Welcome to By The Way

Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate our recent renovations at our Open House on Sunday the 22nd. It was a great success with friends, Neighbours, and regulars. Check out our gallery to view our latest images!

By The Way (BTW) offers contemporary Mediterranean and Middle Eastern fare in the heart of downtown Toronto’s Annex neighborhood. Since 1979, BTW has continued to thrive as a unique staple at the corner of Bloor Street and Brunswick Avenue. A familiar destination for both locals and out-of-towners, BTW has grown and evolved with Canada’s most cosmopolitan city, becoming a well known landmark in one of Toronto’s most highly regarded and quaint neighborhoods. In addition to the independently focused shops that surround it, BTW is within walking distance of the historic University of Toronto, Royal Ontario Museum, Royal Conservatory’s Koerner Hall, Tarragon Theater, Bloor Hot Docs Cinema, and the upscale Yorkville shopping district.

Whether it’s Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, or Weekend Brunch, BTW is a casual fine dining eatery that creates dishes that are as exquisite as they are healthy. Daily specials are carefully created, inspired by fresh seasonal ingredients and well blended spices. In addition to world renowned ales and lagers, BTW’s vast wine menu features a selection of hand-picked house wines and vintages to accompany your meal. We welcome you to experience our delightful, cozy ambiance, be it inside the restaurant itself or under the warmly lit canopy of our fantastic corner patio.
