Toronto is a foodie’s utopia; discover this delicious city one bite at a time.

Toronto is celebrated as one of the world’s most multicultural cities. Add an adventurous spirit of culinary fusion to the mix and you have possibly the best place on the planet for people who love good food and drink.

Replace a passport with an appetite as you graze your way around the world from Greektown to Chinatown and Little India to Little Italy. Enjoy the hearty Canadiana brunch at the Farmhouse Tavern and whimsical fusion fare at Reverie at the Park. Nosh like a local; sign up for a guided foodie tour of the hip Riverside and Leslieville ‘hoods with Culinary Adventure Company. Take time to appreciate the flourishing craft brew culture and definitely leave room for your sweet tooth. You can’t toss a toonie in this town without hitting a cool little craft brewery, home style bakery or artisanal café. In between amazing meals, enjoy boutique digs and rooftop cocktail hour at the recently transformed Broadview Hotel (a 127 year old landmark), the chill waterside vibe at the Harbourfront, explosions of fall colour at the Evergreen Brick Works and a pulsing live music and art scene at the Drake Underground.

Plan around some of the exciting events taking place this season that celebrate culture, film, art, famous people, but most importantly, food and drink! Think the Toronto International Film Festival (Sept 6-16), all-night art party, Nuit Blanche (Sept 29) and Toronto Beer Week (Sept 14-22). Celebrate the versatile garlic at the Toronto Garlic Festival (Sept 16) and satisfy your fall season soup craving at the Toronto Soup Festival (Oct 20-21).
