Deja Views: The 1970s and Gregory’s Deli and Coffee Shop on Queen Street East

Gregory's Deli and Coffee Shop on Queen Street East in the 1970s. Photo by Ann Patterson.


In the 1970s Ann Patterson ran a camera store on Queen Street East called Carter & Carter Photography. Many times, Ann would take her camera on her lunch break and shoot storefronts in the Beach.

This image of Gregory’s Deli & Coffee Shop sits on the sunny side of Queen Street across from Kew Gardens.

Obviously, today, it’s some little breakfast place called The Sunset Grill.

Thank you Ann for sharing your wonderful photographs.
