Casa La Palma is the perfect setting for a casual client meeting.

When La Palma opened on Toronto’s Dundas Street West stretch, a short walk from Trinity Bellwoods Park, the vision of a neighbourhood restaurant was overwhelmed with demand when people got a taste of their masterful blend of food, drinks, and light-hearted ambience. It was the product of creative duo, Craig Harding and Alexandra Hutchison, who launched the culinary destination after the success of Toronto institution, Campagnolo, across the street. In the wake of meeting insatiable demand, they saw an opportunity and turned the second floor into Casa La Palma, a cozy snack bar offering a rotation of seasonal plates and a well-stocked bar.

Palm Springs is the design inspiration of Casa La Palma, offering nooks of comfort and luxury in its sunken couches and fireplace alongside relaxed seating and a private dining room. Drinks are a strong feature of Casa La Palma, with an array of thoughtful by the glass options on the wine menu, and cocktails designed by Josh Boismier (of The Cloak Room). Patrons can expect a seasonal menu inspired by Italy and the Mediterranean, with bites that are as shareable as they are memorable.
