Oh hey there! I don't know if it's that I'm 8 months pregnant or Summer is in full swing, but I've been dining out quite a bit! My freedom and independence will be very limited when the baby arrives, so I'm trying to squeeze in as much me time as I can, including trying out new restaurants around Toronto. I've checked out several popular hot spots over the last couple of months, and a few have really impressed me. I've become obsessed with one spot in particular. I'm there two, sometimes three times a week! Trust me, it seems like a lot, but given the prices, it's not that bad at all. Plus, their menu is SUPER healthy and that's what I'm looking for during my pregnancy.
Below, I've shared my favourite new locations to indulge in food, coffee and sweet treats. I know a lot of our customers reside in the GTA, so I thought it would be fun to share all these new gems. Enjoy!
Planta is an upscale Yorkville restaurant that leaves animal and all animal products off its menu. What I love about this place is how health conscious their offerings are. They stick to plant based dining and are committed to fresh products from ethical providers. They also have cold pressed juices available on their brunch menu which is a nice way to kick off your day. The juices are refreshing, affordable and nourishing to the body. If you have the time, take a seat and enjoy your surroundings with friends or family.
Calii Love is dining heaven. It's west coast vibes and poké bowls are an absolute game changer. If you couldn't tell, this is the restaurant that I hit up a couple times a week. If you're not into raw fish, their acai bowls and salads are out of this world. The décor makes you feel as if you're in LA (which I want to be, 99% of the time) and chill service put your mind at ease. I always find myself conversing with the employees too which is an added bonus. It's nice to support a business that is as friendly as the one you work for :) Another good thing about Calii Love? You can take your food to go if you have a busy day ahead. If you're a buy bee, you don't always have to settle for fast food.
