Although it was already my second time to connect thru Toronto Airport in June, I was still excited to make a review of this lounge since I had only visited the Maple Leaf Lounge (Transborder) last year and I think there's always a difference between the two. I thought that the food and drinks selection was great. I had enough time to visit the lounge so I also had time to take a shower and check my emails. The lounge itself is very spacious with lots of seating areas although I spent most of my time in the business center. Wifi was also very fast which is something that's very important for me. Staff were all very friendly which I guess is a common trait of Canadians 😉 Overall, a very nice lounge.
