40 restaurants that do their own delivery in Toronto so you don't need to use apps
Restaurants that do their own delivery in Toronto let you support local businesses directly, rather than letting a pretty big portion of your dollar go toward hefty commission fees handed down by delivery apps like Uber Eats.
You might have to pre-order in advance online or over the phone, and pay a little extra for the delivery fee (not all the time), but supporting your favourite establishment directly is worth it.
