Where To Eat Before a Game/Show/Concert

Since I started this blog, one of the most popular questions I get is where to eat before a concert, a Jays/Raptors/Leafs game or a show.  Over the last few years, the dining options in the “Entertainment District” of the city have really grown.  Most recently, Union Station has upgraded its food scene to accommodate…

Dinner at Do Not Disturb (CLOSED)

When someone tells me that I will want to “order everything on the menu”, I can’t help but get a little excited about what’s in store for dinner. Do Not Disturb is appropriately (and hilariously) located inside The Beverley Hotel at Queen and John.  I’ve been to this boutique hotel for drinks on their adorable…

Brunch at La Societe

Recently, I’ve been asked a lot about what new restaurants I’ve tried and it made me realize that I haven’t blogged about an actual restaurant or meal in a really long time. Since it’s a new year I thought it might be good way to get back into the swing of things by posting an…

Brunch at Pray Tell

Oh Brunch.  My most favorite thing about the weekend.  Next to sleeping in of course.  Today’s brunch adventure found me and a friend on College Street for a long overdue catch up which usually means a lot of bitching and dishing about boys.  And this meeting was no exception. Pray Tell has been on my…

Happy Hour at Cafe Cancan

I’m not really sure if summer in Toronto is ever going to make an appearance.  This year I purchased an ACTUAL rain coat because I just couldn’t deal with another day of getting soaked in the rain.  With all this grey and gloominess on the outside, and maybe a little on my insides, I needed…

Lunch at La Palma

Dundas West might slowly be becoming one of my favourite areas of the city.  It’s unassuming, chilled out, unpretentious and home to some of my favourite cocktail bars. The only thing I would change is their weekend opening hours.  How is a girl supposed to get day drunk if you only open at 6!? I…

Breakfast at Simit & Chai Co.

Have you ever been scrolling through your Instagram feed, seen a picture of food and had the reaction “I must have this!”?  So, this happened to me with Simit & Chai Company.  I kept seeing these gorgeous and delicious looking sandwiches on what looked like wider and thinner bagels.  I love me a bagel so…

Brunch at Lena Restaurant

So I’ve realized that I’m making the rounds of some of the most instagramable spots in the city but my no means on purpose.  I feel a ‘best of’ list coming on.  Today’s adventure has me at Lena Restaurant for brunch with some of my fave gals.  It’s a grey and rainy Sunday so I…

Dinner at Oretta

I remember a while ago, I was finding myself at really small, dimly lit, dark places for dinner which was awful for taking pictures but the food was on point.   Now there seems to be a resurgence of more open, brightly lit and larger spaces that are making their rounds on all the “must try”…

Exploring Coffee Shops at Quantum Coffee

Well this might be a first.  I guess I can call this live blogging since I’m currently sitting in Quantum Coffee as we speak.  It’s the Friday of Easter long weekend and I had some work (and blogging) to catch up on so I decided to head out and hit one of the many coffee…
