RIVERSIDE + LESLIEVILLE FOOD TOUR
Toronto's Artisan Food + Cultural Hot Spot
Experience the rebirth of a small community, as it becomes Toronto’s hippest new neighbourhood (thanks, Broadview Hotel) and the headquarters of the film industry. Old meets new on this charming stroll through Riverside + Leslieville, where former industrial buildings get a new life as trendy eateries. Witness how the historically working class community has kept its village-within-a-city character. See where celebrities like Food Network’s Chef Lynn Crawford have hung out a shingle.
Join us to chat with local food artisans as they share their finest offerings. Experiences include a fair trade, sustainably sourced coffee, artisan sourdough, a Lebanese lunch bursting with fresh flavours, and a few surprises, too. From sweet to savoury, we’ve got the insider’s take on one of the city’s best kept secrets.

Bring your appetite, our Food Tours + Adventures have you more than covered for Food + Drink. Bring a camera (or charged phone) for pics + memories. Bring your questions, we love sharing stories and recommendations for great places to eat + drink.
As for pace, while we set-up our Food Tours + Adventures with all our partners in advance, as small independent businesses, our partners will be busy juggling their regular customers and our tours, so we may face a tiny wait or eat standing at certain (small) stops. It’s part of our commitment to supporting local food, and showcasing the best eats, sips and bites of the city.
All our Food Tours run Rain, Snow or Shine, so please dress for the weather. Only our Escape the City: Canoe Paddle + Dining Adventure is subject to weather cancelation. We recommend purchasing TicketGuardian protection if you think you might be affected by weather or travel changes.
Culinary Adventure Co. experiences have been designed to highlight the best and most signature items from each of our vendors, shops and restaurants. Our partners showcase what they LOVE and their STORY – so ultimately their most delicious food + drink.
While we can accommodate severe food allergies (i.e. Nuts, Shellfish), Vegetarians and those who do not drink Alcohol, we cannot make substitutions for any other dietary concerns such as Gluten-Free, Celiac, Dairy-Free or Vegan. Dietary concerns + allergies must be highlighted in advance with your ticket purchase.
