The cafe car takes US currency during the US portions. The cafe will accept only credit cards, prepaid cards, and VIA Rail gift cards for onboard Café purchases in the Canadian section. (I assume debit cards are accepted, but the bold text is from the Amtrak site, and this could change at any time. )

You may bring food and drink aboard the train, but you cannot consume alcohol on the train you brought aboard. Be aware that if you travel between countries, some food cannot cross borders; check if you have any questions.

You must be prepared and honest when dealing with border officers to ensure things go smoothly.

Be aware of what you can bring into the country you are going to, including money and agricultural goods.

Sites like Customs and Border Protections can help you travel into the USA and Canada Border Services Agency for crossing into Canada.

When Making Reservations

When making a reservation for services crossing the US-Canadian border, you must provide certain information, including your date of birth, gender, country of citizenship, and detailed information regarding the form of ID that you will carry with you on your trip. Further conditions apply.

Providing inaccurate or incomplete information will subject you to extensive inspection and questioning at the border. Please make sure that you supply us with complete and accurate information.

The information you provide when you make your reservation will be entered into your reservation record and supplied to Customs and Immigration officers in advance to facilitate your clearance. This information will not be used by Amtrak, VIA Rail Canada, or any Amtrak Thruway provider for any other purpose.

When Traveling

The form of identification you carry with you on your trip should be the same piece of ID that you selected and provided details about when you made your reservation.

You must carry the original, valid identification document. Copies, expired or otherwise invalid documents will not be accepted. Each passenger must have his or her own ID.

[…] At […] Toronto, ON, passengers should arrive at least 30 minutes prior to departure. For those passengers who are not citizens of either the United States or Canada, it is strongly advised to arrive earlier than one hour to complete additional United States Customs and Border Protection processing.
