Open year round, we are located on WARDS ISLAND of the Toronto Islands, a pleasant five minute walk west from the Ward's Island Ferry terminal, overlooking Lake Ontario.

Nestled into one of Toronto's most memorable locations and honored to be voted NOW magazine's "Best Lakeside Patio", our fine food and friendly service are sure to make your visit to The Rectory Café a memorable one.

Come enjoy our freshly renovated interior by Meredith Heron. The rotating Island Art will dazzle your eyes while the cheerful fire place sets the tone for cozy fall afternoons.

Ideal for a sumptuous family brunch, an intimate dinner for two or a truly unique event, the Rectory Café creates special memories every day. Fully Licensed under the Liquor License Act (AGCO) we offer the 'Bring your own Wine' option. Corking fees apply.
