BAR KOUKLA

88 OSSINGTON AVE

Spring is here, Summer is near 

Underneath this layer of house-made hollandaise is a perfectly poached egg + a crispy oven-baked spanakopita. We call it the Spana Florentine 🌀

Our Ossington meze + wine bar serves a unique take on brunch weekends from 11am-4pm. Enjoy traditional Aegean flavours through a reimagined menu of brunch classics. 

Regular dinner service Monday through Sunday from 5pm-11pm. Our patio will reopen mid-May once the weather warms.

Explore the unique methods and regions of Greek wine with our Island Flights weekdays from 5pm.

We recommend reservations as space is limited. You can secure your spot through Resy.

Bar Koukla is an Aegean-inspired meze + wine bar located in Toronto’s famed west end. The younger, more rebellious sibling to our original Ossington outpost Mamakas Taverna, Koukla’s open a little later, the music’s a little louder, yet our interpretation of contemporary Greek style offers the same unrivalled authenticity.
