Serving seasonal, locally sourced, contemporary Canadian foods with a fun twist, The Green Wood should be a must on everyone’s Ontario to-do list. Choose from a variety of delicious breakfast foods and pair it with their one-of-a-kind cocktails, or make a dinner reservation to get a taste of their burgers, piled-high with ingredients that will put the palette to the test. In the summer months, cool down on the outdoor patio with a refreshing glass of imported wine and a local, cold lager or cider. All year round wake up to the salmon rosti or the cornflake crusted french toast, two of the house favorites. The Green Wood’s chic and leisurely atmosphere, accentuated by its white and pink tiles, bright, airy spaces, and live-plant walls, creates a culinary experience that goes beyond just taste.
As a small business, The Green Wood prides itself in its menu creation – every item is either made from scratch in-house (including all breads and sauces) or purchased from local and sustainable purveyors. Its innovative menu is crafted with care by Elisa Corrigan, an esteemed chef and owner of the ping pong bar (yep, you read that right!) on King St. West, a few steps down from The Green Wood’s new location. The Green Wood also serves vegetarian and vegan options upon request.
The Green Wood’s East location, located in Leslieville, serves brunch only on Monday and Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and brunch and dinner from Wednesday through Sunday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. The Green Wood East does not accept brunch reservations. The Green Wood’s King West location is temporarily closed. To stay up-to-date on its reopening or make dinner reservations at the Leslieville location, visit The Green Wood’s website.
