12 Best Restaurants in Toronto’s Financial District

There are tons of great restaurants in the Toronto Financial District worth checking out.

While a lot of them cater towards the 9-5 crowd, a lot of them are also great for everyday visiting!

I spend a lot of time in the Financial District, so I pretty much eat here all the time.

Here are some of the best restaurants to eat in the Financial District in Toronto!

Pizza and appetizers at King Taps Restaurant in Toronto

1. King Taps

If you’re looking for elevated pub food and an endless selection of beers on tap, King Taps is the place to go.

Their food and cocktails are absolutely delicious, and they have daily deals and happy hour deals!

Their pizzas are probably my fave thing on the menu, and you can’t go wrong with the Prawn & Pesto or Stinging Bee.

King Taps is attached to First Canadian Place in the Financial District, but there’s also an outdoor entrance on King Street.

I have a blog post all about my King Taps restaurant review!

LOCATION: 100 King St. West | Website


Momofuku Noodle Bar, Toronto

2. Momofuku Noodle Bar

This NYC-based restaurant chain by David Chang (who hosts an awesome podcast and has shows on Netflix) serves up delicious ramen right in the Toronto Financial District.

If you’re looking for a delish appetizer, definitely order the pork bun or BBQ pork bun.

Don’t forget to have some of Momofuku’s unique soft serve at their milk bar afterwards, or even grab baked goods upstairs to take home!

They’ve got a fancier restaurant upstairs called Kōjin, which is pretty good but definitely worth visiting during Summerlicious or Winterlicious instead – it’s pretty pricy otherwise.

LOCATION: 190 University Ave. | Website


Leña Restaurant in Toronto

3. Leña

Leña is a gorgeous Argentinean restaurant that serves up South American-inspired dishes.

It’s located right at the corner of Yonge & Richmond in the Financial District!

If you watch MasterChef Canada on Crave TV, you might recognize Leña from the restaurant takeover episode in season 6!

LOCATION: 176 Yonge St. | Website

4. Craft Beer Market

Craft Beer Market has over 100 different beers on tap, and they’ve also got the largest selection of draft beer in Canada!

You’ll find the massive restaurant packed both inside and out even on a weekday.

No surprise, because their apps and drinks are delicious.

5. The Poké Box

Poké Box is a great spot to order ahead and pickup (through Ritual, one of my fave Toronto food apps).

Their poké bowls are delicious – I usually grab the Spicy Box or the Poké Box.

There isn’t much seating as it’s more of a takeout restaurant, but you can walk a few minutes south to Berczy Park and enjoy your poké bowl by the cute dog fountain.

LOCATION: 36 Toronto St. | Website


6. Terroni

I’ve never been much of an Italian food person, but Terroni makes some pretty darn great pasta.

If you’re a seafood lover, order their Spaghetti in Canna a Mare – it’s v delicious.

Terroni has locations on Adelaide, Queen West, and in Summerhill!

Sud Forno, Toronto

7. Sud Forno

Enjoy lattes and baked bites at the café branch of the Terroni brand.

Both the interior and exterior of the café are super Instagrammable, and they’ve got delicious Italian eats available as well.

The Sud Forno on Temperance (downtown) is the more café-style restaurant while the Queen Street location is a bakery.

LOCATION: 132 Yonge St. | Website


8. Pizzeria Libretto

You’ll find wood-fired Neapolitan-style pizzas at this local Toronto-based pizza chain.

You can’t go wrong with their classic Margherita pizza!

Feel free to order multiple pizzas and share with whoever you’re with.

LOCATION: 155 University Ave. | Website


Cactus Club Cafe in Vancouver, British Columbia

9. Cactus Club Cafe

Cactus Club may be a chain restaurant, but the food is actually very delicious.

They’re based out of Vancouver, so you’ll find a lot of their restaurants across British Columbia.

Their only Toronto locations are at First Canadian Place and Sherway Gardens!

I adore their Butternut Squash Ravioli with Prawns, and they’ve got some great cocktails as well.

LOCATION: 77 Adelaide St. West | Website


Canoe Restaurant, Toronto

10. Canoe Restaurant

While I don’t think Canoe is worth the price, it’s definitely worth visiting for the view if you’re looking for a romantic restaurant in the Financial District.

The atmosphere is really nice, and the views of the CN Tower are fantastic!

I’d recommend visiting during Summerlicious or Winterlicious for the tasting menus!

Assembly Chef's Hall, Toronto

11. Assembly Chef’s Hall

Assembly Chef’s Hall is an upscale food court filled with some of Toronto’s best and most popular restaurants.

It’s great because you have a diverse set of cuisines at your fingertips, and you can even get different dishes at different restaurants to try.

DaiLo is one of my all-time favourite Toronto restaurants, and their Assembly Chef’s Hall location offers their delicious dishes for a little cheaper than their actual restaurant.

Ramen Isshin is another great restaurant there!

If you like the idea of visiting food halls, Upper East Food Club is a great Asian food hall in North York.

LOCATION: 111 Richmond St. West | Website


12. Union Food Court

We’ve all been complaining for years about the construction at Union Station, but it’s finally starting to get better.

New shops and restaurants are popping up, and there’s even a full food court at Union now!

You’ll find popular fast food chains there, but you’ll want to grab bites at local gems Loaded Pierogi, Paramount Fine Foods, Roywoods, and Sansotei Ramen.

On the main floor at Union, you can also find Pilot Coffee Roasters, Union Chicken, Wvrst, and Uncle Tetsu’s Cheesecake!
