Ed's Real Scoop

Ice Cream Shop 路 The Beach

When I feel really shitty, I go here, get an ice cream and then walk on the Boardwalk. It's quite lovely. They've got a few locations around the city but this one is the coolest because of the location.

Evergreen Brick Works

Historic Site 路 Leaside-Bennington

Got married here. Highly recommend. Hikes and Saturday Farmer's Market are pretty great too.

Bandit Brewery

Brewery 路 Old Toronto

It's just nice to be outside on their pretty patio drinking beer.

Superpoint

Pizza Place 路 Trinity Bellwoods

Pizza and pasta. Food's pretty good but it's a vibe I enjoy.

Superpoint

Maker Pizza

Pizza Place 路 Kensington-Chinatown

Likely best take-home pizza in Toronto. Pretty expensive fwiw but I miss the food here.

Utopia Cafe & Grill

American Restaurant 路 Palmerston鈥揕ittle Italy

I just went here a lot growing up. Would eat a lot of burritos and nachos here. It's vegan too.

St. Lawrence Market (North Building)

Farmers Market 路 Waterfront Communities-The Island

I live nearby and we get a lot of our groceries here. It's quite scenic and the people are cool. Probably best access to fresh fish in the city.

Bar Isabel

Tapas Restaurant 路 Trinity Bellwoods

One of my old favourite places to go with Jo before they took all the good items off the menu. Someday I hope they'll bring the fried chicken, squid, and ceviche dishes back. But alas.

Bar Isabel

Robinson Bread

Bakery 路 Old Toronto

Sourdough here is crazy. IMO best in Toronto.

Giulietta

Italian Restaurant 路 Old Toronto

Everyone has their own Italian places but this is my favourite. It's pretty fancy but I really enjoy it.

Giulietta

Blackbird Baking Co

Bakery 路 South Riverdale

This is one of my favourite places to get sourdough. They started in Kensington market and have expanded a bunch in the past few years. I prefer this one because I usually run by it.

Seven Lives - Tacos y Mariscos

Mexican Restaurant 路 Kensington-Chinatown

This is another Kensington tacos place but the line is usually ridiculous and the prices are a lot higher than they should be. Nonetheless, everyone in Toronto loves it.

El Trompo

Mexican Restaurant 路 Kensington-Chinatown

The first Mexican restaurant in Toronto apparently. Actual Mexican food not made by some bros or marketing firm with crazy flavours. It's also pretty cost-effective.
