A 24-hour diner, The Counter, has opened in the brand-new Thompson Toronto hotel.

Seating 105 and covering 2,900 sq. ft., the restaurant serves breakfast from 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and an all-day menu from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m.

Staples include an all-day breakfast, burgers, mac ’n’ cheese, milkshakes and salads.

Canadiana comes courtesy of poutine and sandwiches (peameal-bacon and Montreal smoked-meat).

The restaurant is licensed from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m.

Visually, the restaurant is a modern interpretation of the original boxcar diner: curved-wood ceiling, patterned floor tile, blue-velvet banquettes, handblown lampshades and flocked wallpaper inspired by art deco.

Additional features include three 42-inch plasma televisions.

Located at Bathurst and Wellington Streets, in Toronto’s entertainment district, the Thompson Toronto opened in mid-June and will likely be a hot destination for meeting and event planners.
