“Queen St West, or West Queen West as it's known locally, is Toronto's premier walking street, full of small shops and boutiques, coffee shops and restaurants. It's not a tourist street; it's where Torontonians go to shop and play and live. You could devote an entire visit to just walking Queen Street, from Parkdale in the west, through the shopping district right through downtown. Further east, the neighbourhood of Leslieville offers great restaurants and a friendly vibe. Queen St continues even further east, eventually ending up in the iconic Beach neighbourhood, where the city meets the lake and where each year the Beach Jazz Festival, well jazzes up the scene.”

“Bellwoods Brewery is hands down the best place to sample toronto's local brews. I love their Jelly King Sour beer - they do a few different versions of it - raspberry is the best I've had. If you want a heavier brew - the Witchshark IPA is a winner. The food is very good also. They have a seasonal front patio with communal-style seating. The only issue is because the beer is so tasty - it draws a big crowd - so get there early, especially on a nice day. If you cant get to the restaurant, you can also pick up bottles at the bottle shop open until 11pm.”

“Sneaky Dee's is the quintessential punk dive bar, a longtime institution of Toronto's downtown core that caters to the young and cash-strapped. Though originally established up on Bloor Street, Sneaky Dee's has called Bathurst and College home since 1990, and it's hard to imagine how the neighbourhood without it.”

French Restaurant

“If you want to feel like you're in France in Toronto, Le Select will do that. Servers speak French and food is amazing. I espcially love going for brunch and drinking mimosas. They are also welcoming of kids!”
