Montreal hounds coming to Toronto next week for a couple months. We are two students who will be working in Toronto for the summer. I've been perusing this board for a couple weeks now and feel so overwhelmed with all the possibilities.
We will be staying on Bay and Gerrard and will have access to a kitchen. Kensington market sounds very exciting and I will hopefully go often to pick up stuff for dinner. Is there another market around that I also should be looking into?
We usually spend our money on brunch as it let's us enjoy restaurants we couldn't afford for dinner service. I would love a couple high end brunch ideas (but under 80$ for two) and a couple lower end recommendations.
I saw that Splendido has a 35$ brunch, is it worth it?
We are also looking for less expensive (under 35$ for two) places where we can pick up dinner and bring back to the apartment to eat. We love dives, diners and homemade comfort food.
We are also looking for one nice celebratory dinner at a more upscale place that won't break the bank (under 150$ for two).
Some restaurants in Montreal offer a special after 9 or 10pm where the menu is much cheaper, is this also available in Toronto?
Will we be able to find food trucks in our neighbourhood? Are there any we should go out of the way to try? We have no mexican options back home so we are looking forward to trying some over here.
Lastly, we are looking for a bakery that has good desserts and a fun ice cream shop.
We won't have a car, but are use to taking public transportation.
A big thank you in advance!
