Mad Crush is easily accessible through its barrier-free front entrance on College Street. The entrance has two doors, each 37 inches in width, with no level changes. There are two removable carpets located at the front entrance. The dining area features bar height tables, booths, and standard height tables with removable chairs. The pathways are unobstructed and there is ample room to maneuver.
The accessible washroom is located on the main floor of the restaurant near the front entrance; just ask one of the staff members for the key! Unfortunately, there is not an automatic button for the washroom door. The door is 36 inches wide with a lever handle that opens outwards. The washroom features a wall hook, automatic hand dryer, and a baby change table. There is one angled grab bar beside the toilet. The sink measures 30 inches in height, with clear space underneath.
During the day, the restaurant was well lit with large windows at the front and many overhead light fixtures, although the lighting is dimmed in the evenings. At the time of visiting, the music was kept fairly low in volume. Mad Crush offers a lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch menu, which all feature good contrast and readable font size. Mad Crush’s excellent customer service was a highlight of the visit — the staff were extremely welcoming and eager to offer assistance!
