Restaurant
$$
“The food here is amazing, the only downside is that there are no reservations therefore it's a first come, first serve policy. I advise to come early otherwise be willing to wait 30 min to an hour.”

Bakery

“Phenomenal french bakery with availability for an authentic sit down brunch. Voted the best in the City. Only a 15 minute walk from us.”

Gastropub

“Great food, nice place to have drinks at night. Service not so great, kinda slow. Great music!”
  • 78 locals recommend
Hotel
“The rooftop bar has unparalleled views of the city. The cafe & bar on the ground floor is stunning, reminiscent of a scene from a Beverly Hills noir film that doesn’t exist yet (probably I should just make it).”

Ice Cream Shop
$
“Amazing home made ice cream, gelato and frozen yoghurt. They make season flavours that are fantastic, I wait all year for their fall pumpkin icecream, doubled with the sweet cream flavour. Delicious. The staff is super friendly and patient with the hordes that come in. Small space to eat inside, a couple of benches outside or you can sit in the park nearby or wander the interesting street.”

Rock Club
“For more live music, check out The Opera House in Riverside. Despite the name, the musical acts showcased cover all genres from rock to electronic to hip-hop, and everything in between. Originally it was a Vaudeville theatre, then a cinema, and finally became a venue for live music, and other variety acts. Returning to its roots, the Opera House is a historic and cultural landmark in Toronto. Plus, cheering on your favourite band is so much fun.”
