Restaurant run by Centennial College. Served by students and they did very well trying to serve and learn at the same time. Food varity was good, all cooked from scratch by students as well and tasted good. Price very reasonable for weekend brunch. Recommend.

Valentine’s Day menu had a variety of enticing choices. Food was creatively plated. Inspired use of local and seasonal ingredients. Great value. Grilled rack of lamb was cooked to perfection as was the seared sea bream. Gnocchi was a bit doughy. Before dinner drinks came with the main course. Otherwise, exceptional experience. Have been here for weekday lunch, weekend brunch and other special functions. Will definitely keep coming back.

Amazing Valentine dinner with local ingredients, rack of lamb and cheesecake. Merlot wine was good, and tables were beautifully decorated.

Great selection of salads and entrees, healthy and tasty. The thin crust mushroom pizza was delicious and almost as good as one we enjoyed in Rome, Italy.

We definitely plan on making The Local a regular favourite.

Food is amazing value and well executed by staff and students. The chocolates were a great hit at our table but wished small tongs were available to make it sanitary. Servers could not tell me if there was coconut used in making of the chocolate and had to ask three servers to find out before we got an affirmative answer.
Our student server was very polite and eager. Though too many students often standing around chitchatting rather than watching patrons and being more attentive.
Just wish ingredients list is detailed in front of each dish to assist with food restrictions. Had asked if lamb stew was spicy or had any chili. The answer was no but when one of my guest had a slight reaction, found out that when I asked again for detailed list of spices, another student said small amount cayenne pepper was used.
Always glad to support local businesses and students and highly recommend this place to all my friends and family living across Toronto or visitors.

Great thought goes into the experience which is admirable considering students do most of the heavy lifting.

A decent menu, pleasant and colourful decor in this cozy cafe and restaurant.

I enjoyed it and will go back.

You will want to reserve ahead and if you have allergies please ask well in advance as well.

The vegetables were grilled very nicely and very tasty. All the meats were a bit dry, the steak and chicken lacked seasoning. The lamb was pretty good but seemed a bit out of place.

Services wasn't very good, we weren't attended to when we wanted to get some tea. Also, stood at cashier for 10mins, no one came to help us get the cheque. Had to asked the lady from the cafe outside to look for someone so we can finally pay and leave.

Good selection if food for brunch. Academic centre so service level reflects the learners at their point of development. Food is flavorful but some of the offerings were room temperature so not as enjoyable. Salmon was fantastic, good favour and moist. Sausage rounds great flavour and rapini perfect.

The Local Cafe is a hidden gem. During the past two years, I have been there with friends/family many times and we are very satisfied ( quality foods and very reasonable price). I have been trying many restaurants around the same neighborhood The Local Cafe is my top pick. I am highly recommend this restaurant. Thank you.

Food, value for money can’t be beat. Noise level too loud.
Students are all very personable and clearly trying hard to please but need more supervision from manager to be mindful as to what crosses the line from being attentive to being intrusive. More communication needed amongst servers to coordinate service with tables/customers. Six students came in the span of 10 min to take our dessert plates and spoons away and we had to keep telling each student not to do so as we were not finished yet, thus interrupting our conversation constantly.

The food is excellent and so is the price for the lunch buffet. Service could be better; we were offered to try fresh beet juice without being informed that there is a charge for the same. We notified the manager who kindly reverted the cost for the drink. So next time when something is offered for trial we shall ensure the price for it!

I understand this is student run, but the students really need some training. They stand around and watch you the whole time you are there, always hovering, it makes for a very uncomfortable and awkward experience.

Top quality ingredients. Wonderful Variety of choices for different tastes and food restrictions. Very accessible (though handicap parking is limited)
Decor is very modern yet warm. Love the open kitchen. Would turn TV off though as it just adds more unnecessary noise and visual stimulation in an already busy and noisy space.

As always, the food was fantastic, with a good assortment of choices. The mocktails offered that night were also very good. Tried the peach "mojito" which was very refreshing. The flank steak was excellent (which it always is) and the nice flavours of autumn with the squashes and gourds in various preparations was delightful. Highly recommend.

- the hot water has the taste of detergent
- the food is not good, the carving meat is cold, the pizza is cold, should offer to reheat the pizza
- the food refill is too late and took too long
- I brought the 6yo kids and hardly ate anything but got charged $10 ea. not worth it for family with small kids
- the selection of food is very limited
- should offer some simple food such as pasta
- should have more salad choice.

We were a group of 5. Everyone thought the food was very good. Excellent value for the money. On the down side, we waited too long for our beverages and for used plates to be removed. I'm sure this will improve as the students get more training. I would return and would also recommend to others.
