Is Eggspectation Worth Going To?

The popular breakfast chain Eggspectation has opened their newest location on Carlton Street, just across from the Mattamy Athletic Centre. It’s a pretty big space with a casual open plan layout, combining an eclectic mishmash of design styles ranging from modern industrial elements to mid twentieth century touches, and it doesn’t have the light and airy feeling you’d expect from a breakfast restaurant of this size. Walking past it, it’s hard to tell that it’s even open, since there’s rarely more than a few patrons there at a time. So, is it worth a visit?  The price tags on its […]

Egg Bae: Masters of the Breakfast Sandwich

Looking to channel your inner Harley Quinn with the perfect egg sandwich? There’s no better place to do that than Egg Bae, Kensington’s cute little breakfast sandwich shop. It’s just a short bus ride from the Ryerson campus, and it’s definitely worth the trip. The interior is surprisingly spacious, with a modern design and fun, chicken-themed murals. Egg Bae is a great example of a restaurant that chooses just one thing to focus on, and does that thing extremely well. The menu is short, with a simple offering of five different egg sandwiches, hash browns, and a selection of coffee […]

The Newest Spot for Middle Eastern Takeout on Campus

Dr. Laffa has just recently opened on the corner of Church and Gerrard. It’s a kosher, Middle Eastern style takeout place, and once you get past the extremely unsettling logo design, it’s a pleasant little restaurant with a fairly extensive menu. Prices range from $8 to as much as $25 for their plates, and the portions are sizeable.  You can get a wide variety of salads, dipping plates with hummus or baba ganoush, large plates of meat and sides, and wraps made with pita or laffa.  I tried the chicken shawarma, which is $10.99 for a pita and $13.99 for […]

Escape Rooms Worth a Visit

With the weather outside far from pleasant, it’s good to have some indoor adventures to fall back upon. Escape rooms can be a great way of tackling boredom while bonding with friends and challenging your mind, making them a very fun winter activity.  Located at Yonge and Gould, Roundabout Canada is a very convenient spot for Ryerson students seeking a bit of entertainment. What makes Roundabout stand out the most is their set design. The rooms are big, with multiple sections to unlock and enter into, including secret passages and unexpected challenges. The attention to detail and realistic construction makes […]

The Best Budget Pizza on Campus

There’s something about pizza that makes it special. It’s comforting and delicious, and there’s something innately social about the entire endeavour. And after working in a pizza shop for five months, it’s something I am intimately familiar with.  When searching for pizza on campus, most people head to Blaze Pizza, located at Yonge-Dundas square. They’ve got great pizza, but it’s pretty expensive, and this whole “personal-sized” pizza trend annoys me to no end, as it takes away the entire sharing aspect of this community themed food. But if you’ve got some extra money to spend and want a quality gourmet […]

Netflix’s Atypical – A Review

With the weather turning frigid and the days shortening as we plunge into a dark and gloomy November, the thought of cozying up inside and enjoying some quality Netflix time is becoming increasingly more appealing. And what better way to ignore all those looming project deadlines than with Netflix’s Atypical? The third season of this unique show was just released, and with Netflix’s disappointing track record of cancelling its original shows after the first or second season, it’s nothing short of a miracle.  Atypical centres around the life of Sam Gardner, a teenager on the autism spectrum who wishes to […]
