The top 10 avocado toast in Toronto

Avocado toast is really having a moment right now, and that's just as true in Toronto as anywhere else. Rich, creamy, nutritious fruit loaded with healthy fat smashed on top of a thick slice of bread is a match made in heaven, not to mention one of the prettiest dishes to grace the menus of cafes and restaurants across the city.

Here are my picks for where to get avocado toast in Toronto.

Early Bird Espresso

Instead of choosing for you, this Queen West cafe lets you decide if you want your avocado beautifully sliced or smashed on your toasted sourdough, finished off with micro greens and seeds.

Kupfert & Kim Bistro

You'll find locations of this meatless and wheatless chain all over Toronto. That means tasty avo toast is never too far away. Seed and oat toast is graciously topped with smashed avocado, cucumber, radish, pickled onion, pomegranate, sunflower parmesan and sea salt.

Sophie's Kitchen

Crushed avocado, heirloom tomato, pesto and chèvre top a toasted baguette for the avocado toast at this Bayview brunch spot. They're open for takeout on weekends.

Nutbar

The adorable cafe with multiple locations is all about smoothies and toasts. While slurping on your green smoothie chow down on their avocado toast with radish, olive oil, lemon juice, nutritional yeast and sea salt.

Brodflour

Liberty Village has this bakery where they mill their own flour to make their own sourdough for avocado toast. Avocado gets mashed and is finished with lemon, salt, ovoo and aleppo pepper.

AM Coffee Studio

The avocado toast at this coffee shop in Roncesvalles Village is almost too pretty to eat. Sliced avocado gets topped with salt, a lemon pepper seasoning, micro green mix and micro cilantro.

Sisters & Co.

Avocado toast is done on French bread covered in cherry tomatoes, and honey truffle chili drizzle at this Dundas West restaurant. It's served with salad and home fries.

Arvo Coffee

The popular cafe with locations in the Distillery District and Liberty Village isn't just serving up caffeinated beverages. A can't miss is their smashed avocado toast that is finished with radish.

iQ Food Co. King West

The health food staple has numerous outposts across the city. Here the avocado toast features avocado smash, lime juice, chili flakes, cilantro, extra virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper on sourdough. You can also have an egg and smoked salmon added.

Versus Coffee

The tiny Financial District cafe serves up a menu of delicious toasts on whole wheat sourdough. Their avocado toast features goat cheese, olive oil, lemon, chili pepper, salt, and pepper. Adding smoked salmon and a poached egg is also an option.
