Are you always looking for the best restaurants to feature on your Instagram? In a city as large and diverse as Toronto, it can be hard to stay on top of the restaurant scene that’s constantly evolving. It feels like everyday somewhere new is opening their doors, and it can be difficult to know which restaurants are worth checking out and which are duds.
We’ve rounded-up the best, most Instagrammable restaurants in Toronto so you can get to grammin’ next time you’re looking for a dinner reservation.
La Palma’s interior is inspired by Venice Beach’s art-centric vibe, with clean, cool colours donning the walls and subtle hints of palm trees making their way into many design aspects. It’s lively and chic, with a menu to match; the 100 layer lasagna is one of their best sellers, and definitely gram worthy.
The light and tropical design of Chubby’s automatically transports you to an island mindset, something that’s always appreciated (especially in the winter months). Serving up some of the city’s best Jamaican food, if you love yourself some spice, this is the place to go!
The newly opened Maison Selby at Bloor and Sherbourne is an Instagrammer’s dream – from the front bar area and each dining area, to the secret speakeasy downstairs, no detail is left unattended. Stop by for brunch if you want to get some of that great morning light, or come by to enjoy the bar scene with some friends (and try to snag a seat at the speakeasy downstairs, ask your bartender about it).
Pink, pink, and more pink! Cafe Cancan is a beautiful French bistro brought to you from Chef Victor Barry, Brendan Piunno, and Nikki Leigh McKean. The space is rich with French design inspiration, from the crown moulding to the barware, and they offer an excellent selection of brunch bites.
SoSo Food Club takes Chinese food to a whole new level — and that level is totally cool-girl inspired! From the pink and teal place settings, to the red and pink neon lights, SoSo is a delight from beginning to end. The cocktail list is full of unexpected twists (bubble-tea inspired drinks, anyone?), and the food menu puts a modern twist on Chinese that will leave you wanting more.
Mahjong is a west end hidden gem, that at first look appears to be a convenience store. Located at 1276 Dundas Street West, you enter through the convenience store (where you can actually buy late night snacks). Through the hidden key hole entrance you’ll find unique cocktails, along with a spread of delicious bites. Plus, tons of Instagrammable material from the keyhole entrance to the lounge couches.
Speakeasy’s are making a comeback, apparently! Oysters, Champagne, Coffee is located right downtown in the Entertainment District, and is a glittery bougie Instagrammer’s dream. The best part is at night this space turns into a speakeasy bar (see, we told you) where you pull a secret bottle of champagne off the shelf and open the passage to another area. We promise, this isn’t one to be missed.
Not only is Otto’s Bierhalle serving up delicious german-inspired bites in a chic space, but they might have one of the most Instagrammable bathrooms in the city! If it hasn’t popped up on your feed already, each bathroom at Otto’s is outfitted with a button that will bring the party (think disco balls, Drake tunes, strobe lights, and much more).
The brand spanking-new Parkdale snack bar, Superfly, has a little bit of everything: stunning cocktails, string lights galore, and the friendliest staff you’ve ever met (this is key when you need a photographer to snag that grammable moment for you).
