Best Restaurants to Watch the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Toronto

From June 12 to July 13th, Torontonians will have just one thing on their minds: 32 countries competing for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. But where are the best places to watch the games? I’ve scoured the city for restaurants with the best coverage of all of the matches. In addition to offering live broadcasts of the games, many of these restos will also have daily specials, prizes and other extras during World Cup.

Cafe Diplomatico

594 College St, Toronto, ON M6G 1B3

Café Diplomatico is celebrating the World Cup big time. Kicking off the games on June 12th, Sportsnet 590 The Fan will be live on location with Norm Rumack from 11 am-3 pm. Then from June 13-17, they’re extending their patio by 250 seats! In between, they’ve got two Sony 4K 80” TVs with a chance to win a Sony 4K 40” TV, celebrations for Puma Day, Amsterdam Day & Sony Day, and a Final Game Street Party on Sunday July 13 from noon to midnight.

Tapas At Embrujo

97 Danforth Ave, Toronto, ON M4K 1N2

On Friday June 13th, Tapas at Embrujo launches their new Tapas Bar Lounge on the lower level, just in time to cheer on Spain on their quest for a third straight World Cup! Stay cool as the games heat up with great tapas and sangrias. Doors open at 2:30pm. Go La Furia Roja!

Sitting on the dock of the bay, or a patio downtown, or in the cool comfort of an air conditioned restaurant, nothing says summertime like fish and chips. Here are the city’s top 5 spots:
We are so fortunate in Toronto that we don’t have to wait for TIFF to arrive to get a sneak peek of Hollywood elite, supermodels and their ilk. If you want to star-gaze and get up close to celebs, head to these top 5 eateries in the city for VIPs and superstars.
One of the best ways to spend a summer evening is to catch a show. Whether you’re going out to a big theatre production such as Newsies or Kinky Boots, or you’re heading off to hear a performance by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Canadian Opera Company or Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra & Chamber Choir, you’re going to want to eat beforehand.
