We arent trying to be, we just are

Cardinal Rule is the restaurant you’ve been waiting for. From our Maki n’ Cheese to our Squish Squash Quesadilla all the way to the bacon crusted Breakfast Pie, Chef Marta Kusel is really thowin’ down in the kitchen. With frequent specials, such as Chipotle Pulled Pork on Sourdough with an Apple/Cherry/Red Cabbage Slaw and Salmon Asparagus Crepes you will only keep finding new ways to pleasure your palate.

Like fun? Then book a team and test your head gunk at the weekly trivia night, or wear your winning pants to the monthly “Surprise Party!”, where the guest of honour just might be you! Cardinal Rule is hinged between Queen West and Roncesvalles at the hub of Toronto’s west end. This little Designer Diner will tickle all of your senses. Whether you are taking in the ambiance & tuneage, enjoying the art shows, tantalizing your taste buds with our awesome selection of comfort foods (done with just enough panache) or sipping a cool specialty cocktail made by our very own mix-master, we are sure to please. Owned and operated by 2 cool gals with experience and charm enough to make you want to come, make you want to stay and make you want to return time and time again.

Come and hang out with your friends, because they’re already here!!
