Whenever Jamie and I decide to grab a meal at Butler’s Pantry on Roncesvalles in Toronto’s west end, I feel as if I’ve ventured home for a night. None of this “condo living” garbage, no career to worry about. Just incredibly delicious and healthy food in a small and cozy space that would remind anyone …

1. The perogies, which are served with caramelized onions and sour cream are more than an appetizer… they’re the best dish on the menu.

2. If you’re starving, I would say that the tandoori chicken penne is the most filling item on the menu.

3. Dinner aside, Butler’s Pantry serves up a fantastic brunch as well. The eggs benedict with salmon are especially tasty.

None of this “condo living” garbage, no career to worry about. Just incredibly delicious and healthy food in a small and cozy space that would remind anyone of their childhood kitchen. Once you see the prices, you’ll realize that it’s not that much more expensive than eating at home either.

With prices on all entrees ranging from $9-$14, you can enjoy classic home style dishes such as Tandoori Chicken Penne, Jambalaya, and Shepherd’s Pie on the cheap. But don’t worry, they taste a hell of a lot more expensive than they are… especially the  The Butler’s Pantry is also a fantastic spot for vegetarians, with a wide variety of meat-less options on the menu including Vegetable Lasagna, Vegetable Curry Pie, and a Zucchini Pancake. Dining out on the cheap is rarely so healthy.

Don’t limit yourself to just dinner at Butler’s Pantry, they serve a mean brunch. With numerous sandwiches on the menu in addition to $9 Eggs Benedict, this is a great spot to hit up on a Saturday morning after obliterating your bank account on a Friday night. However, I suggest spending the extra $2 and getting the Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon. It’s an all around great decision.

Butler’s Pantry offers up a diverse selection for dinner and some classic options for brunch, but my favorite dish here is actually an appetizer. The perogies, which are served with caramelized onions, sour cream, and stuffed with potatoes, spinach, and feta cheese are the best thing on the menu (in my opinion). I’ve never been to the location on Bathurst and Bloor, but I can tell you that Jamie and I used to frequent Butler’s Pantry almost every other week when we lived over by High Park. Since we’ve moved, we both miss the perogies… more than we could have ever imagined.
