Peter Pan Bistro


373 Queen Street West, Toronto

Cost: $10 per entree


A landmark on Queen St. West since 1921 (read the history here), Peter Pan Bistro has always been a prime lunch time spot, perhaps for it’s ambiance (spectacular tin ceiling) or delicious lunch dishes for under $10.

Whatever the case, how befitting it was to have a baby-shower gathering at a venue named Peter Pan.

I was more interested in the dessert menu than anything else that day.

Mmm…..Death by chocolate sounded like the way to go!

Very rich, very deadly. (I think I passed out about 1/2 an hour after eating this. :))

Everyone else’s dishes looked fantastic (and from what I heard, tasted just as good!)

You can see the expectant Mom’s beautiful polka-dotted belly in the background of this shot, nicely contrasted by the pretty almond cheesecake and wildberry tea. Here’s a close-up of the almond cheesecake.

Lemon tart.

Warm beet salad, honey roasted pears, walnuts, goat cheese on mixed greens $9 – photo credit: Jen D.

Daily special – Omlette – photo credit: Jen D.

“Bistro Salad”, olive oil & rosemary cake, arugula, proscuitto & tomato, finished w/ a two minute egg, truffle oil and shaved parmagiano $10 – photo credit: Jen D.

With new condos springing up everywhere, Peter Pan Bistro, now in it’s 88th year at the corner of Peter and Queen, is practically a historic site, so go now! Go and enjoy it.

  2. I thoroughly enjoy the complimentary bread that comes at P.P.’s – both times I have been it was a dense cheddar and chive loaf.. not sure if it’s different every time.

    I believe the mark of a good restaurant is definitely homemade bread.

  4. Again, I should have read this AFTER I had lunch, I am so much hungrier now. I remember having a rabbit dish here once that was so delicious I can no longer think of them as cute, little creatures but scrumptious meals. I have since refrained from thinking about rabbits in general as my feelings are torn.
