Foodies on Foot: Culinary Streetcar Tour of Toronto’s Queen Street


Culinary adventurer Christian Pritchard took a tour of Toronto via the 501 streetcar route with Foodies on Foot's Steven Hellmann. Foodies on Foot (and similar tours in other major cities) takes groups on public transit to visit various restaurants through the city. If you don't live in a major centre, gather a group of friends, hop on the bus and plan out your own route! Start with breakfast and make your way through to after-dinner espresso.


Glory Hole Doughnuts

1596 Queen St. West, Toronto

This west-end shop houses more than just your average doughnut. These treats are yeast-based and are made and glazed by hand. With flavours ranging from “Banana Bonanza,” “PB & J” and “Cheesecake,” it's definitely worth a taste!


741 Queen St. West, Toronto

For brunch, try out Destingo’s famous panettone French toast with brûléed grapefuit. Or check out their delicious Italian-inspired dinner menu, including pasta, pizza and delicious antipasto.

Banh Mi Boys

392 Queen St. West, Toronto

Part of the fun is getting stuck in the chaotic lunch rush of Banh Mi Boys! Must-tries include kimchi fries, kalbi beef tacos and Vietnamese bánh mì sandwiches.

Fusaro's Italian Kitchen

147 Spadina Avenue, Toronto

The pizza and pasta at this Italian joint are to die for! The little touches really make a difference, like being freshly made and cooked in a stone oven. Be sure to try the Capricciosa pizza and pappardelle pasta with shrimp and oven-roasted tomatoes.

Redline Coffee and Espresso Bar

354 Queen St. East, Toronto

What better way to finish off your day of eating than with a strong espresso from Redline? If you have enough room, be sure to try their roasted marshmallow latte and home-made syrups!
