Diana's Oyster Bar in Markham, Ontario

Diana’s Oyster Bar & Grill

If you’re a fan of oysters, you absolutely need to visit Diana’s Oyster Bar & Grill in Markham.

While I’m not crazy about the cooked dishes, the fresh seafood is completely worth coming here for.

They also have $1 Malpeque oysters every single day with purchases of certain items, for both dine-in and takeout!

My fave oysters are Raspberry Point, French Kiss, Kusshi, and Malpeque.

Since they don’t actually have space for a patio, the patio is in the parking lot.

Nevertheless, still one of the best patios to visit in Markham!

LOCATION: 7501 Woodbine Ave, Markham, ON


Smash Kitchen and Bar

Smash puts unique spins on classic comfort food dishes, and they’re actually a sister restaurant to NextDoor Restaurant in Main Street Unionville!

Their burgers are super delicious, but pretty much everything they have on the menu is amazing.

They’re located on Highway 7, and they’ve also got a great patio for you to enjoy your hearty brunch.

Demetres

I’ve been going to Demetres for desserts for as long as I can remember, and their Downtown Markham location is definitely the nicest one.
