If you have a long weekend and want a true taste of all things Toronto, here's a hit list that covers it all. Food, drink, art, culture, history and fun . . . the only thing missing is you!
Rush Lane, Toronto, ON M5V, Canada
By far one of the coolest things about Toronto is their incredible graffiti art that adorns some of their alleys. I read about this before going, and was absolutely amazed at what I was able to find. After talking to the fellows in this photo,...
326 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON M5S 1W5, Canada
If you find yourself in Toronto and have a hankering for some seriously good vegetarian or vegan cuisine, might I suggest you get 'Fresh.' There are a few locations throughout the city, but the kitschy spot above is on Bloor Street. Featuring a...
626 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6J 1E4, Canada
We actually came across the place accidentally. Just wandering down Queen Street one day, we noticed the clapboard out front with chalk stating that we should come in from the cold. Well all right then, let's go, we thought. Upon entering we were...
The Distillery District, Toronto, ON M5A, Canada
It doesn't take long for a visitor to realize that most of Toronto's activities focus around eating and drinking. A visitor may also notice the stark architecture that competes for space in the sky. Many of Toronto's older buildings aren't...
634 Church St, Toronto, ON M4Y 2G3, Canada
Downtown? Brunch? Unique? Cozy? Bloody Mary or Mimosa? I would like to select 'all of the above.' With almost everything being made in-house, and obviously boasting uber-fresh ingredients, Lola's Kitchen is exactly what you are seeking on the food...
99 Yorkville Ave, Toronto, ON M5R 1C1, Canada
Wanna feel like a god for a day? Take your significant other to THIS place and you will earn said title. As we were wandering the streets of Yorkville, she said it'd be really great if we 'found a cute little chocolate shop.' Suddenly, we came...
121 Yorkville Ave, Toronto, ON M5R 1C4, Canada
The Oxley is your typical British gastropub brought to you by Jameson Kerr (of Queen and Beaver and Crush) and is making the posh Yorkville nabe more approachable. Thus, it caught me off guard that I'd have such a great burger here. Hand chopped,...
4 Avenue Rd, Toronto, ON M5S 2C7, Canada
Most visitors to Toronto experience a view of the city FROM the CN Tower. However, if you want to mix it up a bit, while having a nice mixed drink I might add, then you can switch it up a bit. If you make a visit to The Roof Lounge located in the...
100 Queens Park, Toronto, ON M5S 2C6, Canada
The name pretty much says it all. The unique aspect of this museum, which somewhat sets it apart, is the incredibly unique architectural design of the building itself. Boasting a flood of natural light, the effect upon entering is quite dramatic....
75 Yorkville Ave, Toronto, ON M5R 1B8, Canada
It's cozy, romantic, is located in a cute house, has Italian food, and a wine list that compliments it all. Simply put, if you happen to be in the Yorkville area of Toronto and you want authentic Italian food, this is your place.
