My wife and I visited this pub during an overnite stay in Toronto. The pub is easy to find with their unique sign standing out on the street side. Walking down some stairs into the pub everything is red brick walls. Upon entering, there is a long rectangular bar to the right and a fish tank in front of you. There are table and chair combos and some booths throughout the pub. At least 4 pool tables as well and some fireplaces as well. Very nice atmosphere. I also discover some book cases of old beer bottles near the bathrooms , some pretty cool bottles there.
The beers on tap are not brewed on premise, I dont think. There are 6 house beers and also a good selection of local/regional canadian ales and lagers. I had the chocolate ale and the hemp ale and both were good.
Food ranges from typical pub grub to unique east asian vegetarian fare. We actually both ordered vegetarian and the food was VERY tasty. One dish was a little spicy which was unexpected from the description but very nice flavor mix regardless. prices were pretty reasonable for the food and the beer, I ordered beers at 1/2 pint size and paid 2-3$ a drink.
The sevice was very friendly and helpful.
Overall I enjoyed my visit to this establishment, I would go here again for sure.

I'm starting to question my time on this site based on the reviews I seem to be at odds with much of the time. C'est What is NOT a brewpub for starters, it is a great pub that only serves Canadian micro brews. Very comfortable, great staff, beer is always fresh, well served, and with a wide selection. I suppose BA geeks might miss the lack of imperial stouts and IIIPAs, but who cares, the quality here is excellent. Definitely my favorite in Toronto, don't miss it.

Good menu, huge rotating range of craft beers, many cask conditioned. Knowledgeable and helpful staff. All round one of my favourite places to have a few in the city.

Stopped by for a birthday lunch and left very happy. C'est What is located across the street from Toronto's "Flatiron Building" (Not sure of the actual name) in a cozy, comfortable and attractive subterranean room decorated in light wood and stonework. There is a lengthy bar on one side and the usual smattering of tables and such. Very atmospheric. Along with this is a very impressive beer list that offers their own house beers and several local crafts. (They do have something on cask, as well.) Excellent service and some hearty grub made for a fine lunch amid the hustle and bustle of the city's downtown core.
During my visit, I enjoyed these: Hogtown Kolsch, Al's Cask, Joan's Dark Secret and a tasty IPA from one of Ontario's newer brewers Rhyme and reason.
A worthy stop when in Toronto.
