*CLOSED*After seeing construction in the retail space at the corner of Lynn Williams St and Pirandello St for quite some time, it was great to finally see Day & Night Cafe Lounge open for business a few weeks ago.
We had the opportunity to visit the newly opened Liberty Village business very recently and were impressed with what we discovered.
The space is inviting and bright – benefiting from the well-lit corner and residential and park views. There are a few seating options but our favourite was the zebra-striped lounge with banquet seating, solid wood block tables, black lace chandelier and exposed duct work. The lounge has astonishing clear views of tree-lined Pirandello. It really does have a private and relaxing feel to it.
A defined section at the back of the space has a bright coffee bar feel with bar stool seating and views of the neighbourhood. The third space is an open-concept section with contemporary furniture, pendant lighting and other designer touches. It feels like many of the lofts we sell around the neighbourhood.
Day & Night Cafe Lounge executes its coffee well. They serve Te Aro Artisan coffee from one of Toronto’s best coffee roasters and offer a good selection of espresso-based drinks and accompanying baked goods.
Paninis include grilled chicken ($10), ham and brie ($10), grilled shrimp ($12), fried Tilapia ($12) and scrambled tofu ($8).
Salads include the house green salad ($8), watermelon prawn salad ($10) and baked brie salad ($10).
From the tapas menu, there are a variety of small plates that include pan seared tofu ($10), cilantro chili spiced wings ($12), Szechuan sliders ($12), crab cakes ($14) and shrimp tempura ($14).
For dessert, they offer a housemade New York style cheesecake ($5).
Day & Night Cafe Lounge is licensed to sell alcohol and offer 3 local beers on tap (Flying Monkeys, Creemore Springs and Steam Whistle), a small wine list and mixed drinks.
