I’ve been in Toronto for the last two weeks staying at my friend Wes’s place while he was away on vacation, and I am totally in love with Toronto!! I had so much fun, and I made a list of some of my favourite places that I visited.
I put * next to the ones I’d recommend if you’re here for a short period of time. A lot of these places were fun to check out since I had so much time here, but aren’t really places you’d need to see if you’re here for a weekend or so, you know? There are only so many coffee shops you can see in a weekend, but I do love all of these spots!
Sorry Coffee Co.
Jimmy’s (Frank and Oak location)
Dark Horse (Spadina location)
Rooster Coffee House
*Dineen (favourite spot!!)
Offsite Concept Space
Strange Love Coffee
*Balzac (Distillery Location)
Reunion Island Coffee (Roncy location)
*Early Bird Coffee + Kitchen
*Momofuko (get the pork buns!!!) + Milk Bar (upstairs. Get the malt chocolate truffles!! omg)
Calii Love (I tried my first Poke bowl, so good!)
*Five Guys (best burger ever!)
*Brunch at the restaurant at The Broadview Hotel
Body Blitz Spa (the water circuit is soo nice)
Reflexology in Chinatown. There are a bunch of places in Chinatown, but the one I went to was on Dundas and it’s right near a set of stairs…vaguest description ever. There’s a sign outside offering an hour of reflexology for $30 (15 mins in a herbal soak, i.e. hot water and a tea bag lol, followed by 45-minute foot massage). You guys, it was amazing!! I would go constantly if I lived here.
PLACES I DIDN’T MAKE IT TO (BUT WANT TO NEXT TIME!)
