There are tons of really great chains that have braced the streets of Toronto. We have a Starbucks on every corner, hundreds of McDonalds, Milestones and PLENTY of Jack Astor's. These restaurants are perfect for when you're craving something you know is good.
Toronto also has tons of restaurants that are unique to the city. These independent restaurants are just as good as the huge chains. Bonus: you can ONLY find them in Toronto. Sorry everywhere else on the planet, you HAVE to come visit to get a taste!
