Here are my picks for the top neighbourhoods for bakeries in Toronto.
Toronto Food Events: Hot & Spicy Food Fest, Midnight MRKT, Toronto Food & Wine Festival, Oktoberfest
- The 18th annual Hot & Spicy Food Festival is on this weekend from September 4 to 7 at the Harbourfront Centre. Admission is free.
- The Steady (1051 Bloor St.) hosts a Customer Appreciation Night on Saturday, September 5 featuring $3 pints of Wellington (while it lasts) and free snacks between 9pm to 11pm followed by a dance party.
The American-based Favour brought its bright blue tuxedo-t-shirt clad troop of "runners" to Toronto on August 27, and they're already scurrying around the downtown core.
- Rickshaw Bar is now open at 685 Queen St. West where Lot St. used to be. Expect a tapas style restaurant with a South/South-East Asian inspired menu.
- New to Kensington Market, Fancy Pig is now open next to Romeo's Juice Bar - the address is 285 Augusta Ave., but it's actually on Oxford. Look forward to $7 barbecue sandwiches available until late on weekends.
- Grey Tiger is finally open at 1190 Bloor St. West serving up toast and coffee by day and vegan snacks and cocktails at night.
- Microtime Cafe, a new 80-seat tapas restaurant and cyber cafe, is now open at 25 Wellesley St. East.
- The Burger's Priest opens its 11th outpost at 3280 Dufferin St. near Yorkdale Mall at 6pm on Saturday, September 5th.
- Front Street Foods Market at Union Station has added a line-up of new vendors including the Loaded Pierogi, Kupfert & Kim, and Come and Get It (to name just a few).
