Take one step into any of these showrooms and you'll be singing "I'm gonna swing from the chandelieeer!"

The Best Calzone (Panzerotti) in Toronto

Posted by Liora Ipsum / August 15, 2014

Calzone torontoThe best calzone in Toronto might not have the same cachet as its brethren, pizza - but in many ways, it's far superior. Whether baked into a calzone, or fried as a panzo, not only are these pizza pockets ultra-filling, but they contain a higher concentration of marinara and gooey cheese - while still being handheld and compact.

The Best Self Storage in Toronto

Posted by Chris Bateman / August 12, 2014

Self Storage TorontoSelf storage solutions in Toronto will save you from overflowing closets, being surrounded by stacks of important paperwork, or even allow you to squirrel away the contents of a family home if necessary. There are dozens of storage companies that will gladly keep your precious belongings safe from intruders, pests, and the ravages of winter ice storms or summer heat waves. The price you pay typically varies by size, features, and location: downtown units are unsurprisingly more expensive than ones in the suburbs.

Most self storage companies in Toronto also charge a mandatory monthly insurance premium, a set-up fee or refundable deposit. Because the billing period varies between companies, I've included an average price per day for a typical 50 square foot unit, which should make it clearer how much each charges to keep your stuff safe. Prices listed here do not include HST or any special offers, of which there are many available.

Here are the best self storage solutions in Toronto.
