Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Toronto

The Grilled Cheese
If you ski in Europe, then a hilltop shack devoted to hot cheese isn't so weird.
SOMA
Smoke’s Poutinerie
A fast-food franchise that's fabulous for post-drink munchies.
Saving Grace
This classic brunch spot is the saving grace of its uninspiring locale, bar one or two cute coffee shops.
Rua Vang Golden Turtle
Pho-get about the competition, this is where in-the-know Torontonians get their noodle soup fix.
Red Tea Box
This odd little shop is for total tea enthusiasts (and anyone who likes cake).
Pizzeria Libretto
When it comes to praising this pizza place at the top of the 'Ossington Strip', all Torontonians are singing the same tune.
Miss Cora’s
There's an organised chaos in Cora's kitchen, where she manically churns cookie dough and muffin mix to the beats on her blaring radio.
House of Gourmet
Gourmet is an over-generous description, but House of Pretty Damn Good doesn't quite have the same ring to it.
Greg’s Ice Cream
Greg's has been Toronto's tastiest ice-cream parlour for 30 years now, and shows no signs of a meltdown.
Ghandi Cuisine
Ghandi's isn't exactly photogenic, but it's what's on the inside that counts. The same can be said of the mammoth, blistered roti wraps that's dished out here.
George Street Diner
A comfort food diner with plenty of Irish charm; just what you need to soak up the booze.
Footwork
Eschewing pretty décor, Footwork gets down and dirty with the business of electronic dance.
Crêpes à GoGo
If you're looking for the authentic folded French snack in Toronto, you can't get better than GoGo's.
Burrito Boyz
You need big hands to get a grip on the stuffed and toasted tortilla parcels sold here.
Balzac’s Coffee
Harking back to a time when French cafés were lousy with literary luminaries, this place offers a slice of Parisian panache with its assortment of organic coffees.
Aunties & Uncles
Named after a B-side tune from The Jam, this is the flipside to a sleek business brunch.
