The Porch Rooftop Patio in Toronto

The Porch

The Porch offers up some of the best rooftop patio views in the city, and you can see a gorgeous panoramic view with the Toronto skyline.

The only thing about this place is that they charge cover both during the day and at night, but it’s still a very nice spot.

Be sure to wear plenty of sunscreen, and probably even sunglasses and a hat, unless you’re okay with turning into a lobster.

King Taps Restaurant & Bar in Toronto Financial District

King Taps

Craft beer and pizza are the specialties here at King Taps.

You wouldn’t think that such a chic spot in the Financial District would serve up such good pizza, but they truly do serve some of the best pizza in Toronto.

All of their pizzas are fantastic, but the BBQ Chicken, Bianca, and Stinging Bee are my favourites!

They’ve also got a huge craft beer and cocktail selection, perfect for enjoying on their large outdoor patio.

I also have a blog post all about my King Taps restaurant review if you’re interested in learning more!
