The Senator Restaurant
The Senator Restaurant, formerly known as ‘Busy Bee Diner’, enjoys the distinction of being Toronto’s oldest restaurant, having dominated the culinary scene of Toronto for more than eight decades now. Since its inception in 1929, the restaurant has been serving fresh and perfectly done dishes to the people of Toronto, and huge rush of people trying to get into the restaurant is a stark testimony to the meticulous effort that goes behind the preparation of the dishes and ingredients here, right from breads to stocks, and even sauces.

The best part is that the restaurant is never close!
