Travel & Stationery - TORONTO
Hello! Welcome to my first blog post, TRAVEL & STATIONERY! I’m constantly itching to travel and here’s what I look for when I've decided on a place:
• Best touristy things to do i.e Historical Sites and Beautiful Urban Locations
• Best Food and Drinks
• Book Stores, Comic book stores, Libraries
• Indie Shops (Toronto has a lot!)
• Last but not least STATIONERY
Toronto is full of creative shops, delicious food, beautiful street art, and cool architecture.
Where to stay:
I've been lucky enough to have friends who let me stay with them when I go to Toronto but if I had a dream place it would be THE DRAKE HOTEL and THE BROADVIEW HOTEL. They just look cool and artsy lol.
Balzac's - I love the menu variety here. I only stopped to get something to help with my cold and now I can't wait to go back and try more off of their menu.
Dineen Outpost - Multiple Locations. Dineen Outpost is popular because it's so cute so it might be hard to get a seat but if you do its another good place to get work done.
Jimmy's Coffee - Multiple Locations. Easy and awesome space to get some work done with delicious coffee and baked goods.
Sorry Coffee Co - Sorry Coffee Co is a cool spot with a nice view and delicious coffee.
