11 Of Drake's Favourite Restaurants In Toronto
Dine like a 6God.
Toronto’s very own heartthrob Drake is known for shouting out some of his favourite spots around the city. With a strong love for his hometown, Drake is aways spotted around the city doing the things he loves most. Whether it's staying in a luxurious hotel, or catching a basketball game at the Air Canada Centre, many of us know his whereabouts without even asking.
But have you ever wondered where the 6God gets his grub on while in the city? Well here are 11 of Drake’s favourite food spots across Toronto, just so you can also wine and dine like October’s Very Own!
Sotto Sotto // 120 Avenue Rd.
Drake has made multiple references to this upscale Italian restaurant located in Yorkville. He mentions it in his song Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music with Jay-Z. He has also posted photos of himself dining in on Instagram with various others including some lucky fans!
Fring’s // 455 King St. W
Drake’s restaurant in Toronto is definitely one of his favourite places to grab a bite in the city. With the kitchen lead by Drake’s favourite chef and good friend Susur Lee, this restaurant is bucket list material for any Drizzy fan. Enjoy some of their popular Truffle Fries with some Drake inspired cocktails.
Habibiz Café // 1939 Kennedy Rd.
If you’re familiar with the 6God’s music you definitely have to know this one. Drake mentions Habibiz Café in numerous songs and is often spotted there when in the 6ix.
King Taps // 100 King St. W
He was recently spotted at this new Toronto spot that features a unique menu of pizza, tacos and Asian inspired dishes. Did I forget to mention they feature over 50 beers on tap? Talk about variety!
Joso’s // 202 Davenport Rd.
The interior of Joso’s might be strikingly familiar as you enter the restaurant. It is largely recognizable from the album art of Drake’s album Take Care. The restaurant is also mentioned in the album itself. Many other A-list celebrities have been spotted dining here such as Mick Jagger and Mariah Carey.
416 Snackbar // 181 Bathurst St.
Another Toronto favourite that Drake has been spotted at, the 416 Snackbar carries a menu of light fares inspired by Jamaican, Asian, Greek and Italian cuisine.
Il Mulino Nuovo // 1060 Eglinton Ave. W
Mentioned on that popular verse from his song Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music alongside his other favourite Toronto restaurants, Drake is definitely an artist with expensive taste. Pricey meals with an old school Italian vibe, this place just screams luxury.
Lee // 601 King St. W
Another restaurant by his chef bestie Susur Lee, the 6God has been spotted dining in and visiting his good friend. The menu does differ from that of their collaborative restaurant Fring’s, as Lee features an Asian and French inspired menu.
The Real Jerk // 842 Gerrard St. E
The Real Jerk is Drake’s favourite spot for Caribbean eats in the city, and also the very same restaurant where the video for his hit single with Rihanna titled “Work” was filmed. This restaurant features karaoke nights, an open dancefloor and casual Caribbean eats.
Vivoli // 665 College St.
Noted as one of his favourite restaurants from as far back as 2009, this Italian eatery specializes in pastas and thin crust pizzas. Drake says the restaurant is like an "escape" for him.
The Cheesecake Factory // 3401 Dufferin St.
Okay well this doesn’t exist yet in Toronto, but opening at Yorkdale mall in the Fall will be the first Canadian location of Drake’s favourite spot for cheesecake. As infamously mentioned in his song Child’s Play off of the album Views, Drake raps, “Why you gotta fight with me at Cheesecake you know I love to go there.” This is going to be a busy spot for Drizzy lovers and cheesecake lovers alike!
