Gale's Snack Bar Western & Shake

Recession-Proof Dining at Gale's Snack Bar

Are you as depressed as the markets are because there doesn't seem to be any affordable nosh left in the city? Well check your expectations and your irony at the door and get ready to eat some honest to goodness diner fare at this ghost of Leslieville's past - Gale's Snack Bar.

In an attempt to demonstrate that you can still occasionally get value for money, I arrive this winter afternoon with several hungry friends and a solitary $20 bill to see exactly how much chow we can get.
