General Food, Dining and Nightlife News
I remember some time ago we did a count of how many coffee places there were in DTK (it was something like two dozen, iirc). We should do a count of how many "lunch places" there are in DTK - I'm guessing that there would be more than 50, but fewer than 100. Beyond that, no idea.

I'm curious why you describe this place as just a lunch counter? Their existing locations in Waterloo and Hamilton are open quite late, midnight to 4am depending on the day. I think they do a lot of after-bar and late night snack business. If they are open late in DTK too I'd say that's a good sign that DTK nightlife is picking up.

Not that I disagree with wanting to see more retail and sit down restaurants, but this seems like a pretty solid addition to DTK.

Takeaway food might be a good fit for the world where the pandemic isn't too far away.

Flippancy, mostly. Disregard, a little bit. Moderate ignorance. Bias. The usual.
