New American Restaurant
$$
“Always full, very buzzy spot. Although the burgers are good, we feel this spot is pretty touristy. So if you're trying to avoid those kinds of places, best to know that. Otherwise, if you're down for the wait, you'll likely have a good or decent meal here. ”

“Queen St West, or West Queen West as it's known locally, is Toronto's premier walking street, full of small shops and boutiques, coffee shops and restaurants. It's not a tourist street; it's where Torontonians go to shop and play and live. You could devote an entire visit to just walking Queen Street, from Parkdale in the west, through the shopping district right through downtown. Further east, the neighbourhood of Leslieville offers great restaurants and a friendly vibe. Queen St continues even further east, eventually ending up in the iconic Beach neighbourhood, where the city meets the lake and where each year the Beach Jazz Festival, well jazzes up the scene.”

Brewery

“"We went for a steam whistle brewery tour this past weekend, and it was a great experience. Not only do they give you an abundance of their beer to enjoy while on the tour, we actually learned quite a bit of information on what goes into making such a great tasting beer!! I would recommend taking this tour if you want to learn a little more behind the scenes of what it takes to make beer!! The cost is very reasonable, so is the length of the tour!!!! Cheers steam whistle for making learning something new fun!!!"”
