Step Inside Farmhouse Tavern Toronto
Farmhouse Tavern is one of the best restaurants in The Junction, in Toronto’s West End.
Restauranteur Darcy MacDonnell, opened Farmhouse Tavern in Toronto in June 2012. Previously Darcy had worked at the management level for restaurants such as Oliver & Bonacini, SIR Corp and La Societe.
Step inside Farmhouse Tavern Toronto and you’ll find a rural Ontario vibe. Designed with the help of Michelle Mawby, skip around the dining room and you’ll find antique chairs, hardwood floors, vintage chandeliers and moose horns.
Darcy describes the restaurant as, “a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll.” It’s a friendly self-styled gastro-pub serving barnyard chic that he’s personalized by hanging photos on the walls featuring the old MacDonell farmhouse and family crest.
In the warm summer, the Canadian farm-to-table restaurant offers one of Toronto’s best patios. It’s the best place in The Junction to enjoy weekend brunch with friends and family. The al fresco space is even decorated with an herb garden that sits on rusty scrap metal. The restaurant’s barbecue smoker even gives new life to a tractor.
The restaurant also features an intimate private dining space called “Hunt Camp,” which seats 9-12 guests at one high top table.

Reading this post… my mouth has been watering the whole time. The carnivore in me in rejoicing (militant vegetarians and vegans hate me). It’s nice to see the Junction area with these great venues for fantastic food.
Was certainly a meat lovers moment!
