Best bets are Subway and Thai Delight. Althougth it's just chinese food and not really Thai. This mall was in need of a makeover and appears to be getting a gigantic one.

A little late Hahahaha, though the "food court" at Gerrard Square had only a couple of eateries before they added the few more in recent years. There was Poonie's on one side and Bessie's right across from it next to the bank. They both had decent stuff. Poonie's had great deep fried chicken wings with sweet and sour sauce. They later became Kaneko & Poonie before leaving. Bessie's used to make a nice burger and fries as well.

Then there was Steak & Burger next to Zellers. Their wings, garlic bread and onion rings were great too!

Also, the former Sears; where the Home Depot sits since used to have a nice cafeteria style restaurant tucked away in the store on the upper level by the portrait studios, it appeared.

On the outside plaza facing Gerrard Street on the street level by the underground parkade, there was The Pizza Barn & Spaghetti House restaurant' which looked quite nice and quaint.

Until a few years ago, their was a nice cafe/crepe place (kiosk style) on the upper level across from Service Canada and Benix called Crepe It Up or something like that. Had a nice sitting area to relax and have a nice treat there.

Ah yes, a revisit to the Gerrard Square food court thread.
Nice to see the McDonald's is still there. (just outside the mall)
Here's an updated image of the GS food court today:

Look, the place is east side Gerrard/Broadview. Old chinatown and GHETTO af... Hasnt changed in a 100yrs. The MickeyD's has been renovated. Same as all the other MD's except you get more homeless stragglers as patrons... and single welfare moms with 3-5 kids noising up the joint. The entire mall was always filthy, cheap low class, lower income five and dime shops. I'm surprised there's a Home Depot there which is not bad actually. There's one old coot who is really good at his job, great customer service. Not sure if he's still there.

^ Actually the McD's was not "renovated" it was literally knocked down completely into rubble. It was built all over again and not even in the exact physical location. Generally speaking, it is somewhat the same corner but definitely not the same "spot" where the originally McDonald's was.

The only place I still get food from is the Caribbean place in the food court. From the first arrival of Tropical Joe's their menu price has skyrocketed astronomically. The only reason, I still go there is their "large" orders portions especially their roti are still bigger than anywhere else for Caribbean food. PERIOD.

Don't crap all over my Gerrard Square man. I grew up around that mall. Use to bike there after school to waste my quarters when they had an arcade (great 80s) and go next door to that burger place. Oh man, it's 1988 all over again.
Steak and Burger, formerly Ponderosa. Sweet memories of my youth.
