Queen Street West x Eats

In today’s blog post, I’ve put together some of my new favorite places (at the moment!) to eat and drink. The neat thing about these places is that aside from the great food selection, they also have great ambiance and a hip enough vibe to keep reeling me in.


So it’s 10:30 am and you’ve finally woken up because it’s a Saturday and you’re allowed to sleep in (duh). Buuuttt you still need that cup of coffee to pick yourself up so you can make it through your day. Early Bird Coffee and Kitchen is the place to be! With hanging plants and cacti that run vertically down the walls along with a GORGEOUS pink walled patio, this newly renovated cafe is modern, hip and definitely California-vibin’. Meanwhile, their coffee is carefully measured and made to a T. While I didn’t grab anything from their food menu, I glossed over it and it sounds like brunch would’ve been a delicious affair. I didn’t grab food here because I was craving for the tacos at The Dime. More on that below!

Now that you’ve covered those morning yawns, you need to take care of that growling belly! But where? The Dime on Queen! That’s right, everything is as cheap as a dime. But really, every item on the menu is $4.95 and it’s gonna fill you up good (especially the burgers that come with peppered fries -mmm). And what’s even better is that on weekends, they serve up brunch and everything on that menu is, you guessed it, also $4.95! Hip patio, cheap food, great portions, and great tasting food! what more could you ask for??!!

After all that shopping and roaming around Queen Street West, you’ll probably want a quick snack. So next up, Soufi’s Syrian Restaurant. This family run restaurant is Toronto’s first Syrian resto-cafe, serving up their two specialties: a wide selection of mana’eesh (flatbread) and knaffeh (cheese and phyllo pastry dessert). Ranging from $5-$7, this light snack will surely satisfy your dessert craving.

    I’m not from TO but was there a few weeks ago and had an fabulous experience at El Catrin in the Distillery District. Food was amazing and atmosphere was awesome. We comfortably sat outside on Thanksgiving weekend with the help of their fab heaters. Patio is open until the end of December. Check it out!
