My Toronto "haunt" has to be the Rose & Crown just north of Yonge & Eglinton.
I've been going there for about 7 years. The kitchen is pretty good (it used to be outstanding), the service is alright (it used to be terrific) and the atmosphere is decent (...unchanged).
I love the pad thai there. Authentic or not, it tastes great. Thursday nights: $6.99. Sweet.
A friend pointed out to me that when he checked out the website, he noticed they have a couple of webcams. There's one at the bar (where I never hang out) and one near the "rear", where I can sometimes be found having sunday brunch or thursday pad thai.
Check it out sometime, and I'll try to remember to wave.
