Break­fast, lunch, din­ner or snacks – Syr­ian man­aeesh, a flat­bread stuffed with top­pings like lab­neh, za’atar, hal­loumi or meat, does it all. Sam­ple the doughy good­ness for your­self at this newly up-and-run­ning fam­i­ly­owned cafe on Queen West, where the vibe is airy, the ser­vice is friendly and the prices are even friend­lier.
