Niagara Brewing Company, Niagara Falls

Niagara Brewing Company, Niagara Falls

The brews are agreeable but our experience at the Niagara Brewing Company was a frustrating one. It feels like a place that’s efficient and well run, but our food order took over an hour. And when you have only an hour before your tour bus […]

Nadege, Trinity Bellwoods, Toronto

Nadege, Trinity Bellwoods, Toronto

I’m a huge fan of the Trinity Bellwoods area, and if I was looking to reside in Toronto, I’d give that a good go. I had walked past Nadège Patisserie quite a few times over my week in Canada. I’ve always possessed a major sweet tooth […]

Hot Oven Bakery, Roncesvalles Village, Toronto

One of my mornings in Toronto saw me heading along to the Hot Oven Bakery. Established in 1957, there’s a few of these bakeries dotted around Canada. The tourist in me saw it as any other neighbourly bakery mind you, it has a friendly, warm […]

Tim Hortons, Liberty Village, Toronto

Tim Hortons, Liberty Village, Toronto

Like most things I came across in Toronto, I have a real soft spot for Tim Horton’s. I love their long hours, the fact there is one on every corner, and of course, some delightful eating. My other visit to Tim Hortons involved a bacon […]

Amsterdam BrewHouse, Harbourfront, Toronto

Amsterdam BrewHouse, Harbourfront, Toronto

If you’re looking for a lakeside brewery and restaurant hotspot check out the Amsterdam BrewHouse. It’s a staggering 14,000-square foot restaurant that seats over 500 guests. So it’s not a place that you particularly need to book ahead. But it does indeed get busy. We […]

Lit Espresso, Roncesvalles Village, Toronto

Lit Espresso, Roncesvalles Village, Toronto

A good morning is lit up by a good coffee. Roncesvalles Village is such a quaint neighbourhood and so glad my friend resided in such a sweet spot. Today’s coffee was courtesy of Lit Espresso, along with one of their delectable cheesecake brownies. The cafe […]

As could have been anticipated, I had hit up multiple Tim Hortons over the course of my time in Toronto and I can’t say I was ever disappointed! It’s a fan-filled chain that has warmed to the hearts of Canadians and a little piece of […]
