      Every time I eat in Toronto it is at the airport, or at the Best Western in nearby Mississauga where Air Canada puts me up for the night because of logisticial issues between the connecting flight and passing through customs. I've connected four times in Pearson in the past two years, and three times I've spent the night at the Best Western.

        When I last attended an event at the convention center, the stree vendors served good roadfood. A very good, huge hotdog and over a pound of fresh French fries cost only $4 Canadian. More food than I could eat.

        It has been a few years, so I bet the price is up to $5.

            There are now about 10 California Sandwiches outlets in Greater Toronto. The closest to Bloor/Yonge is the original location on Claremont Street: http://foodpages.ca/23230?showmap=1&toz=

              I'm sure I'm too late... it's more than a month later.. but a good source for food in Toronto is Toronto Life Magazine.

                  That is also the best one.
                  Call ahead if you can. Certainly worth the effort in trying it.

                    If you like carribean food you have to try the Real jerk. I make a point of going there everytime I am in Toronto.

                      For whatever reason the yuppie name of California Sandwiches has always put me off. San Francesco's predated the California Sandwiches chain by decades and has its own cult following.
