C’est What is an underground taproom offering comfort food, dozens of craft beers, a whisky bar & board games. This St. Lawrence Market bar and restaurant showcasing local craft beers long before they were trendy is an unfussy spot with impressive 40-plus beers on tap and a decent offering of whiskeys, cocktails, and local Ontario wines. C’est What has a pub-like vibe with pool tables and live music on weekends, and the basement location and multiple fireplaces make it an excellent spot to cozy up on cold or rainy evenings. C’est What is the casual, charming cellar of a historic building in the St. Lawrence Market area. It is Toronto’s first choice for craft beer and comfort food. C’est What has an authentic local flavor, with the largest selection of Canadian craft brews on tap, an all-Ontario VQA wine list, art, indie music, board games, and pool tables. 

C’est What is Toronto’s original craft beer and wine restaurant that has consistently preached from the book of locals, leaving the Irish to have their kind of pubs, the French their style of wine, the Americans their roadhouse food, and top-forty music to radio stations. Since its first opening in 1988, C’est What has always been a proud Canadian cultural ambassador. C’est What is a three-decade-old brewpub in the St. Lawrence Market neighborhood. The pub is situated in the cellar of a historic building and is divided into two equally cozy and dimly lit taprooms with fireplaces, billiards tables, and plenty of seating. There is live music on certain evenings, as well as a scratch-made menu, in addition to the well-stocked bar. The extensive selection of all-Canadian beer, including 42 taps (eight casks) and an extensive bottle menu, has cemented the spot as a true beer lover’s bar. 

C’est What even makes seven of its beers, which are subcontracted to local breweries like County Durham and Granite Brewery. Their signature recipes include Homegrown Hemp Ale, Mother Pucker’s Ginger Wheat, and Steve’s Dreaded Chocolate Orange. Chefs Randy Wink and Carlos Briseno Fera prepare an eclectic menu of comfort food. From goat roti and falafel to Moroccan stew and butter chicken, inspiration comes worldwide. The Shepherd’s pie ($16) is an excellent example of traditional pub fare. The hearty casserole is baked with the house coffee porter and topped with creamy, garlicky potato mash, Welsh cheddar, and deeply caramelized onions.
