When it comes to choosing a spot to eat, why shy from the familiar? This is what I tell myself every time I eat at a little diner on the corner of Yonge and Albertus called Uncle Betty’s. While working just down the street from the then-brand-new diner during the summer, this was a favourite haunt of mine after late shifts and for the occasional lunch break. Open since April, it has garnered a strong local following and with good reason: it’s delicious.
