Best restaurants in Liberty Village


Mildred’s Temple Kitchen

Mildred’s is one of Toronto’s most beloved brunch spots, you’ll find them right in the heart of Liberty Village.

They’re famous for their heavenly Mrs. Biederhof’s Wild Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes, which are some of the best pancakes in Toronto!

They use locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients for their small menu of unique brunch dishes, and they also make a lot of things from scratch in-house, like their scones, biscuits, and jams!

LOCATION: 85 Hanna Ave #104, Toronto, ON


School Restaurant

School serves up a delicious brunch menu in their cool industrial-inspired space.

They’ve got everything from epic pancake stacks to juicy buttermilk chicken and waffles, so you can take your pick between sweet or savoury brunch.

They also make their own hot sauce in-house, which is pretty cool!

LOCATION: 70 Fraser Ave, Toronto, ON


Breakfast poutines at OEB Breakfast Co. in Toronto's Liberty Village

OEB Breakfast Co.

OEB is a breakfast chain originally based out of Calgary, and they opened their very first Ontario location in Toronto’s Liberty Village.

They’ve got an extensive menu filled with unique takes on classic brunch dishes, like their Canadian Lobster & Shrimp Crêpe, Gnocchi Breakfast Carbonara, and Confit de Canard Poutine.

Their duck fat-fried herb potatoes are *chef’s kiss*.

Adam and I actually visited OEB’s Calgary brunch spot for the first time a couple of years ago, and their Toronto location is just as great!

You can watch my TikTok video to see more of OEB’s Toronto spot!

LOCATION: 125 E Liberty St, Toronto, ON

Enjoy some of the best burgers in Toronto at Aloette Go, the takeout-focused outpost of Aloette on Queen West.

Enjoy the classic Aloette Burger or go for the Chicken Sandwich, and definitely grab the Crispy Squash or Loaded Fries as a side.

You’ve also gotta grab their famous and heavenly Lemon Meringue Pie for dessert!

Poke bowls from 'Ono Poké Bar in Toronto

‘ONO Poké Bar

I absolutely love poke bowls, which are a Japanese-inspired take on classic Hawaiian poke.

It’s basically sushi in a bowl – it’s made up of raw fish, toppings, and rice!

If you love your torched sushi, you’ll definitely love the torched poke bowls at ‘ONO Poké Bar.

Both the ‘ONO Torched Salmon and Torched Ahi Tuna bowls are amazing, and they’ve even got poke bowls with BBQ eel or steak if you’re feelin’ fancy.

They’ve got a dozen signature poke bowls to choose from, or you can build your own bowl if you’d prefer.

They’ve got 8 locations across the GTA, including one in Liberty Village!

LOCATION: 100 Western Battery Rd #2, Toronto, ON


Aburi Butterfish Dragon and Aburi Scallop Dragon Rolls from Kibo Sushi House in Richmond Hill, Ontario

Kibo Sushi House

Kibo Sushi is a fave of many Torontonians not only because of all their convenient locations, but because of their affordable yet delicious sushi rolls.

They’ve got plenty of different sushi and sashimi combos or a la carte rolls, alongside cooked dishes like Gyoza and Chicken Karaage.

My go-to order is the Spicy Maki Trio combo, which comes with 6 pieces each of spicy California, spicy salmon, and spicy tuna rolls – they make some of the best spicy rolls out there!

I also love any of their aburi (torched) sushi rolls – they’re absolutely amaze.

If you haven’t heard of aburi sushi, it’s flame-seared (or torched) sushi!

The nice thing about Kibo’s Liberty Village location is that there’s actually seating – some of their locations are just takeout spots!

LOCATION: 171 E Liberty St #146, Toronto, ON


Kinton Ramen in Toronto

Kinton Ramen

Kinka is one of my fave ramen spots in Toronto, and they were actually one of the first authentic ramen restaurants to come to Toronto!

They’ve opened up their newest location inside Liberty Village, and the interior is super nice.

Kinton’s soup base is made with a blend of pork bone stock, chicken stock, fish broth, vegetables, and filtered water, which is what makes it so flavourful.

Definitely try their Pork Spicy Garlic Ramen – it’s amaze!

Kinton has a bunch of locations across the GTA, and they’re actually part of the Kinka Family of restaurants, which also owns Kinka Izakaya, JaBistro, and NEO Coffee Bar!

LOCATION: 153 Liberty St, Toronto, ON


LOCAL Public Eatery

You’ll find 20 rotating taps of craft beer and modern bar food at LOCAL.

Enjoy a wide range of diverse eats from their Cheese Perogies, to their Truffle Cheeseburger, to their Thai Crispy Chicken Sandwich.

They’ve also got a super nice patio that’s especially nice at night with all the string lights!

Adam and I randomly stumbled across LOCAL after a music festival years ago, and we really liked it here.

LOCATION: 171 E Liberty St #100, Toronto, ON


NODO Liberty

If you’re craving Italian food, definitely hit up NODO Liberty for your fix.

Pizza and pasta is the focus here, and you’ll find a wide range of options including red and white sauce pizzas!

They’ve also got some fun creations like their Oltraggioso with spiced and scorched pineapple and their Milazzo with shaved cantaloupe.

They also serve up weekend brunch and have an all-Italian wine and beer program!

During the summer months, you can enjoy their lovely second-floor patio.

LOCATION: 120 Lynn Williams St, Toronto, ON


Chiang Mai

Craft cocktails and modern Thai dishes are what you’ll find at Chiang Mai, one of Toronto’s best Thai restaurants.

All of their dishes and cocktails are just as beautiful as the interior, which is moody and contemporary.

Everything on the menu is also made fresh in-house using premium, local, seasonal ingredients!

You can find one of their locations in Liberty Village, and they’ve also got restaurants on the Danforth and in Mimico.
