Montreal to Toronto, looking for good food palces
I will be coming to Toronto for this long weekend. Mississauga is the destination but I will be going places. I will be with my gf. Its not my first time.
I am looking for some good suggestions for brunch, lunch and dinner. There are tons I know, but someone's recommendation is always valuable :)
I definitely want to try something better than Chez Cora or Eggspectations for brunch!
$15-30 a person puts you at a low end for lunch and dinner. OK for brunch. For the latter I would not waste my money on Cora's, Eggspectations and their like.
Some main meal suggestions at this price point, excluding seafood and Japanese food, would include -
Archeo - comfort/Italian food in Distillery District
Wheezie's - King St E. (unpretentious bistro)
Rosedale Diner - Yonge @ Summerhill (eclectic)
Toro - Augusta St, Kensington Market (Tapas)
Il Fornello - various locations, mid-scale Italian/pizza modern vibe
Gilead - lunch place by famous chef, affordable, Liberty Village
Astoria or one of the other souvlaki houses on the Danforth. (There is a Mississauga branch a lot less crowded though also with less atmosphere.)
Le Petit Dejeuner - King St E near Jarvis
Bonjour Brioche - Queen St just E of Broadview
I think Torito is in Kensington Market and Gilead Cafe is close to Distillery District instead of near Liberty Village. Just in case the OP search for these places.
For mid-price Italian, I will throw in Mercatto (various location). Second the Le Petit Dejeuner recommendation. For breakfast, Aunties and Uncles on College St is very famous.
