Leslie Jones

1182 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4M 1L4

With so many choices on the menu, it’s impossible to confine this restaurant into any one food category. Each dish is presented like a work of art, so you might feel a tad guilty about digging into such a masterpiece. But, the tantalizing aroma will soon get the better of you and you'll love the amazing flavours that follow. In warmer weather, eat outside on the patio. And, when the mercury drops, the votive candles on each table provide a cozy atmosphere.

Chino Locos Tasty Good Buritos

4 Greenwood Ave, Toronto, ON M4L 2P4

Have you ever tried a burrito stuffed with noodles? If not, you need to make your way down to Greenwood and Queen before chef and owner Minh La sends his masked staff after you. It’s Mexican cuisine with a strong Asian influence, making their burritos among the best you’ll find in Toronto. They offer gluten-free options, and there’s also a weekly Loco special where they kick things up a sizzling notch.

Eastside Social

1008 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4M 1K1

From the midnight blue walls to the nautical touches, this Maritime-themed restaurant will make you feel like you’re on the Atlantic Coast rather than the shores of Lake Ontario. The food is rustic and hearty, and there are plenty of options for vegetarians. Start off with home-baked bread that’s made fresh daily and add warm, marinated olives. To follow, opt for either devilled eggs or the “chunk o' cheese” – or both, if you’re really hungry.

Starter & Main

913 Queen St E, Main, Toronto, ON M4M 1J4

Two brothers took over a gas station and created a rural-styled country store and kitchen, with food that’s out-of-this-world good. They’ve got a full menu selection of starters, sandwiches, sides and extras. Meatless choices include the Veginator sandwich (smoked sweet onions, roasted red peppers, grilled zucchini, Portobello mushrooms and avocado sauce), egg white breakfast sandwich and toasted bagels with cream cheese. And, if you need gas once you’re done eating, fill up for two cents cheaper than the competition.

Just because you don't eat meat doesn't mean you can't eat a great burger. At these Victoria restaurants you'll find unique and delicious veggie burgers that may even convert the carnivores in your dining party.
Those who can’t have gluten can sometimes struggle to find good eats, but that’s rarely an issue in Victoria. Here, gluten-free cooking has been welcomed with open arms, and those who can’t have gluten can find a wide range of foods to enjoy. From fresh-baked treats to home-style pizzas, these restaurants offer all of the flavour, with none of the gluten.
Thirsty? Sure, you could reach for a sugary soda or lean on the caffeine crutch of coffee, but why not treat your body (and your taste buds) to something better? Packed with energy-enhancing nutrients and bursting with fresh flavours, a healthy jolt of juice may be the answer. Find it at one of these fine local juice bars.
