Need help with 4 night trip to Toronto/NOTL in October

DH and I will be traveling to Toronto the second week of Oct. I've been checking out the boards but there are so many choices. I'll give you a brief run down of our itinerary and what we are looking for, if you would be so kind as to fill in some of the blanks!

Right now we have a hotel room booked in Mississauga, however, I am trying (via Priceline) to find something downtown that will fit our budget. So, any recs in Mississauga might come in handy, but hopefully we will be doing our meals downtown. We will have a car.

Arriving Friday. Looking for a quick lunch - nothing sit down or that will take too long. Want to do a walking tour at 1:00 that leaves from Bannock restaurant. Will end our day at ROM (open to 8:30 on Fridays). Need a rec for dinner. Was thinking of Fieramosca Trattoria?? We love Italian.

Saturday's agenda def includes St. Lawrence Mkt. Here's where I want to go at the Market but let me know if I'm missing anything:
Carousel Bakery
Olympic Cheese
Schefflers Deli
El Gaucho Chorizos
Will eat lunch here. Are there tables to sit at within the market or outside of the market? I'm also hoping to go to Kernels Popcorn and Soma Chocolatemaker. Any other specialty stores in the area?

We will end our day Saturday in the Distillery District. Need a rec for dinner.

Sunday means a good breakfast/brunch. No clue on where to go for this?? We have a walking tour booked at 10:00 that leaves from the AGO and ends in Chinatown. I've always wanted to try a good place for Dim Sum? We want to go to Castle Loma, CN Tower, etc. Also need dinner rec.

Monday we are planning on a day trip to NOTL and possibly the Falls. Any suggestions for lunch and dinner will be appreciated. Also, any specialty food shops along the way? What about wineries?

Tuesday we will do some shopping (Eaton Centre?) We are leaving Tuesday afternoon. Am thinking about Il Fornello for a $10 pizza (their Tuesday special) before we hit the road.

What I want to accomplish: a good bahn mi sandwich, a good burger (Burger's Priest?), a few nice sit down dinners, maybe a good diner, and some yummy Chinese food!

I know this was a very long thread. Thanks for reading!
