Flo's Diner from Yorkdale, Toronto Celebrates Its 25th Anniversary This Year
Joseph Bersani bought 4D's diner in 1990 and opened up Flo's Diner (his mother's name was Florence) in February 1991. Two former employees, Pierre Hamel and Peter Lau, now own it. The diner was originally opened on the corner of Bellair and Cumberland, right across the street from Harry Rosen. It was 5000 square feet, with 80 seats inside, another 40 seats outside and a rooftop patio overlooking Yorkville Park. Flo’s moved to its current location at 70 Yorkville, on the second floor, in November 2000.
So next time when you go shopping in Yorkville area, make sure to stop at Flo's Diner for a quick bite, a lunch or a coffee, and then continue your shopping spree with new energy. :)
Being in such an elegant and fancy area like Yorkville, Flo’s Diner has welcomed a long list of celebrities and well known public figures at the diner. Flo’s Diner truly value those long time customers who come back time and time again. People who have been coming to the diner for years are now bringing their children.
I definitely should go to Flo's Diner one of these days.
