About Two Six Ate

Welcome to


We’ll be hosting a Halloween party upstairs starting at 10:00pm on Friday, October 31st!
No cover, $5 PBR’s, Music by DJ Jets, and Beau’s giveaways for best costume Muahahah!!

Our concept is simple: making tasty snack foods inspired by local, fresh, sustainable products. We offer contemporary variations on classic munchies with just about everything prepared in house. We take pride in crafting a regularly changing menu based on the principle of nose-to-tail cooking.

Located in the heart of Little Italy, we are happy to embrace the neighbourhood and culture by incorporating Italian gastronomy and spirits.

We offer a small plates menu and our full menu is available Wednesday through Monday from 4:00 pm until 2:00 am (closed Tuesdays).

Our second floor is equipped with its own bar making it ideal for accommodating larger groups. Please contact us for reservations, group reservations, take-out orders, or any other inquiries.
