Hank’s is a cafe diner in the St. Lawrence market area. It’s hip, upmarket vibe offers an ideal respite from the bustle of downtown. Menus are home-style and well executed. Notable are the various Eggs Bennies and the 2-Hander Sandwiches on thick, grainy bread. Hank’s espresso is some of the city’s best. The all-day breakfast is certainly a hit with the market crowd and creative types who want to get some business done over a casual meal. Hank’s also works well to grab a latte and a homemade baked good. Take out is available but recommend eating in. A very cool and relaxing spot that is a sure hit for weekday brunch/lunch and weekend brunch. Morphs nicely into modish event space in the evenings. Fully Licensed.
GOOD TO KNOW: Must try dishes include Hank’s famous Breakfast Poutine with Hollandaise and soft poached egg in place of the usual gravy. Get your Lipitor Rx ready!
