“Breakfast upstairs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Flo's is a very nice diner, but you have to know where it is. You need to take an elevator or find the stairway up to the second level. Inside, you are carried back to the Fifties, with posters, photos, and artifacts of that era, including a worn-out jukebox and an old circular cigarette machine.

I arrived for a late breakfast, was warmly greeted and offered a seat wherever I pleased. I was triple-teamed by three different servers, all friendly and courteous, but it was hard to say who in particular took care of me. I had eggs, homefries, and toast, all very tasty. Since I arrived just at the magic hour of 11 o'clock in the morning, the Province of Ontario deemed that I could also have a nice draught beer with my breakfast.

For a quiet late morning, I was surprised how long my food took to come out, but it was worth the wait. Flo's is a fun place with good food worth searching out.

I elected to eat inside, but there is also a a open veranda looking out upon the street scene below.

“Big brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

If you're lucky enough to get a table outside it's a great little place to have brunch on a warm day. Lots of food!

“Diner food in Yorkville”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

Had a breakfast here that was nothing special. Not the sort of place one would expect in such an upscale area, this is truck stop fare and decidedly average truck stop fare at that.

“Great breakfast spot in Yorkville”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

Quickly seated on patio and a nice alternative to an overpriced breakfast in Yorkville. Clean restaurant with a nice breakfast menu. Seats on the patio overlook Yorkville Ave.

“A very kewl. older diner with great food choices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

This place is a blast from the past with good food, good service and some very nice food choices for a small "joint". The lamb burger with three mushroom topping was wonderful! They also did fish and chips, meatloaf and of course the reg. diner fare! They even have a nice second story patio!
