Helmed by award-winning chef Jamie Kennedy, Gilead Café and Bistro whips up a tantalizing selection of seasonal fare sourced by local producers and culinary artisans. Delight in the comestible splendours of Ontario's agribounty with an ever-changing menu of hearty soups, salads, baked goods, and more. Presently, patrons can start a meal with a beet salad ($9) or curried sweet potato croquettes ($9) before moving onto the J.K. cheeseburger ($11) or braised short rib with parsley ravigôte sauce ($18). Round out a mighty meal with indulgences as exquisite as the bling in Orion's belt, such as the chocolate panna cotta with peanut-butter mousse ($11) or a selection from the extensive by-the-glass wine list, featuring an arsenal of pours sourced solely from Ontario.

Centrally situated in historic Corktown just north of the Distillery District, Gilead Café and Bistro offers diners a leaping point into balmy cultural waters. With its colourful mason-jar-lined walls chock-full of preserved delicacies, a floor-to-ceiling chalkboard menu, and a spacious, sunny interior, Gilead Café and Bistro proves an ideal place to knight palates into the region's culinary court.


Gilead Café and Bistro has received favourable press from the Globe and Mail, blogTO, and Toronto Life magazine. More than 10 Yelpers give it a four-star average, and 90 per cent of Urbanspooners recommend it.

  • My friends and I popped in for lunch and fully enjoyed our meal, owing to the mixture of great tasting food, casual atmosphere, and super friendly staff. – Kitty Lo, blogTO
  • Kennedy's mission is always to showcase local ingredients, and what a showcase! Nobody else in town serves a smoked turkey sandwich with turkey that tastes as if it had spent time in a real smokehouse. – Joanne Kates, Globe and Mail
