Toronto is notoriously indecisive when it comes to the weather. Often times, we anticipate snow storms that are projected to be severe but end up not being so bad . Or, we get hit with snow storms that are actually bad but are also totally unexpected. It's hard to make plans when you don't know what weather conditions to expect.

Spring officially arrives in around three weeks; but I wouldn't be surprised if another snow storm came our way within that time. Some people drop everything and stay home during a snow storm, while others refuse to let the weather get in the way of their plans. Here are 7 cozy places to take a date to in Toronto during a snow storm, for the latter group:
C’est What // 67 Front St E
C'est What has the perfect ambience to contrast a gloomy snow day. The venue has a log cabin feel to it, and features a seating area that encircles a glorious fireplace where you and your date can play board games (which they provide). The bar also offers several types of craft beers, whiskies and wines for you to indulge in.
Rooster Coffee House // 343 King St E
The best way to battle a cold day is with a cup of steaming coffee or hot chocolate, and there's no better place to grab a sip than at Rooster Coffee House. Along with their great selection of food and hot beverages is a laid back atmosphere that's perfect for any date.
RaviSoups // 322 Adelaide St W
Soup is yet another way to keep warm on a snowy day. RaviSoups is one of Toronto's best soup places and offers a great selection of hearty soups and delicious wraps. The sweet aroma of Ravi's soups alone will make you and your date forget about winter.
Lego + Lagers at the Gladstone // 1214 Queen St W
The perfect retreat from a snowstorm for you and your date would be Gladstone Hotel, especially if the snowstorm occurs on a Tuesday. The Melody bar holds a Lego + Lagers event every Tuesday night from 5 PM - 1 AM, where you can get creative with Lego while enjoying a refreshing beer. Did I mention it's 100% free?
