5 Great Reasons to Visit Toronto
Five reasons to visit, and ten things you can do in Toronto on a fun long weekend trip.
Nosh on Farm-to-Table Delicacies
And even if there isn’t a food-related festival going on at the time you’re visiting, Toronto is a haven for foodies who enjoy eating farm to table food. Here are a few of my favorites:
They describe their place as a little bit country and a lot of rock and roll. As blogTO described in their review, “With a clear attention to detail, the interior is decked out in a farmstead theme. Cow skulls, vintage news clippings, rusted-out license plates, and mismatched tableware tastefully decorate the tavern room. The Farmhouse brings the quiet pace of the countryside to the Junction Triangle, an area otherwise marked by large warehouses, rail lines, and old inner-city industrial relics.”
Lunch at this café is some of the best farm to table food I’ve ever had. Located at the Evergreen Brick Works in Toronto’s lush Don Valley, Cafe Belong has an industrial-modern rustic interior with lots of windows, and offers quick-serve grab & go, table service dining and weekend brunch. My favorite here is their spring into the woods salad, made of mushrooms, onions, asparagus, cheese, and cider vinaigrette.
With a stylist roof deck and a slogan that says, “Think Global. Eat Local,” this place is one of the most posh farm to table restaurants in Toronto. I like that they describe their daily soup, served during dinner, as composed with the bounty of Ontario.
Who would’ve thought Toronto has all these hidden gems? So the next time you’re looking for a vacation destination, look no further, it’s just right next door.
