Top 10 Toronto Restaurants

Living in the heart of downtown Toronto definitely has its perks. I love being able to walk down the street to some of my favourite restaurants and cafes. Toronto is full of some of the best restaurants in the world, and I love exploring a new spot everyday. Here is a list of my favourite places. Just a warning though, I do on King St W so obviously a lot of my list is in that area.

Here are some of my favourite restaurants and cafes in Toronto!

If you want to run in and grab a coffee or macaron to go, or sit down and have brunch or dinner, this place has it all.

Pizza, pasta and really great mixed drinks are my favourite here.

I come here every Sunday to pick up fresh pizza dough to make homemade pizza...and let's be honest the bakery and bread is next level. I can't leave here without picking up a treat.

Oretta is a new restaurant along King St. W and is quickly became a fan favourite because of the beautiful decor. Not to mention a delicious lunch and wine menu!

Pizza, pizza and more pizza!!

The most delicious Moroccan food in Toronto! Don't forget to enter my B'Saha giveaway (here)

What can I say? I really like pizza.

The most amazing vegan restaurant and most picture perfect place.

The brunch is so good, but I'm also obsessed with their burger for lunch or dinner....sometimes even breakfast....oops.

A place where I can get my nails done and a delicious latte all at the same time? Yes please.

I would love to here what some of your favourite restaurants are in the city!? I'm always looking to explore new places :)

B'Saha Moroccan Restaurant

Every weekend my boyfriend and I love to explore the different restaurants in Toronto. The city of Toronto is full of restaurants and some of the greatest ones in the world. This past weekend my boyfriend and I decided we should try Moroccan. B'Saha is a new Moroccan restaurant along the cute shops and restaurants on College St. We initially fell in love with the restaurant because of the adorable decor and flavourful food. We honestly just kept ordering more and more sides because everything tasted fresh and so delicious.

Right away I was intrigued with the Avocado/Date shake on the menu and it was quite possibly the best shake I've ever tasted. I loved it so much, I tried to replicate the shake at home but failed miserably. I guess I will just have to go to B'Saha everyday to get my fix.

Love the quaint, Moroccan inspired decor.

My favourite thing on the menu is Tagine. Tagine is something you have to order 25h in advance as they cook the meat to perfection. You can seriously taste the time and quality that went into making the food. You can choose between lemon chicken, beef, lamb, veggie plate and meatballs. I went with the Kefta Meatballs and they were the best meatballs I've ever tasted. The cooked egg in the middle made it even better. The combination with the egg and meatballs was unlike anything I've tasted before!

I fell in love with this restaurant and food so much I decided to team up with B'Saha and giveaway $10 to B'Saha through UberEATS. Find out more over on my Instagram.

Valentine's Day Treats

 It's no surprise I'm a huge holiday fan, and obviously I love to decorate my home for every holiday.  I feel like every week I'm always re-doing something. The other day I had my mom and sisters over, so I thought I would have a little Valentine's Day treat get-together!!

 Krispy Kreme always has the best holiday doughnuts.

 Nothing makes me happier than walking into my house full of flowers.

Valentine's Day Breakfast

I always love to make breakfast on Valentine's Day and making anything heart shaped makes me so happy. I know you can buy certain cookware that is heart shaped, so you can easily cook or bake everything into hearts, but I just used a heart cookie cutter. I just picked this up at the dollar store to make my heart shaped pancakes. I cook my pancakes first, let them cool and cut my hearts. It's so simple and looks so freaking adorable. Feel free to add chocolate chips and finish with a dusting of icing sugar...and syrup of course!!
