky

While Ontario has multiple varieties of deep, sangria coloured sweet cherries that are perfectly plump to enjoy raw, the province’s principle tart cherry, the Montmorency, he are better suited for cooking, unless you’re a fan of the mouth puckering, slightly bitter taste, like my dad (hence the 5-in-1 tree).
