Lakeview Restaurant Toronto

The Lakeview dispels Reddit rumours of its demise

Lovers of late night milkshakes and breakfast sandwiches have nothing to fear because the Lakeview Restaurant isn't shutting down anytime soon.

Earlier today, a post surfaced on Reddit detailing how the Lakeview closed down for a little while this morning. Redditor mrWildsmith also claimed they spotted the diner owners and landlords arguing outside the Dundas and Ossington storefront.

We reached out to Lakeview owner Fadi Hakim and he was quick to dispel the rumours. This morning, he told us, the restaurant did indeed shut down, but for maintenance. And while he was talking to someone outside his front door, that person was a contractor. "The Lakeview will forever be always open," he said via email.
