Profile Last Updated: April 04, 2008
On an unassuming corner on Bathurst Street halfway between Bloor and Dupont, Grapefruit Moon cooks up homestyle fare morning, afternoon, and night. Open at the crack of 8am every day, Grapefruit Moon serves up greasy spoon favourites like bacon and eggs with a slice of grapefruit for breakfast, as well as burgers and enormous quesadillas at lunch or dinnertime. These are balanced by a sizeable selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes to nourish the neighborhood’s herbivores.
…To Sudsy Pints Under the Moon
Very much a north Annex hangout, Grapefruit Moon takes a casual, familiar approach to dining. Servers and the cooks in the open kitchen are chatty and friendly, and should diners have a craving for something not on the menu, they will try to make it. Grapefruit Moon is extraordinarily family friendly for an urbane resto. It features a kids’ menu that knows what youngsters want – chicken fingers and grilled cheese sandwiches figure prominently. Customers young and old will enjoy the selection of homemade pies for dessert. After the kitchen closes at around 10 pm, Grapefruit Moon becomes something of a local watering hole, serving drinks until 1 am.
It’s Always Local
Grapefruit Moon takes quiet pride in maintaining a local flavour in everything from the food it serves to the art on its walls. The restaurant counts on local suppliers to provide most of its ingredients. For example, their burger patties come from Guelph’s Rowe Farm Meats, and their selection of beer consists for the most part of Ontario microbrews. The paintings on the walls are by local artists, and rotate monthly.
