10 Best Restaurants in Toronto’s Financial District

10 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!

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!

Pizza and appetizers at King Taps Restaurant in Toronto

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!

Momofuku Noodle Bar, Toronto

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.

What to Try on the King Taps Menu in Toronto

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.

Leña Restaurant in Toronto


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!

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.

Poké bowl at The Poké Box Toronto

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 Lava Blaze 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.

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

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.

If you’re looking for more Instagrammable coffee shops, I’ve got a blog post all about Instagram-worthy cafés in Toronto!

NEO-NY Genoa Salami from Pizzeria Libretto in Toronto

Pizzeria Libretto

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

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

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

Their chilli oil is also *chef’s kiss*.

LOCATION: 155 University Ave. | Website

Cactus Club Cafe in Vancouver, British Columbia

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

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!
