Bay & Bloor

Although it is the largest city in Canada, Toronto is really made up of neighbourhoods, where you often feel like you live in a small town. But since Toronto is on a grid, when asked, most Torontonians will describe where they live by mentioning the closest main intersection. 

The Torontoist has a series on some of these intersections, and this week’s was on one close to where I live: Bay & Bloor.  It’s a nice review of the area and I leave it here because it mentions many of the places Alan and I go to like the Varsity Cinema, Quasi Quasi (they don’t mention it but it has the best tiramisu I’ve ever eaten) and Scaccia (where I’ve always gone for coffee but now discovered their amazing pastas). Must go now and read the one about Yonge&Bloor, which is even closer to where I live (Yonge &Wellesley)

Born and raised in Brazil, a Canadian stole my heart and took me to Canada in 1999. After seven years between Montreal and Toronto, we then moved to Barcelona, Spain, where I did research for my PhD thesis. This blog began as a chronicle of our adventures while living in Barcelona and exploring the old world and has acquired a life of its own after we moved back to Canada.
