St Clair West is a vibrant Toronto neighbourhood with plenty to do! We’ve got a plan for your next weekend on this beloved stretch of Toronto. Read on for what to eat and drink for a perfect Saturday on St Clair West!
Grab A Latte At Krave Coffee
If you’re anything like us, then your first thought when you wake up on a lazy Saturday morning is, “Where’s the coffee?” Krave Coffee is a locally-owned coffee shop with a rustic, homey feel. Vintage coffee posters decorate the exposed brick interior. There’s a patio which makes for great people watching on St Clair during warm summer days. When it comes to the menu, expect delicious treats like scones and butter tarts sourced from nearby Toronto bakeries. Loose-leaf teas, coffee tonics, and the usual latte and cappuccino options round out the offerings at this community cafe.
The Stop Farmer’s Market At Wychwood Barns
Local farmers come to this beautiful community centre year-round to offer a range of produce and hand-crafted goods every Saturday. Highlighting local sustainable and organic products, this market attracts more than 1,500 people each week and often features live entertainment and music. Make sure to stop by the Market Cafe for healthy sandwiches and soup next time you visit during your Saturday on St Clair West!
Have Brunch At Emma’s
Emma’s Country Kitchen offers all-day brunch, so you’ll be able to grab a plate of their famous Emma’s Benny any time of day! This beloved brunch destination is known for their house-made baked treats like buttermilk biscuits and oatmeal cakes. If you’re looking for comfort food on a Saturday morning, Emma’s is sure to hit the spot. The popularity of this St Clair restaurant means wait times can be on the long side, but a tip is to grab a coffee at Krave (right across the street) while you wait!
Go For A Ravine Walk
St Clair is right next to the Cedarvale Ravine, which is great for afternoon walks from spring to late fall. Local residents love to walk their dogs or bike along the footpath and enjoy the natural vegetation of these wetlands. At one end of the ravine is Cedarvale Park, which includes an off-leash area for dogs and an open field used by residents for frisbee throwing, kite flying, and cricket. In the winter this park is a popular spot for tobogganing due to the steep slopes leading down to the field. In short, Cedarvale Ravine is a wonderful addition to your Saturday on St Clair West!
Sip Cocktails At Limon
This Mexican cocktail bar is a great spot to sip a drink and enjoy conversation and treats like churros with a date. The decor consists of contrasting teal and gold elements that add a twist to its modern vibe. Small plates and desserts are the backbone of the menu, along with cocktails. You can expect creative drinks like the Raspberry Eclipse, which combines cherries, gin, and mint. As a tip, Limon offers Latin dance lessons every Friday night for only $15, which would be a great way to meet other St Clair West locals!
