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…

The Bean Blog – 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…

The Bean Blog – 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…

Alo

It was a cold, rainy (maybe romantic?) and wet Thursday when I found myself in the cozy, candlelit bar of Alo.  A few good friends and I had just finished a gluttonous dinner of authentic Chinese food and we were looking for a place to indulge in a few tasty libations.  We started to make…

The Bean Blog – Rooster Coffee

I had an idea.  I have the opportunity with my full-time job to work a few days from home and instead of sitting at my dining table in my pyjamas, I thought, “why not go to coffee shops in the city and write about them?” Yes that is exactly how I think. And so this…

Amsterdam Brewhouse

It’s officially August which means that our Canadian Summer is slowly coming to an end.  My fingers are crossed on the warm weather carrying over in September since itI feel like I haven’t really had a chance to ENJOY the summer.  So in continuing my Patio Pursuits series I’ve been trying to suggest places with…

The Spoke Club

This one will be a quick one in an effort to keep up with my Patio series.  You can see I’m serious about this one 🙂  I don’t head up to the Spoke Club very often but every now and then one of my friends with a membership takes me there for some bevvies.  Have…

The Walton

Sigh, that inevitable smell of summer.  A mix of sunscreen, ice cream and sweat all rolled into one.  Which also means its time for patios to dust off their benches and tables and get ready for the swing of Torontonians looking to get day drunk while enjoying the outdoors. This week has been surprisingly above…

Weslodge

You might know it as Weslodge or you might know it as that place on King West with the big, bright yellow doors.  Either way there’s no way you haven’t noticed this quaint, saloon inspired resto-lounge.  I’ve been a few times moreso for drinks and to be honest, the menu never appealed to me.  …

Bar Raval – Eat On Your Feet

If you’re like me then you thrive on having your finger on the pulse of everything new in the city.  I have an ongoing list I keep on my phone of all the new bars and restaurants I want to try and it seems like I can never keep up. Shockingly I was able to…

Discovering Distillery – Pure Spirits & Boiler House –

I officially LOVE the Distillery District. From the cobblestone streets to the twinkling lights in the trees and the live jazz music playing in the center of the square, it truly is a little piece of Toronto which is probably so underappreciated but has so much charm and personality. Depending on how you choose to…

Discovering Liberty Village – Brazen Head & Caffino

The feeling I had this past Friday night was exactly what I was hoping for when I set out on this journey and writing this blog. I said I wanted to discover and explore Toronto and so, I’m amazed when I uncover an area which up to now has been completely unknown. I always knew…
