The Purvey tradition started in 1919 when Henry Purvey went into business on Dundas Street in Toronto. Henry’s son, Jeff Purvey, was born at this location. After serving 6 years in the Canadian Armed Service during WWII, Jeff joined his father and together they expanded into three Toronto locations: Young St., Danforth Ave., and McRae Ave. in Leaside.
In 1956 Jeff moved to Peterborough and opened the current location. Originally, the restaurant seated 12, but has since been enlarged and now has a capacity of 85. Jeff’s only son Ken became the third generation Purvey to run the family business.
