I’ve long been a lover of Terroni, at 729 Queen Street West in Queen West Village between Bathurst and Trinity Bellwoods Park. I’ve been dining here for years, ever since I moved into my cool loft in The Banquet Hall on Claremont back in the late 1990s. The Banquet Hall was one of the conversions we sold for LA Developments. In the original sales programme the 8 lofts, ranging from 1200 to 2100 square feet, could be purchased for $220,000 to $350,000. The last sale was for around $1million.
Yes, times are a-changing, which is one reason I find so much comfort returning to Terroni, where they still serve great food using quality ingredients and one of the city’s best lattes.
I typically find respite at Terroni’s on a lazy rainy afternoon where I can dine while reading the latest issue of Elle Decor, and savour a smoked salmon Panini with mascarpone cheese cheese, capers and onions. This time it was served with some marinated olives and hot pepper, plus some pickled zucchini. Yum!

Terroni is one of a host of amazing cafes and shops in Queen West Village. It’s truly one of the premier destinations for a hip urbane life. Could you imagine strolling for a bite from your very cool loft?
