She has been baking pies since she was 9 years old, and you can taste the fruits of her labour at her Kensington Market mainstay, at 287 Augusta Avenue. Their traditional Pumpkin Pie is perfectly spiced and perfectly creamy. Wanda likes to keep you guessing, so there are often unadvertised seasonal treats to try, if you ask.

The Pumpkin Chiffon Cake is back at Roselle Desserts (362 King Street East). It’s only sold in the fall and is well worth the wait, but fall always feels like the shortest-lived season. Make sure you live it up this year and treat yourself (and your friends and family, of course) to this indulgent, perfectly-spiced, perfectly-sweet delicacy.

 

Steph and Bruce are the partners behind Roselle. They met while working in Paris and have both worked in Michelin-starred kitchens across Europe and Asia. Thankfully, they have brought their worldly (or maybe other-worldly) experience and talent home to Toronto. Their cute little shop in Corktown is open Wednesday and Thursday from 11 am to 6 pm, Fridays from noon until 6 pm, Saturdays from 11 am to 6 pm, and Sundays from 11 am to 5 pm.

Admire the amazingness of autumn in Toronto

 

Autumn in Toronto is an amazing time of year. The fall foliage can be a bit fleeting, but fortunately, you don’t have to travel far to experience it. Don’t let autumn fall away without taking in the beautiful (and free) show nature puts on. Here are some great spots where you can admire the amazingness of autumn in Toronto.

 

Moore Park Ravine / Evergreen Brickworks

The Moore Park Ravine (205 Moore Ave.) is easily accessible on foot from Davisville Village. You can enter the trail just south of Mount Pleasant Cemetery and follow the tree-lined path along the river, through the ravine, down to the Evergreen Brick Works. The grounds behind the Brickworks are complete with trails and ponds. They are also a great place to admire the fall foliage, especially if you hike up the hill on the east side by the train tracks and look out over it all. If you are too tuckered out to hike it back on foot, there is a TTC bus that stops at the Brickworks and takes you back to Davisville station.

 

The Don Valley

 

There may be no better place to take in the brilliance of the fall colours than the Don Valley. You can connect to the Don Valley trail system from the Brick Works at Crothers Woods and follow the paved trail along the Don Valley River. If you’re lucky, you can catch a glimpse of the spawning salmon as they swim upstream and attempt to leap over the small waterfalls along the way. You can follow this treed path all the way to Taylor Creek, Edwards Gardens, and Sunnybrook Park. The perfect time for fall colours and salmon spotting is right around Thanksgiving. If you never explored this part of your city, you won’t believe your eyes. You can learn more about this trail in our recent article.

 

Riverdale Park

Riverdale Park West begins just east of the Cabbagetown neighbourhood near Village Green. You can stop by Riverdale Farm to visit the animals and feel like you’ve escaped to the countryside. Take the pedestrian bridge over the DVP and you’ll find yourself in Riverdale Park East. This bridge will also connect you to the Lower Don Valley Trail. Walk up the hill on the park’s eastern side and you’ll get a breathtaking view of not only the fall colours but one of the best views of the Toronto skyline in the city. Plan to be there for sunset for the most Instagram-worthy photo ops.

 

Glen Stewart Ravine

The Glen Stewart Ravine is located in the Upper Beaches neighbourhood. It runs just north of Queen Street East up to just south of Kingston Road. This often-overlooked nature trail is one of the best places in the city to surround yourself with the brilliant colours of autumn.

 

Scarborough Bluffs

The East End of Toronto is home to some world-class green space. During the fall, this green space is reborn in gold, red, yellow and orange. The Scarborough Bluffs are beautiful no matter what season you visit, but when fall rolls around, it can feel downright magical. The brilliant colours of the leaves are complemented perfectly by the deep blue water of Lake Ontario, and it’s all framed by the majestic bluffs rising toward the light blue sky. Head to the base of Brimley Road South to take it in from the beach, or hike the upper trails that dot the top of the bluffs, all the way to Guild Park and Gardens.

 

Rouge Park

Rouge Park is never more aptly named than in the fall as the leaves change to brilliant reds. Pack a lunch, bring some water and hike the many trails that literally lead you over the meadow and through the woods, as well as along the river. It’s only a short drive from downtown or midtown but feels very rural. You won’t believe you’re still in the same city!

 

Humber Valley

 

The West End of the city is no slouch in the natural beauty department. There are many beautiful parks along the banks of the Humber River, from the mouth of the river where it feeds into Lake Ontario all the way past Steeles Avenue. Some standouts to check out are Lambton Park, Humber Marshes and Summerlea Park. Etienne Brule Park is a great place to walk along the river, take in the colours and catch the salmon leaping over the falls around Thanksgiving. You’ll be grateful you did. Take the Bloor subway out to Old Mill and walk down the hill to the north.

 

High Park

Photo credit: @benoromero on Instagram

 

High Park is another perfect fall foliage hotspot that also has its own subway stop. Plan a fall picnic, hike the trails, or simply take it easy and sit by Grenadier Pond as you let an unbelievably beautiful autumn day pass by.

 

Toronto Islands

 

Boarding the ferry at Jack Layton terminal, at the base of Bay Street, is breathtaking in the fall. Just across the water lies a whole other world. The Toronto Islands are never more beautiful than in the fall, and the summer crowds have thinned out considerably. If you plan an escape on a weekday, you may feel like you’ve got the place to yourself! Coming back is also lovely, as you’re treated to the best city views imaginable.

 

Tommy Thompson Park

 

Located at the southern tip of Leslie Street is the Leslie Street Spit and the gateway to Tommy Thompson Park. Talk a long walk, or a leisurely bike ride, along the wide pathway. In addition to the colourful leaves, you’ll pass by the marshlands and the bird sanctuary before you loop around the lighthouse and head back the way you came. You’ll be surprised by all the beauty you missed on the first pass, like the brilliant blue lake, yacht club and stunning city views.

 

Don’t let your autumn fall flat. Get out there and explore all the beauty your city has to offer!

Where to go apple picking near Toronto

 

The cool days of fall are perfect for picking some crisp, ripe apples. As the leaves begin to change, it’s the perfect time to spend a day in the nearby countryside, enjoying the fall colours, just slowing things down a little. Grab a cozy sweater and get ready to take a country drive. This is where to go apple picking near Toronto.

Eclectic Revival (3075 Dundas St. West) began as a traditional antique furniture shop back in 1985.

All the restoration work is done on site in the shop. The original fixtures, finishes and patinas are saved, and only new wiring and electrical components are replaced — with vintage parts whenever possible. If you’re in the market for one-of-a-kind lighting finds, it’s time to take a little trip to the Junction.

 

The shop is open to the public Wednesdays and Saturdays, from 11 am to 5 pm, Thursdays and Fridays, from 11 am to 6 pm, and Mondays and Tuesdays by appointment only.

The best BBQ in Toronto

 

Most people argue that summer is BBQ season. But why should something as delicious as BBQ have a season? We think any time of year is a good time to dig in. Toronto is a great town for this sweet and smokey delicacy. If you’re into it, visit these local restaurants for the best BBQ in the city.

 

Barque

Barque (287 Roncesvalles Avenue) makes some of the best low n’ slow smoked BBQ in the city and serves it to hungry patrons in a relaxed and comfy atmosphere. Note that the low temperature of their smoker (between 150°F and 325°F) means that the meat is served warm, not piping hot. Also, their slow cooking method means that once they’re out of meat for the day, they’re out!

 

The Meet Meat Platter ($99) is perfect for a group of four. It offers a good selection of their best meats. The platter consists of 12-hour beef brisket, Pommery pulled pork, smoked lamb shoulder, southern fried chicken, BBQ chicken and baby back ribs.

 

The Sampler for Two is $59 and includes your choice of appetizer or salad, three choices of meats, and two sides. You can add dessert for $5 per person.

 

If you want to enjoy the ultimate Barque BBQ experience, you’ll want to order The Smoker’s Choice. It’s a large, shareable platter big enough for the whole table. It includes Caesar salad, smoked chicken wings, cajun mac n’ cheese, hush puppies and all their BBQ meats. Dig into beef brisket, BBQ chicken, and baby back ribs. If also includes Tableside S’mores for dessert. This incredible meal goes for just $39 per adult or $21 per teen.

 

They also serve diners free popcorn which is a nice touch!


Carbon Bar

Carbon Bar, at 99 Queen St East in the Old City TV building, is a world-class BBQ joint with a full-service bar that serves excellent cocktails. Even if someone in your party isn’t into BBQ, there is a lot to love about this place. Their Hot Smoked Trout and Seafood Boil dishes are amazing. There are great sides including Jalapeno Cornbread ($8) or Mac & Cheese ($13) made with vintage cheddar, gruyere and chipotle. It’s perfectly crisp on the outside and creamy inside. But the real star is, of course, the BBQ.

 

The Pit Master Platter ($34 per person, minimum 2 people) from their Bar Menu is a must. It includes St. Louis cut pork ribs, beef brisket, buttermilk fried chicken, fries with chipotle mayo and dill pickles.

 

Eat at the bar, or get comfy in one of their plush leather booths, and get ready to enjoy some upscale, yet unpretentious eats!

 

Reservations are recommended.


The Stockyards Smokehouse and Larder


The Stockyards, at 699 St Clair Ave West at Christie Street, serves up wood-smoked BBQ at their small diner counter. They may be a small place, but their food is outstanding and they offer a full take-out menu. Take your meal home or have a picnic two blocks down Christie Street on the Wychwood Barns grounds (76 Wychwood Ave). Remember to grab plenty of napkins – it gets pretty sticky!


Their wood-smoked BBQ is amazing, but their Buttermilk Fried Chicken is out of this world. Most meals come with fries which are perfectly crisp and well seasoned.


Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ

Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ (81 Church Street) offers authentic Japanese yakiniku (grilled barbecue). Japanese BBQ is all about large plates of shared food. There is a personal charcoal grill installed at every table, so you can cook your meats just the way you like them. This is not an All-You-Can-Eat establishment. This restaurant is all about quality, not quantity. There are set prices for set meals, and the portions are more than filling. The atmosphere is warm and the staff are very friendly. If you’re new to Japanese BBQ, the staff are happy to offer meal suggestions and guide you through the menu. You can’t go wrong with their 21-Day Aged Harami Skirt Steak in Miso Marinade, or their Certified Angus Kalbi Short Rib with a Tare Sweet Soy Marinade.

 

With over 700 Gyu-Kaku restaurants worldwide, we’d say they’re doing something right! The Church Street location is not an overly large space, so it’s usually pretty busy. Make reservations to avoid long wait times.


Cherry Street Bar-B-Que

Cherry Street Bar-B-Que has two locations to choose from in Toronto. Their flagship, namesake location is located in the Port Lands, at 275 Cherry Street. They also have a stand at Assembly Chefs Hall, at 111 Richmond Street West. The Cherry Street location may be a little out of the way, but it’s housed in a historic former bank building with a great atmosphere and an enormous patio that offers exceptional views of the city. It’s worth heading down for some of their classic Southern pit-smoked meats, including brisket, baby back ribs, turkey and pulled pork. They’ve got some great sides like BBQ beans, mac n’ cheese, and even quinoa salad. They also offer a good selection of craft cocktails, local beers and a carefully curated selection of bourbon. Everything on their menu is market priced.

 

This is a casual, laid back restaurant. After you’ve been shown to your table, you order what you want at the counter, get a drink from the bar and enjoy. Go ahead, get saucy – nobody will care!

 

We hope this post inspires you to take a fabulous BBQ tour of Toronto!

The best pools in Toronto to chillax in this summer

 

Swimming is the perfect summer activity. Whether you’re looking to get in some exercise, or just want to splash around and beat the heat, it’s a great way to spend some time this season. Here are some of the best pools in Toronto to chillax in this summer.

 

Mooredale Pool Club

Mooredale Pool Club offers an enjoyable escape from the hot and hectic pace of city life in the summer. Relax by pool at this Rosedale oasis. The heated outdoor pool is open from 6:30 am to 9 pm on weekdays, and 9:30 am to 9 pm on weekends. Members are multi-generational, so there is special programming to appeal to different groups throughout the day. Members and their guests can enjoy Recreational General Swim (where adults and children occupy the pool simultaneously and there are no marked lanes), Adult Lane Swim (for serious swimmers hoping to get a few laps in), Adult Aquafit classes (generally for seniors and older adults), and swimming lessons (for kids) at different times throughout each day.

 

Each pool club member must have a Mooredale community centre membership. Memberships are available to everyone, not only to those within the Rosedale-Moore Park area. After joining, members must pay an additional fee in order to access the pool. Because the season is already underway, pool costs are currently half price. Mooredale is less than a 10-minute drive, or less than 20 minutes by TTC, from both Davisville Village and Village Green. Their swim season begins each year on the May 2-4 long weekend, and extends until Labour DayMonday.

 

Leaside Memorial Gardens Pool

 

Into every summer, a little rain must fall. When it does, visit Leaside Memorial Gardens Pool (1073 Millwood Rd). It’s a newly renovated, indoor public pool. They offer swim lessons for all ages and recreational swim times.

 

Aquatics Academy

Before you enjoy a day at the pool, you need to know how to swim. Aquatics Academy (391 St Clements Avenue) is Toronto’s Premier Swim School. They offer personal attention in every class thanks to their low instructor to student ratio. They have swim programs for childrenparents and tots, and adults. It’s a great place to learn how to swim at any age. Whether you are looking to improve your existing skills, or you’re a first-time swimmer hoping to learn the basics and get comfortable around water, Aquatics Academy has a program for you.

 

Sheraton Centre

Sheraton Centre Toronto is a wonderful place where you can kickback and relax in the largest indoor-outdoor heated pool in downtown Toronto. Whether the weather is cooperating or not, the water is always perfect. Swim under the sun or under the protective glass wall. Chill out poolside under an umbrella, on one of the many lounge chairs or sofas that line the deck. Because it’s the Sheraton Centre, service is exceptional. For the full experience, sip on a cool cocktail, bring a book and spend a luxurious summer day in lounge mode.

.

Memberships are available to the general public. An annual membership gives you access to their fitness facility, the pool, their changeroom facilities, their sauna, and towel service. Prices start at $95 a month plus HST for an annual membership. Day passes can be purchased using any major credit card, at a cost of $30 plus tax per visit. Guest passes sometimes sell out, and may not always be available during peak periods on weekends and holidays. Their pool hours are 6 am to 10 pm from Monday to Friday, and 7 am until 10 pm on weekends.

 

Alexandra Park Outdoor Pool

 

Alexandra Park Outdoor Pool (275 Bathurst St) is a 50-metre outdoor public pool just south of Kensington Market. Spend the day making a splash, then grab a drink in The Market. The water is clean, cool and refreshing on a hot summer day.

 

Leisure swim hours are 12 noon to 8 pm daily, all summer long.

 

Sunnyside – Gus Ryder Outdoor Pool

If you want to hit the beach and have a swim, but find Lake Ontario a little too chilly, head over to Sunnyside – Gus Ryder Outdoor Pool (1755 Lake Shore Blvd W). Admission to this large, lakeside, city-run pool is free. Remember to bring some quarters for the lockers. They are one-time use, so as soon as you open them, you’ll need another quarter to lock up again. Bags and food aren’t allowed on deck and must be kept in the lockers.

 

You’ll want to get there before noon, or in the evening during extended hours, in order to avoid the crowd of kids that takes over the pool in the summer.

 

This summer, do more than just dip your toes in. Dive into one of these amazing Toronto pools!

The EX is back!

 

Another Toronto summer is flying by, but you still have lots to look forward to! The Canadian National Exhibition (AKA the CNE, AKA The EX) is a late summer tradition in Toronto. From August 17th to September 3rd, The EX is back!

 

How do you sum up something as fabulous as The EX? It’s a carnival, county fair, concert venue, world food pavilion and exhibition all rolled into one great big end-of-summer EXtravaganza that is not to be missed. Here are just a few examples of what you can extend this year.

 

FOOD

CNE The EX Food Building

Every year, more than one million people visit the CNE Food Building to sample fare from local restaurants and cuisine from around the world. No matter what you like to eat, they’ve got it. You’ll find options for vegans, the gluten-intolerant, those who eat halal, and even raw foodies. Best of all, there are plenty of under $5 options! The Food Building is open from 10am to 10pm daily. All buildings close at 7pm on Labour Day Monday.

 

There’s plenty more food to taste outside of the Food Building. Ribfest is back by popular demand. It will take over Bandshell Park every day from 11am to 10pm. You won’t want to miss Food Truck Frenzy, just inside the Princes’ Gates, featuring the finest food trucks in town. Wash it all down at Craft Beer Fest, which conveniently coincides in time and location with Food Truck Frenzy. The Asian Market is the CNE’s version of a popular tradition that dates back to the Chinese Tang dynasty. This Night (and day) Market will delight your senses and your sensibilities with its food, artisans and entertainment. It’s open from August 30th to September 3rd.

 

AIR SHOW

Over the Labour Day weekend, the final days of the CNE are filled with the thrilling sights and sounds of the Canadian National Air Show as it soars over Lake Ontario. This year is the 69th annual edition. It will feature performances by two of the best aerial acrobatic jet teams anywhere. The United States Air Force Thunderbirds open the show, and our very own Canadian Forces Snowbirds will close it out with an incredible and dramatic crescendo. See it all, September 1st to September 3rd, from 12 pm until 3 pm.

 

VIP tickets are available if you want to watch the show in superb style. Ticket packages include things like: tented tables and chair seating, Air Show swag bags, access to an open beer/wine bar, a catered lunch, performer autograph sessions and same day admission to the CNE.

The rest of us will just look up.

 

RIDES

One of the main attractions of The EX is the rides. There will be dozens of thrilling, twirling contraptions for the young and the young at heart. Kids will love taking a spin on the Berry Go Round, Bumper Cars, Dragon Coaster, Lollipop Swing and many more! There are 30 rides in all at the Kiddie Midway, located at the west end of the CNE grounds, just east of Kid’s World. Height restrictions apply for some rides.

 

Grown ups can get their thrills on some CNE classics like The Zipper, The Twister and the Polar Express. Of course no trip to The EX would be complete without taking a turn on the Sky Ride for an elevated, scenic view of the CNE. The Sky Ride made its debut at the 2012 CNE and has become a crowd favourite. Transport yourself across the CNE grounds east toward the historic Princes’ Gates or west towards BMO Field, while being lifted up to 40 feet in the air!
