Our business takes us from High Park to Leslieville on a near-daily basis, and we’re fortunate to be able to experience the newest, coolest restaurants in many of Toronto’s best ‘hoods.Here are our favourite discoveries of the BREL Summer of ’13.
Starving Artist Waffle Espresso Bar in Bloordale Waffle covered bacon - need we say more? Pretty much everything on the menu involves waffles. Brilliant.
Two Bite Saloon in Christie Pitts Hands down our favourite place for sliders - try the fried chicken slider, the original slider and the pulled pork slider. Great beer selection too
Burgernator in Kensington Market They take their burgers seriously, and so do we. May we recommend the Atomic Burger, complete with a slab of herb-crusted deep-fried cheese and sun-dried tomato aioli.
Mill Street Beer Hall in the Distillery District Brought to you by the good folks who run the Mill Street Brewery and pub, their newest venture has an unbelievable patio space. Menu is a bit random, but the beers are delish!
Rashers in Leslieville Billed as North America's only restaurant dedicated to BACON, how could we resist? It didn't disappoint.
Tall Boys Craft Beer House in Christie Pitts Don't be put off by the fact that all of the beer comes in cans - one of the best random craft beer selections in the city.
The Guild in Brockton Village Just 'round the corner from our house at Dundas and Dufferin, this isn't just a feast for your belly, it's a feast for your eyes too.
WVRST in King West Village Yes, a whole restaurant dedicated to sausage, beer and fries - the closest thing in T.O to a real German beer hall.
Bakerbots in Christie Pitts Made-to-order ice cream sandwiches. So delicious they inspired us to buy an ice cream maker and make our own (which were not nearly as good).
Hogtown Cure Deli & Cafe in Brockton Village Part deli, part cafe, the Hogtown Cure has a fine selection of breakfast and lunch options - including custom grilled cheeses made from any of their cheese selections.
