Toronto’s West Queen West offers eclectic mix of cuisines

As the gentrification of Queen Street has slowly crept westward, taking over beloved neighbourhoods and filling them with multinational chain restaurants and ho-hum cafes, the real innovators have been creeping westward, too. Here, on West Queen West, you’ll find some old favourites and some new names to satisfy your appetite. Read on to find some of the top picks.

Bolt Fresh Bar

1170 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6J 1J5

Bolt Fresh Bar is the perfect place to head to, for your post-workout meal. This vegan place makes surprisingly satisfying salads and grain bowls, and if you include one of their delicious (and original!) smoothies, you won’t have to worry about cravings for hours.

Fonda Lola

942 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6J 1G8

Fonda Lola is all about authentic and traditional Mexican food with local and ethically sourced ingredients. This is a perfect place to stop for tacos, especially if you’re vegetarian, given that the menu is very veg-friendly.

Come And Get It Restaurant

676 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6J 1E5

Come and Get It is a fun place to grab lunch, dinner or late night snacks, if you want things done your way. The menu works like this: pick the flavours from the list of choices (like Hawaiian Pork Belly or Mango Jerk Chicken), and choose the format (slider, taco…you get the point), and they do the rest. What a great idea.

1128 Queen St W, Main, Toronto, ON M6J 1J3
