If you need a good coffee this could be your match! They roast and grind they're beans in house which is a more traditional way to sell coffee. They have many varieties and also sell they're coffee wholesale. Great place if you like an ethical coffee experience.

For all you vegetarians.... I know a place ! It's not a new place, but it certainly is an awesome place. That's right, Fresh on Bloor was created and founded in the Annex and now is a small chain of vegan restaurants in the city. And might I add its soooooo good. I love having the vegan burger when I'm there but also just about any bowl is delish! Please go check this gem out!

Well as you know, weed is now legal and lots of people want to know. Where can I get some? On harbord is a coffee shop called CAFE that has some great pastries and coffee but also dispenses medicinal and recreational marijuana and edibles. Good clean place... You might want to check it out even if your not buying DRUGS. (AND PLEASE, NO SMOKING IN THE FLAT).

Mama mia!!! This is by far the best pizza in the neighborhood (if not, the city!!!) The owner Alessandro is directly from Napoles and I think when he came over here from Italy he brought this magical oven that makes pizza perfection!!! The pizza is a thin crust with very authentic toppings that very few can actually make. I love that this place is in the neighborhood. :) PS they have good grappa and great staff too.

24 hour hungry? One of the most iconic greasy spoons in the city. Here you can have just about any breakfast, lunch or dinner meals you can think of at any time of the day. The short order cook will whip it up for you right on the spot! Be sure to ask for the coffee, its always fresh. Prices are decent, but they only accept cash. I think they have an atm in the basement in case you forgot to bring some.

Drinks & Nightlife
This bar is a great place for they're cheap $6 meal menu and for the young vibrant crowd it attracts! It has a great social energy with fun music and videos! The staff is always friendly and always looking to take care of you. Its pretty busy every night of the week. So, if you need some action... go there!

One of my favorite spots in the Annex! Very good spot for food and drinks. Is casual and very hip. the staff is amazing and the energy is always fun. They have a real mix of music to enjoy will you dine there. Or you can just park it at the bar and meet some locals or out-of-towners. The late night menu is probably one of the best in the city, serving till late.

Like beer? Need something more crafty than the average? This place it the answer! They have like a bagillian beers on tap. Not to mention some great cocktails and food. Place does get busy on the weekends but it's overall a great place to meet up for a brew. They usually have the Leafs and Raptors games on so come with your jersey on. Definitely a part of the local Annex strip of bars and restaurants.

This is a staple on the Annex strip for its live music concerts and dancecave nightclub. Tonnes of up and coming and indie live bands and artists have performed here. The Annex comes alive when the tour buses are parked out front and people are lined up looking to get in to check out the show.

Wow, what can I say about this place other than EXCELENT COLLECTION!!! This place has some amazing POP culture contemporary pieces of art that simply blew me away. I haven't seen such a great curated collection in one location in a long time. Most art galleries don't even come close. The place houses mainly the private collection of the owner but theres also alot of other stuff on consignment. Masters like Warhol, Murakami, and Raushenberg and several other local up and coming artists. This is a MUST CHECK OUT PLACE! P.S. If your planning to buy, bring at least a couple thousand with you.

I usually don't like to recomend too many museums in Toronto but this one is definitly unique and very cool. They have an amazing collection of over 13,000 items. Here you can be inspired by art, fashion, culture, and history in one visit. I also believe its the only one like it in North America. Definitely worth the visit.

Parks & Nature
Christie Pitts is the ultimate tobogganing experience in the winter! Walk over there with the kids and enjoy a few hours of super sledding! It's cheap and easy to do and I highly recommend it if you would like to embrace the Canadian outdoors! They even have an outdoor skating rink if you want to pick up a game of hockey. In the summer you can totally take advantage of the baseball diamond, soccer fields, playground, and public swimming pool. Or just people watch on the giant grassy slopes and get a tan!

High Park is a municipal park in Toronto. It spans 161 hectares, and is a mixed recreational and natural park, with sporting facilities, cultural facilities, educational facilities, gardens, playgrounds and a zoo. One third of the park remains in a natural state, with a rare oak savannah ecology. Definitely a great escape into nature just inside the city!

Getting Around
Super easy to use and super quick to access the subway or streetcar going any which way into the city! Most tourist tourist attractions can be accessed from there within about 20 minutes. Highly recommend this station to avoid traffic on the roads. The city of Toronto also has a bike rentals station set up just outside of it, in case your feeling a little more eco-friendly.

Sightseeing
Still one of the great wonders of the modern world... i believe. The CN tower is by far one of best places to see the whole city, get some great pics and hang out! I've been living here for 30+ years and I still get excited to go up that elevator!! I would highly recommend you go early enough when there's daylight to see the whole city and leading into dusk when the lights of Toronto fill the city sky at night!

Casa Loma is a great place to see some medieval artifacts and enjoy some history! In the day, this castle has a walking tour of all the rooms and dungeons and even the towers and the garden! At night they have a cool steakhouse called Blue Blood that sits inside one of the grand rooms. In October they host a really cool Haunted house that is great to visit. Worth checking out while staying in the hood!

OMG! I love to go to this place. Something about going to the aquarium that brings you to another place. The aquarium is well designed and flows really well in the space. They have many large and small species of fish to see. From fresh water to tropical they got it all. I highly recomend going before or after your visit to the CN Tower.

This place is not your ordinary grocery store. It's a staple in the community for good produce and unbelievably great prices! I love buying my produce from here since they are close by and they always have fresh stuff. In the summer most of they're produce comes directly from the Ontario farms and is 100% local without the premium prices. This place is worth checking out.

If you're looking for a more specialty kinda gourmet grocery store, Loblaws is close by. They have everything from artisan bread, to organic meats and vegetables, many prepared gourmet meals that you can throw in the oven and even a cooked section slash bistro for grab and go! Also, they make some really curated style sauces that I love to buy. You can check em out if you wanna do half the work of creating a meal from scratch. ;)
