Great places to eat in Toronto
Gia: plant-based Italian done SO well with a cosy ambience and an awesome natural wine selection
Haifa: My fave Middle Eastern spot in Toronto. A full sit-down meal is great but the grab-n-go falafel pita from the window is world-class
Blondies: Toronto staple pizza spot. Don’t forget to get the F**king tasty dipping sauce.
The Federal: one of my fav breakfast spots in town. Order the Gold Standard breakfast sandwich and thank me later.
Quetzal: hands down the best meal I’ve had in Toronto. World-class Mexican cuisine.
Places to drink
True History: Undoubtedly some of the best beer in the city. They’re Pilsner and Lager gurus and also my close friends who I’ve known since I was 9 years old. Solid dudes, solid beer.
Bellwoods: Super hip brewery with a great patio and in a great location. Mega high quality. Would definitely go early though as there’s always a line.
Milou: If you appreciate a well-made cocktail, head here. Very stylish with a mega vibe.
Ronnie’s: the best dive bar I’ve been to. It doesn’t get much divier than this! 🙂 Located in the amazing Kensington Market.
El Rey: top-notch Mexican spot with a fantastic mezcal selection.
Cherry Bomb: Hands down the best croissant/coffee combo in the city.
Going out out
Coda: I owe so much to this venue, an integral part of my musical upbringing. World-renowned spot, definitely check it out if you’re up for a dance.
Vertigo: a late-night destination with a low ceiling and proper vibe. I’ve had a blast playing here and it’s worth a check out.
Standard Time: a new spot located on the always fun, Geary Ave. Massive disco ball, minimal production, SOLID sound system. It almost feels like you’re in your friend’s loft – a very welcoming atmosphere. Highly recommend!
Other cools things to try
Camping in Algonquin Park: Head north and experience one of my favourite parts of Ontario – embarking on a camping trip to Algonquin Park full of stunning lakes and hikes.
AGO: Explore the art world at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO). Fun to check out if you’re into art and it’s always host to cool exhibits.
Biking through the city: Rent a bike and embark on a two-wheeled adventure through Toronto. Really fun to bike along the water or through some of the different neighbourhoods downtown.
High Park Picnic: Pack a picnic basket and head west to relax by the pond, and enjoy a leisurely afternoon surrounded by nature’s beauty.
