Now serving pizze, 11:30-22:00, 7 DAYS.

from their website:
“My name is David Mattachioni and I was born to make you pizza.

This is my place, a spot I’ve been dreaming about forever. It’s not what I want yet, and there’s a mountain of hard work ahead, but it’s coming together, one day at a time.

So we’ve started making some pizze, and are open until 22:00 now, 7 days a week. The menu is small but we believe that it’s good. We’ve got a few Italian wines on the list and of course, Norm’s wine. I hope that you come by and check us out, I think the pizze are coming out great, and I’m sure that you’ll like them. Start with the Margherita, there are others on the menu, but really, why would you want anything else?!

See you soon.”

We are a vegan, gluten-free quick service restaurant serving delicious and sustainable fare. Located in the Financial District in downtown Toronto, our menu features healthy meals, beverages & snacks. We also offer catering for offices and private functions.
Just because we have less time to sit and eat does not mean we have less time to eat well! Noticing a lack of quality quick-service options, we opened with the goal of providing fresh, minimally processed, and flavourful sustenance to the on-the-go human in our on-the-go age.
At Kupfert & Kim, we have a full-service vegan espresso bar serving direct-trade, organic beans from acclaimed roasters, STUMPTOWN. Come by for an expertly crafted americano, latte or cappuccino.
We offer a 35 cent discount on any beverage or meal to anyone supplying their own containers! If not, we will be happy to provide 100% compostable take-out materials for all of our delights.”

It all started with delicious homemade recipes for burgers and onion rings, made fresh to order. From the simple principles of quality ingredients, fresh made to order meals and fast, friendly service grew the Shamrock concept you see today with a unique rock and roll edge and a wall you can write on.

The core menu consisting of burgers fries and onion rings is populated with the Classic Rock, Rock Star and Famous combos. And if you think you can handle it “The Monster Sham” burger.

Several other delicious offerings complement the core menu, including:

May it make you yearn for more of what my heart craves, nonna’s kitchen
