Originally built in 1910 as three street front stops including a grocery, our beautiful building was converted to the Hotel Maple Leaf in 1935. Operated as a hotel, bar and dining room for travelers and local residents for 80+ years. Maple Leaf Tavern is perfectly situated for residents and travellers Toronto’s vibrant Eastend. Through the 1980’s,1990’s and 2000’s the Maple Leaf Tavern garnered notoriety as a down and out drinking hall. We stepped into the space in 2013 and undertook extensive renovations to bring back this landmark to its former splendour. Maple Leaf Tavern 2.0 re-opened in Spring 2016 and has been the catalyst for the Gerrard St. E. rejuvenation.
Our goal is to recreate the look and feel of a true community Tavern. Menus and service reflect the highest quality of culinary ability in an approachable come as you are atmosphere. “An everyday establishment fit for a special occasion.” We focus our efforts on working with the best people and the best suppliers our great city has to offer. We hope you enjoy and make us your neighbourhood destination when you are in Leslieville, East Toronto. See you soon #atthetavern
