Frequently Asked Questions

How does catering work at StartWell?

When you book meeting or event space at StartWell in downtown Toronto, you can choose the catering company you prefer.

You are welcome to use any caterer you prefer to work with when you book meeting or event space at StartWell – from UberEats for small gatherings to organising for served meals or buffets for full team offsites etc…

We’ve had great experience in the past with these companies and do recommend reaching out to them:

The Food Dudes ( – reliable service for individual meals or shared or served menus - of all types of cuisines. Great for complete catering solutions.

InWit ( - honest food and pricing, with all types of cuisines arriving hot and fresh from local restaurant partners, in sustainable packaging. Best for per-person lunch solutions.

MadRadish ( - great options for healthy food!

Are coffee, tea and filtered water included in venue rental?

All hosts and guests at StartWell enjoy complimentary espresso bar service at our main building's reception (786 King ST W.)

From Monday - Friday (9AM - 4PM) our staff baristas prepare espresso beverages and provide self-service pour-over coffee; all using micro-roaster ethically sourced beans. We also have a special robot that brews loose-leaf teas on demand and taps for reverse-osmosis filtered still and sparkling water at our reception cafe, available for 24hr self-service with bottles, cups and lids.

Campus location and car parking

Our campus on King Street does not have a parking lot, but there is plenty of street parking in our neighbourhood.

Free 1hr street parking and paid parking lots are available. Note - King St typically does not allow parking past 3pm (during rush hour.)

We are minutes away from the financial core and Union Station, close to the Exhibition GO station and just off Lakeshore Boulevard + the Gardiner Expressway.

Directly across the street from our King St buildings (entrance from Tecumseth, south of King Street) is a paid underground parking lot operated by Upark. You can drive into the lot and pay hourly, daily or monthly from meters near the elevator entrances in the lot itself. When you walk up to the exit at street level you’ll be directly across the road from our King Street buildings.

If you've booked our Event Studio you will however have 4 parking spaces on the lot included with rental - just in front of the building. Please note: unless you've booked this building you *cannot* park at this location.
