Caplansky’s Food Truck Announces New Queens Quay Waterfront Location

Popular Toronto food truck, Caplansky’s Thunderin’ Thelma, just tweeted that they will be serving up their deli fare from a new location on Friday.

The new waterfront spot, located at 250 Queens Quay West between University and Spadina, will no doubt make local residents and office workers happy now that they have a new lunch option to try.

For the past few months, Caplansky’s has been dishing out their smoked meat fare to hungry lunch crowds at their Queen St. E. and Dalhousie St. location in a private commercial parking lot – a location that recently came under scrutiny from the City’s Municipal Licensing and Standards department.

Caplansky’s will be at their new location on weekends in April (minus this weekend) and rotate between this location and the current one.
