Leaside Village Station Restaurant
Canadian Pacific Hotels
50 Station Road, Leaside, ON
Open from 1975 to May 29, 1983.
It was the first of a planned series of such restaurants.
Several old passenger cars were incorporated into it. It was not very
successful for a number of reasons not the least of which was the food.
Since it was owned by CP Hotels people no doubt associated that with the
Royal York. Unfortunately, you didn't get Royal York quality food since
it was prepared by Cara Foods who also supplied CP Air. The other factor
was its somewhat out of the way location, which wasn't easy to find.
The second one was to be West Toronto however, it was abruptly
cancelled when it was discovered the area was dry.
Later, Tuscan Club located on the property (not using the station).
Village Station Restaurant with added superstructure makes
it look more traditional railway style.
GO 515 eastbound with special employee shuttle train from
Lambton Yard to Toronto Yard
