Open now
  • Brickworks Ciderhouse, the country's first urban cider house, is now open at 709 Queen St. E. (at Broadview) in Riverside.
  • Specializing in craft brews, Bar Hop has opened another location (its third, including Brewco), this time on the east side at 681 Danforth Ave. (just east of Pape).
  • More brews: The Six Brewing Co., a brewhouse, bottle shop and brewery, has made its debut at 777 Dundas St. W. (at Markham) in the space that formerly belonged to Bent.
  • Wasted Youth has taken over Less Bar at 834 Bloor St. W. in Bloorcourt. It's run by Mike Taylor, who was the bar manager at Wolf Like Me, which occupied the same space before Less Bar and Homestand.
  • Labothéry, a "lab-themed tea cafe," is now open at 717 Bay St., just north of Gerrard St. W.
  • Hero Certified Pizza, a new pizza concept from Hero Certified Burgers, has launched at 90 Weston Rd. in the Stockyards District with personal-sized mini pizzas for $3.25 (amongst other offerings). Another location is forthcoming at Bayview & York Mills.

Opening soon
  • Baddies, Bloordale's favourite Aussie-style cafe and brunch spot, will be opening a coffee and doughnut shop named Cops at King & Portland downtown this spring. It will only serve drip coffee. No espresso. (Have you ever seen a cop order a latte? Me neither.)
  • Sukoshi Mart, a Japanese-style convenience store that will offer all sorts of snacks like onigiri and taiyaki, will soon be opening in a small space at 160 Baldwin St. in Kensington Market. Anyone who's ever visited a Lawson, FamilyMart or 7-Eleven in Japan knows that this is the best idea ever.
