As someone who is a new Canadian, I get asked a lot about what is the biggest difference between my experiences from the UK and Canada. I alway say the same, a sense of community.
When we opened, our neighbourhood made a concerted effort to make sure they supported us by not just coming in once a week but sometimes twice or even three times.
This is why The Gem of the Lakeshore means so much to us !! Thank you all for your vote and for all your support over the past 5 years.
We will proudly continue to support “Local”… Local produce, Local hockey team, Local arts (Lakeshore Arts!), Local schools and many more!Read More

Over the past 1.5 years we have had many great moments at our Bloor Street location. Many of you have shared birthdays, pre-wedding parties and christenings. Unfortunately those moments were not enough for us to sustain our business there. Therefore with immediate effect, we have decided to close our location at Bloor and Dundas.
If you have a future reservation, you will be contacted and offered a table at our Lakeshore location.
We want to say thank you to all our customers that supported us at Bloor, we truly do appreciate you're support and love.
Chris, Siobhán and Wayne
