8 Cute Summer Photo Spots in Toronto

Scouting out the cutest and most Instagrammable summer photo spots in Toronto?

I love hitting up cute photo spots in Toronto during the summer for the ‘Gram, and I’m always on the hunt for new ones.

While it ain’t fun snapping photos in the heat, summer definitely is the best time to shoot in the city with so much going on.

Here are some of the cutest and most Instagram-worthy summer photo spots to visit in Toronto!

Be sure to also follow me on Instagram and TikTok – I share a lot more content on those platforms that don’t make it to the blog!

Cute summer photo spots in Toronto

Yorkville, Toronto

111 Scollard Street

This simple yet cute spot in Yorkville gives you a little taste of Europe.

It seems like a pretty random spot, but it’s one of my go-to places to visit whenever I’m looking for cute photo spots in the Yorkville neighbourhood!

LOCATION: 111 Scollard Street, Toronto, ON

Osgoode Hall building in downtown Toronto, Ontario

Osgoode Hall

If you’re looking for a taste of Europe in Toronto, the Osgoode Hall courtyard is a pretty and Instagrammable spot for all your summer OOTD photos.

It’s also usually pretty empty (especially in the mornings), so you won’t need to worry too much about bothering people!

Osgoode Hall is also a heritage building in Toronto, so it’s a cool spot to visit.

LOCATION: 130 Queen St. West, Toronto, ON

Toronto Music Garden at the Harbourfront in Toronto, Ontario

Toronto Music Garden

While I think the Toronto Music Garden is prettiest during the spring, they’ve got plenty of pretty blooms throughout the summer as well.

Plus, they’ve even got live music at the gardens during the summer, which is super nice!

LOCATION: 479 Queens Quay West, Toronto, ON

Allen Schwartz dress from Fitzroy Dress Rentals at 1 Claredon Road in Toronto, Ontario

1 Claredon Road

This stunning historical building is actually a residential building, so please be mindful and respectful of that if you come visit here.

I believe a lot of older people live in the building, so they actually will call on you and have you fined.

Just be respectful and don’t spend an hour taking photos here!

LOCATION: 1 Claredon Road, Toronto, ON

Toronto flower shop flat lay

Yang’s Fruit & Flower Market

Ain’t nothing more summery than a field of flowers – or in this case, buckets full of colourful, fresh blooms.

They’ve got buckets full of bouquets in front of the store, perfect for getting cute photos for the ‘Gram!

LOCATION: 132 Avenue Rd, Toronto, ON

Cocktail Emporium in Kensington Market, Toronto

Cocktail Emporium

Cocktail Emporium is one of the cutest buildings in Kensington Market with its pale pink walls and white window trims.

Afterwards, stop inside their unique shop for some cocktail tools and ingredients, or spend some time checking out vintage stores in Kensington Market!

If you’re looking to do fun guided tours in the area, I’d definitely recommend checking out this Canadian food tour in Kensington Market, or this 2-hour Kensington Market and Chinatown walking tour.

LOCATION: 20 Kensington Avenue, Toronto, ON

My favourite feelings

This is Paradise mural

After the gloomy shades of winter, I’m all about bright and happy colours for spring.

The This is Paradise mural on Queen West is super cute, and it’s not as busy as other popular Toronto murals.

LOCATION: 408 Queen St. West, Toronto, ON

Calii Love mural in Toronto

Calii Love murals

If you’re also a lover of all things colour, Calii Love has a wall filled with cute and aesthetic murals perfect for your Instagram feed.

Afterwards, you can grab a colourful latte or poké bowl inside the restaurant!

LOCATION: 367 King St. West, Toronto, ON
