Best Sangria Spots in Toronto

I was just wondering what are some of the best places to get sangria in Toronto. I've read other posts that all seem to recommend Torito in Kensington Market, but surely there are more?

  1. I've had nice sangria moments are MoMo's in the Annex (on Harbord). Although I haven't had it there, apparently Brownstone's sangria is good and they have a nice patio.

      I tried the sangria there yesterday---maybe it's me because I like my sangria a bit sweeter but I found it to be merely OK. At least it wasn't nasty like the stuff I tried at Southern Accents a month ago. That was horrible.

    2. Nyood has some interesting sangrias...white ones, rose ones and red ones.

        Alot of places on college sell it by the pitcher. These are the most recent ones i've tried:
        Best pricepoint - nirvana - 15 bucks a pitcher
        Best fruits - kalendar - they add mandarins and apples
        Best wine flavour (and buzz)- Cafe Diplimatico - they add frozen fruits. Yummy!

      2. I'm no expert, but can tell you that I've had sangria at Torito a couple of times and, though it was pleasant-tasting and not overly sweet (a big bonus for me) it seemed a touch watery and not too aloholic.

        1. One of my absolute favourites, the Queen Mother, has good white wine sangria, but it's not cheap at $30/carafe. I also like 7 Numbers on the Danforth (which has received inconsistent reviews here, though I've only had good experiences).

          If you want cheap, go to the Green Room or Nirvana for $16/pitcher. Avoid the Red Room (same owners) which has inexplicably terrible service.

          1. Boulevard Cafe has red and white sangrias and a lovely patio on which to sip them.

              Heartily seconded! Love Boulevard Cafe -- a pitcher of sangria on the patio is a wonderful way to spend an evening.

              Milagro has an interesting variety of sangrias, including a watermelon sangria. Their traditional sangria isn't as sweet as most, but it probably keeps me from drinking it as quickly.

              Chimichange (at Yonge and Eg) also has good sangria.

              None of the above are cheap -- all over $30 per pitcher. But a nice alternative to a bottle of wine.

                i third boulevard cafe! though i haven't gone in the past year, i do recall some nice fruit in their sangrias that made it even better, and of course, the patio is lovely.
