Everything at this new restaurant in the Annex will cost $4.95
In a city where sandwich prices have begun drifting into the mid-teens, the pricing model at this soon-to-open restaurant in the Annex seems fairly revolutionary (although not quite as revolutionary as the one at this restaurant). At El Furniture Warehouse, the first Toronto location of the Vancouver-based Warehouse restaurant chain, every single food item on the menu will cost $4.95, whether it’s a pulled-pork sandwich or a plate of nachos. Based on food shots from the Whistler location (and dozens of happy Yelp reviews), it’s not just an empty gimmick, either: the portions appear to be sizable and the food looks pretty appetizing, in a low-frills kind of way. “Basically, we always say we’re serving $20 restaurant meals for $4.95,” co-owner Sean Young told Post City. “It is top quality food.” Unfortunately, drinks don’t appear to be covered by the under-five-bucks rule, although seven-dollar mojitos are really nothing to complain about. The restaurant, which opens on July 1, will be located somewhere along Bloor Street between Spadina and Bathurst, although the precise location is apparently still a secret.

This is good to see. Unfortunately the restaraunt business has become a little pretensous. I don’t care what the place is called or who the chef is. A hamburger should not cost upwards of $20. Its gotten pretty ridiculous.
A sister restaurant of Le Bureau de Poste in Québec City? Great news! :)
Was just here, as sadly it was delayed opening—and it is a great concept and the place was hopping (pun intended) but indeed where they get you is in the BEERverage department as all their beers even domestics are close to 6 bucks as a Bud Light will run you $5.75 here, but hey there is no law saying you have to have a pint.
Other thing they do is charge extra for sauces without informing you…as Chipotle Mayo on a side of Onion Rings ($1.95) will go for $0.99, but that isn’t a big deal and no where near as bad as places that charge you like 99 cents for TOMATO on your burger.
So not that I need to, as the place was PACKED, I would definitely recommend this place as it sure beats paying $4.50 for day old street meat.
To the management of El Furniture Warehouse.
FYI: if a customer comes to you asking why their drink order hasn’t arrived after 45 minutes, THEY ARE NOT LOOKING FOR A REASON.
Explain why things are slow if you have to. The customer doesn’t really care. They just want their drink. 45 minutes ago.
You make it right by apologizing and offering the drink as free or a discount as a result of the VERY SLOW SERVICE.
Don’t tell the customer, “it’s because we just opened and we are still figuring shit out.”
Also, if you start of with that excuse, what excuse do you pull out when the food comes out 1.30 hours after you’ve ordered? NONE, because NOTHING SHOULD TAKE THAT LONG, EVEN AT $4.95.
Who knows, WE MAY HAVE STAYED and ordered more drinks, but no one ever came to check up on us, for re-fills. So….
Not worth returning. Overhyped. Poor customer relations.
