9 Best Restaurants at Toronto’s Harbourfront

Looking for new restaurants to try in the Toronto Harbourfront neighbourhood?

I absolutely love wandering around the waterfront – it’s such a nice neighbourhood to walk around.

There are also some great restaurants and cafés in the Harbourfront area, no matter what kind of cuisine you’re into!

Here are some of the best restaurants to eat at in the Toronto Harbourfront neighbourhood.

Boxcar Social Harbourfront in Toronto, Ontario

Boxcar Social

Boxcar Social is one of my fave cafés in Toronto, and I absolutely adore their Harbourfront location.

The inside of the café is huge with plenty of seating, and they’ve even got a lovely outdoor patio.

It’s a great spot for a coffee or quick lunch, and they whip up a mean avocado toast.

LOCATION: 235 Queens Quay West, Toronto, ON | Website

Kibo Sushi House

Kibo Sushi is a favourite of many locals in Toronto, and they’ve got locations across the city.

It’s takeout-only, and they have all kinds of delicious and affordable sushi rolls and combos.

You can order for pick up through Ritual, and you can get $10 off your first order using my code!

LOCATION: 16 Yonge St. Unit D, Toronto, ON | Website

Poke bowl at Rolltation, Toronto


Rolltation is one of the best poké spots in Toronto, and they have a location inside the Sun Life office building.

They have poké bowls, sushi burritos, and more, and you can either build your own or choose from one of their signature selections.

How to Spend a Weekend in Hamilton, Ontario

Adam and I always get the Classic Salmon Poké Bowl – it’s our all-time favourite from Rolltation!

LOCATION: 110 Harbour St. Unit 220, Toronto, ON | Website

Indian Roti House

If you’re a fan of roti, you’ll love the roti at Indian Roti House.

Roti is a sort of stuffed flatbread with filling, and it’s amazing.

The Lamb Korma Roti is my favourite here!

LOCATION: 256 Queens Quay West, Toronto, ON | Website

Kinton Ramen in Toronto

Kinton Ramen

Got a craving for some hearty ramen in the Harbourfront neighbourhood?

Kinton serves up some of the best ramen in the city, and you’ll find them along Harbour Street.

Fun fact: they’re a sister restaurant to Kinka Izakaya, which is right next door!

LOCATION: 110 Harbour St. Unit 108B, Toronto, ON | Website

Kinka Izakaya, Toronto

Kinka Izakaya

If you’re a fan of Japanese pub food and drinks, you’ll love Kinka Izakaya.

I’ve loved pretty much everything I’ve tried on the menu, and I’ve been to Kinka dozens of times over the years.

Try the Chicken Karaage, Kakimayo (cheesy baked oyster), and the Salmon Natto Yukke!

Kinka is one of my all-time fave restaurant chains in Toronto, and I’ve got a blog post all about my review of Kinka Izakaya!

LOCATION: 110 Harbour St. Unit 108A, Toronto, ON | Website

Tokyo Sando in Toronto

Tokyo Sando

Tokyo Sando is actually a virtual restaurant, so you can only order for takeout or delivery.

It’s housed within Kinka Izakaya, and it’s a sister restaurant to both Kinton and Kinka!

They actually offer pretty sweet takeout deals if you’re looking for cheap and delicious eats at the Harbourfront.

I’m a big fan of the Ebi Katsu Sando (deep fried shrimp sandwich) and Tokyo Fries (dressed up with everything you’d find on takoyaki).

LOCATION: 110 Harbour St. Unit 108A, Toronto, ON | Website

Salmon aburi at Miku Sushi in Vancouver, British Columbia


Although I personally haven’t visited their Toronto location, I’m a big fan of Miku in Vancouver.

They serve up incredibly fresh and delicious aburi sushi and sashimi!

I also have a blog post all about where to eat in Vancouver if you’re interested.

LOCATION: 10 Bay St. #105, Toronto, ON | Website

BeaverTails red building at Toronto Harbourfront


I know, I know – BeaverTails is not an actual restaurant.

It is an iconic spot on the Harbourfront though, so I’m including it here anyways.

If you’re not from Canada, don’t worry – it’s not actually made of beaver tails, it’s just some deep fried dough with delicious sugary toppings.

The bright red building BeaverTails is housed in is actually pretty cute, if you’re looking for Instagram-worthy spots in Toronto (or more specifically, the Harbourfront).

LOCATION: 145 Queens Quay West, Toronto, ON | Website
