Finally visited Toronto's famous Lakeview Lunch diner - and it was dreadful ! My hot hamburger sandwich was covered in viscous commercial-tasting gravy, the "home-made" mashed potatoes were the worst of the genre (mashed without any trace or taste of butter and milk, thus merely two gummy balls) and the burger, way overdone, lacked any beef or spice taste. I overheard the waitress try to tell the guys at the next table that egg creams were made with Coke ! This may have been a great Toronto institution at one point; but on this very limited experience it lacks any merit - nor is it particularly cheap. ( I think my hot sandwich was $8.50 or so).
