What else can we say about Insomnia other than it’s a true gem and a community favourite in the heart of Toronto’s Annex neighbourhood?
How about this: Insomnia has been around for over twenty-four years! During that time the restaurant has made a few changes, but not as many as it has had to this past year since the pandemic hit.
Today we spoke with the management and they shared that Insomnia has done some remodelling to make it more pandemic-friendly, so that when the latest lockdown is over, patrons will be able to dine in while still feeling safe and comfortable.
These changes include booths for four people (instead of six), dividers between tables, and gender-fluid (say goodbye to antiquated "men" and "women") individual washrooms.
“But what about the food”, you ask?
The menu is a mixture of classic Mediterranean and French flavours and over the years, it has received accolades from Toronto Life, UrbanSpoon and Eye Magazine.
Some of the most popular items from their takeout menu include their mouth-watering Chicken linguine pasta (a staple recipe that has not been changed in 24 years!), and for those who like to be adventurous with their foods, why not try their Pineapple burger.
As for desserts, we were told that the Climax double chocolate espresso cake is to die for!
And did you know that they offer takeout cocktails? Yes they do, and the best part is that Thursdays are half-price on all Martinis! Our pick would definitely be the Lemon Drop Martini (Gin or vodka, Lemoncello, grapefruit juice, and lemon) or the Insomniac Espresso Martini (Vodka, Bolivar coffee liqueur, espresso). One word comes to mind: Yummylicious!
Currently, they’re open from Thursday to Fridays from 10am to 10pm and weekends from 9am to 10pm.
Closing hours may fluctuate.
For all Insomnia fans out there, take note: once patio season officially begins, they will be open every day!
How great would it be to have such fab fare just a stroll up the street? If you lived at 200 Clinton - The Button Factory - you'd be only minutes away! In fact, we're proud to have just brought to market #3 (for the first time in 17 years!), which is a 1bed+den unit now offered for sale at $1,569,000! We call it, An Authentic Brick & Beam Loft Townhouse In Little Italy’s Button Factory. Take a peek - it's GORGEOUS!!
