Existing Restaurant

Branding & Consulting

The Donlands Diner was established in 1955 in East York in the popular Beaches area. They are a 50s-styled, traditional diner that has been proudly serving the upper beaches community with an all-day breakfast menu and traditional diner dishes, milkshakes and pies.

In the Fall, they approached our team for support and guidance on how they could refresh their branding, space and interiors, and menu offering; while staying true to its routes.  Our branding and consultants team worked seamlessly on this project in order to meet the 60-day turnaround project deadline.
