8. Rock Lobster // 538 Queen St W.
Rock Lobster is home to some of the best seafood in the city. Their caesars put them on the map in Toronto, but how could they not when they are garnished with a giant lobster tail?

Although the typical 30 minute wait may seem excessive for a breakfast place, Old School is completely worth it. Their pancakes stacks are very popular, along with the chicken and waffles!

Buca is nothing short of incredible. If you like Italian food and are looking for a new favourite restaurant, this is the place for you. All the dishes are full of flavour and creativity, making this spot completely worth the hype!
