Toronto is bursting at the seams with restaurants and cafes that feature stunning interiors. But have you ever looked at the floor? It seems to be the new trend on Instagram, as feeds get filled with strategically placed coffee cups and fancy shoes shown off against funky floor backdrops.

This King West poke restaurant greets you with an "aloha" when you walk in the front door. Even though the tiled floor is on the outside of the restaurant, people can frequently be seen taking photos on the outdoor stoop.
