I love this place, The hot dogs are huge & trully tasty. But If you want a sandwich nothing beats the Corned Beef on Rye. With a side of latakes (potatoe pancakes!) They offer apple sauce to dip them in!! The place is always busy so try to go a little early that way you can get a spot to sit. They have a great menu, but I never get anything else besides the Corned beef.
The year was 1921. Radio was in its infancy, the Model T Ford was the car to have and Coca-Cola was gaining popularity as a refreshing summer drink.
This was the year that Harry and Jenny Shopsowitz opened a small ice cream parlor below their tiny apartment on Spadina Avenue, in the heart of Toronto’s garment district. Little did they know that they were founding an institution. From these meager beginnings, their sons Sam and Izzy built the business, and Sam eventually became known as Canada’s ‘Corned Beef King.’ For over 85 years now Shopsy’s has been serving up mouth-watering deli fare to Torontonians and visiting celebrities alike. We can only imagine how proud Harry and Jenny would be today if they knew how successful a Canadian icon Shopsy’s has become. So sit back, enjoy your meal and taste for yourself how Shopsy’s earned its reputation for the freshest, most delectable deli fare anywhere. Our full service restaurants are now offering breakfast, lunch, dinner and takeout. Also, dont miss our extensive catering menu available for all of your corporate and social needs.
