I first visited this establishment on July 11, 2007 with a friend. It is a small restaurant with as many seats inside as outside. The server brought both a food menu (mainly Italian) and a beer menu (over 150 varieties available). Checking the website, I discovered that 29 of the top 100 from this site were available. One of the things I noticed when reading the beer menu was that there were some listed on the menu not ono the web site. I chose a St. Bernardus Abt 12. Most of the patrons in the restaurant were drinking a wide variety of beer.
The food was good, not great. The service was very good as well. No hovering.
Value? I found the prices for similar beers at Smokeless Joe’s and The Beer Bistro to be less expensive at Cafe Volo. I find the atmosphere at Cafe Volo to be similar to that of Smokeless Joe’s and more conducive to beer drinking than the Beer Bistro. I have already recommended this place to a friend.

A very biased review, the place is great, rare Cantillons, a bottled beer list that would not be lost anywhere in the world. Great snacks and trays for food, loved the place.

Nice pub with a great draft and bottle list. Probably the best in Toronto. Tiny though and although I don’t mind the self serve it makes for some waiting. Staff really know their stuff. They also have their own brews which are pretty good. A must for people looking for good craft in town.

Was here for the Bellwoods tap takeover in the summer. Very crowded, bar service only (but maybe that was an event-only thing?), but knowledgable, friendly, efficient staff. Amazing Bellwoods taps, and I’ve read there daily chalkboard tap list since then, do selection scores high.

Le meilleur bar à bière que j’ai fréquenté, un choix hallucinant et avec des bières canadiennes et américaines incroyables. Et une excellent sélection de bières européennes, cepedant ces dernières sont hors de prix.

Loved it! Great atmosphere, good beer, and decent food. Some of the house ales were amazing. I’ll stop by anytime I’m in the city.

This was my favourite pub in Toronto. Loved everything about it. The decor, the atmosphere and the beer. Staff was friendly. I was there on a cheap beer night so I was happy with that. If I lived in the city you would find me here. Who needs cell phones?

What a great place in downtown Toronto. I was there around 6pm, not too many customers but I can imagine how this place can fill up pretty quickly during the night. I tasted their beers (house ales) are there are excellent. Worth the trip!

Have been on many occasions and I love this place for their extensive selection of excellent local and imported beers. Staff are friendly but they’ve recently eliminated table service. The menu is quite limited though I have to say the charcuterie plate we had was excellent. Great place for a beer and light snack.
