Where to get a good breakfast/lunch/dinner

on The Danforth

The Danforth is probably best known for the iconic Toronto event ‘Taste of The Danforth.’ Home to one of the largest Greek populations outside of Greece, this part of the city is truly a reflection of multiculturalism in Canada.

What makes the Danforth area most notable is definitely the food. Not only do you have restaurants offering traditional Greek fare, but countless other eateries that capture a little taste of the world in our own backyard.

So how do you enjoy a day of eating on The Danforth?

Breakfast

If you are in the mood for a traditional breakfast, head over to Motorama. Enjoy casual dining surrounded by Greek frescos as you take a bite into a greek omelette. If you are looking for a light bite enjoy a Moto Muffin featuring bacon, eggs and cheese on an english muffin.

Lunch/Brunch

At Fiorentina “Try the quiche made from goat’s cheese, ratatouille and basil in a light pastry.”

After a morning of shopping at the many unique shops along The Danforth, take a break at Fiorentina.
