Caplansky's Deli, Toronto

New Caplansky's location in Yorkville has whimsical bathroom signs, just like the original location on College Street.

 Caplansky's Deli Yorkville
156 Cumberland St

Went back to Caplansky's recently and the awesome bathroom signs featuring Zane Caplansky have been replaced with these ones–more elegant but not nearly as entertaining as the previous ones.


These comical bathroom signs provide another type of "brand recognition", with the brand being represented by the dynamic and slightly larger-than-life owner of Caplansky's Deli, Zane Caplansky.  Zane is a vocal advocate for food trucks including his own, nicknamed "Thunderin' Thelma".  This deli has good smoked meat sandwiches, fries and gravy.
