Le Provencal Restaurant and Café in 1979 & 2023

Posted:

Looking southeast along St Thomas St, between Bloor St W and Sultan St, in the Bay-Cloverhill neighbourhood of Toronto.

The archive photo shows Le Provencal Restaurant and Café once located at 23 St Thomas St. The restaurant opened in 1963 and featured fine French cuisine and wines. A large fireplace made the dining rooms glow, a well softly splashed water and the warm woods created a charming ambiance. Le Provencal closed in 1988, and today, the site is home to commercial and mixed-use buildings.
