Our Venues

Each of our venues has a distinct character and style.

1033 College Street, Toronto
College & Ossington
The Depanneur is a delightfully informal and charming venue downtown, just east of College & Dufferin. Founded in 2011 by Len Senater, it is a very special place to Maria - it's where she hosted her first workshops and drop-in dinners!
Len is a superb host and a great person to know; he also hosts and helps organize events for the charity Newcomer Kitchen, which invites Syrian refugee women to cook a weekly meal in their kitchen. The proceeds are shared among the cooks, empowering them as women, cooks and providers for their families.
There is decent street parking in the general area (always check the street signs!). If you don't mind a solid 15min walk then you can also park at either Dufferin Mall or the 'Green P' lot down south, at Ossington & Dundas St. West.

The #506 Streetcar ("Carlton") stops immediately adjacent to Batifole.
201 Weston Rd.
Weston Rd & St. Clair Ave. West.
A modern, stylish event space for workshops, corporate events, catering & special occasions.
Run by Vanessa Yeung, this lovely venue is tucked in behind off Weston Rd. The older exterior does not do the inside true justice - it is a delight, easily fits 25 guests and has excellent acoustics for live music.
There no parking in the unit itself - but the Stockyards shopping mall is a short walk away and has ample underground parking.

The #512 Streetcar stops at Keele/Weston Rd. 
The #89 Weston Rd. bus stops just north/south of the venue.
744 Gerrard St E, Toronto
Just west of Gerrard & Carlaw
Batifole Gourmand is an intimate French restaurant that serves simple, comfortable French food without pretense and has been a popular destination for residents of Riverdale and Leslieville for more than 10 years. Chef Pascal's goal is to make you feel at home, help you unwind, relax and have a great time among friends. Uniquely located in the Old (East-end) Chinatown, the restaurant has caught the attention of food critics and has received many rave reviews. Come experience this hidden gem for yourself!
There is decent street parking in the general area (always check the street signs!). If you don't mind a solid 5-10 min walk then you can also park at  'Green P' west at Broadview & Gerrard, or park east at Riverdale Shoopping Center (Carlaw & Gerrard).

The #506 Streetcar ("Carlton") stops immediately adjacent to the The Depanneur.
