Toronto's 24-Hour Grocery Stores


So you've planned a huge weekend brunch and have invited everyone you know. By Friday night, you're sure you've got it all covered: the food, the drinks, the tunes...even those horrible little pork rinds that your friend Ryan adores so much.

You wake in the middle of the night with a sense of impending dread, however, as you suddenly realize that you forgot the orange juice. AUGH. It's 2 am. Where on earth are you going to find a grocery store at this time of night/morning?

Don't panic. Toronto's not exactly a 24-hour city, but here's a list of some grocery stores that are open around the clock. (UPDATED with a handy Google Map!)

Thanks so much to Adam Schwabe for putting together a Google Map of all the locations mentioned in this post:
