In collaboration with Porter Airlines, we were treated to a wonderful weekend stay in Toronto, ON this past June. A breathtaking city filled with culinary delights, great architecture and friendly people, it is truly one of the best cities in North America. Allow us to take your on a recap of some of the awesome restaurants and incredible establishments we enjoyed on our weekend getaway. Our aim with these travel guides is for you to choose a weekend, pack a bag and explore new adventures as we provide a list of interesting places for you to navigate. Enjoy!
Porter Airlines has multiple direct flights from Midway to Toronto each day. From gate to gate it literally took us a shorter amount of time to get to Toronto than to our mom's house in the burbs on a Saturday. The best part besides being super easy to get to and out of? It was a 10 minute cab ride to our hotel. Actually, take that back, the best part about Porter Airlines is the free Steam Whistle beer.
Hands down the best drink experience ever. Located on Queens Street West, get a table in back near the wall of bitters and order from the Modernist Cocktail menu. You won't regret it.
Cool Tapas bar located on College St., that offer pastries and coffee in the morning with a nice signature cocktail menu later in the day.
Close to Porter Airlines and Rogers Centre (Blue Jay Way), this hotel is in the perfect location to navigate around the city without a hassle. Very comfortable rooms with heated bathroom floors and good views of the city.
A different twist on coffee drinks and soft serve. Crazy, inventive flavors with a great atmosphere. The lines get long for the ice cream, so get there early.
Insane amounts of craft beers with an amazing menu like these savory garlic doughnuts with Parmesan and bone marrow aioli. On Sundays, the manager spins vinyl from his collection to give it a home like atmosphere.
In the Kensington Market area, This restaurant offers a Canadian spin on chicken and waffles as well as wings and sandwiches. Highly recommend "The ODB" (boneless leg and thigh, waffle with maple syrup and dirty sauce).
Fresh, house made pies (10 signature pizzas also) with Italian sandwiches and heros on the menu. The pizzeria also delivers, so you can order and have it in the comfort of your hotel room.
Bakery on King Street East that specializes in crepes and traditional pastries along with coffee and teas.
Also in the Kensington Market area, this Mexican bar has a lot of great mezcals to go along with small plates of quesadillas and bar snacks like "Cacahuate mix" (Peanuts mixed with tiny grasshoppers).
Skateboard shop on Dundas Street West that carries cool brands such as Palace, Dime and Quartersnacks along with all the decks, wheels and hardware you need.
Microbrew/pub on Ossington Ave with a rotating list of craft beers and seasonal dinner menu that sources its food from local suppliers.
