The top 10 old school pizza in Toronto

The top old school pizza in Toronto come from longstanding institutions that have been slinging out slices of cheesy goodness for decades. In the face of countless gourmet pizzerias opening up around the city, these tried-and-true spots continue to do their thing.

Here are picks for the top old school pizza in Toronto. 

Danforth Pizza House

The much-loved orange countertops of this longtime restaurant by Donlands has been serving up whole pizzas since 1964. Unlike other spots, all toppings go under the cheese, except for the tomatoes, which rest on top of gooey cheese. The result: puffy, chewy deliciousness. 

Vesuvio's Pizzeria

This Junction staple has been around since 1957, claiming the title of Toronto's first and oldest pizza parlour. Bringing over New York-style pizza to Toronto, Dominic Pugliese and his brothers introduced the city to delicious Italian meals and pies that remain a hit to this day. 

Camarra Pizza

Thick crust pizzas are the consistent draw at this restaurant near Dufferin and Glencairn. Prices have definitely risen significantly since 1958, but regulars still love the option to create a custom pizza with dough that's made in-house daily.


It's nothing but pepperoni pizzas at this tiny pizzeria in Little Italy. Though the interior of this place has remained relatively unchanged since the late 60s, the spot still boasts pretty cheap prices for massive slices of old school pizza topped with delicious tomato sauce.  

The Real McCoy

This family-run spot in Scarborough is takeout only. Started by Elias Mihail and now run by his son George, this plaza restaurant is decked out in old timey kitschy decor and sells enormous slices of greasy pizza.

Oakwood Pizzeria

Thin crust pizzas are the specialty at this surprisingly big spot just south of Eglinton and Oakwood. Open in 1974, these crispy pies are affordable and come topped with a homemade tomato sauce that are great for delivery and pickup. 

Il Paesano

Run by the same family since 1957, this Etobicoke restaurant has for years been a place for group gatherings itching for classic Italian meals. Pizzas are huge and fresh; getting these delivered are highly recommended, but make sure to reheat at home for ideal crispiness.

Frank’s Pizza House

They may be better known for their huge calzones, but this Corso Italia restaurant has also been doing delicious handmade pizzas since 1965; with a fun, family-friendly environment, this spot is a classic. 

Milano’s Pizza

Expect lots of medium crust pies with loads of toppings at this restaurant in Etobicoke, established in 1963. Flavourful pizzas covered with cheesy goodness make this spot a popular west end institution. 

Gerrard Spaghetti & Pizza House

The owners of this Danforth mainstay have upgraded the ovens of this restaurant, which has been open since 1966. This spot's now been upgraded into a full menu for a sit down experience, with customizable pies plus over 65 pre-designed pies.

The top 10 boozy brunch restaurants in Toronto

Boozy brunch restaurants in Toronto are the best way to celebrate the weekend. Before you dive back into the work week, dig into brunch specials, fun cocktails, and if you can afford the time or money, all-you-can-drink options. 

Here are my picks for the top boozy brunch restaurants in Toronto. 

Green Wood

This Leslieville spot has a big selection of alcoholic drinks, most notably their unique cocktails. Mimosasa come with cava mixed with grapefruit juice or OJ, and the Greens is a gin mixed with kale juice and syrup for a kick of veggies with your liquor.

East Thirty Six

Weekly Sunday brunch at this King East restaurant runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and offers mimosas and Caesars for $5 a glass. If you're in need of some caffeine with a little hush hush alcohol, grab a cup with Bailey's for $6. 


A 24-hour favourite, this Dundas West diner has daily drink specials to go with your all day breakfasts. Pints are $4, mimosas are only $3 and Caesars will set you back $4, making it the perfect spot for both the night before and the morning after. 

Cafe Cancan

With a beautiful interior that will make you feel like a refined French bruncher, this bistro in Harbord Village celebrates brunch from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a Bubbly Brunch ($36) that includes a glass of mimosa with a full meal; the Le Grande ($149) option comes with champagne. 

Emma’s Country Kitchen

Wash down a big plate of buttermilk biscuits and gravy with this St. Clair West spot's signature $10 Caesars and mimosas with prosecco. They've also got a morning version of the moscow mule that will definitely get your day started right. 

The Federal

This Dundas West favourite does brunch daily from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. but only serves its cocktails starting at 11 a.m when local laws allow. They have a big selection, plus cider options and craft beer on tap. 

Hole in the Wall

A favourite in the Junction for date night and basically every other time of the day, weekend brunch is best celebrated here with their big selection of local craft beers that go perfectly with their full English breakfasts of eggs, pork belly and fried beans. 

Tennessee Tavern

This Parkdale joint has a great outdoor patio and a special brunch beverage menu on weekends that includes a bucket of OJ mimosa ($44.95). If you don't feel like escalating your brunch to unnecessary inebriation levels, opt for a single mimosa for $9.85.

White Lily Diner

Make yourself a mimosa at this airy Riverside diner with a little bottle of Henkell Trocken which you can mix with a tiny glass of orange juice for $15. Their Breakfast Beer – a mix of Beau's IPA and fresh grapefruit juice – makes an obviously suitable accompaniment to their all day breakfast.

Northern Maverick

This spacious brewery and restaurant on King West has handcrafted lager tulip and mimosa weekend specials for $5, or if you want to go fancy, they also have bottles of Cave Spring and Veuve Cliquot champagne from $70 to $160 a pop.

Here are my picks for the top places to buy lumber in Toronto. 

Central Fairbank Lumber

With two locations near Steeles and Dufferin and Gerrard and Main, this is a go-to spot for any project, from professionally commissioned to regular renovations. CFL offers a huge selection of mouldings, trim and doors that are manufactured on site at reasonable prices.

The top 25 fish and chips in Toronto by neighbourhood

The top fish and chips in Toronto are perfect plates of greasy golden fish and fries. If you’re a fan of this English staple, you’re in luck – you’ll be able to find a spot for those battered bannocks in most hoods. 

Here are my picks for the top fish and chips in Toronto by neighbourhood.

The Beaches

British Style, a stalwart English joint at the corner of Coxwell and Dundas, slings out seafare like haddock, cod, clams, shrimps and scallops out of the fryer seven days a week. 


Head to House of Parliament for a giant filet of your favourite fish atop a bed of fries and wash it down with a pint of your favourite brewski at this comfortable pub. 


If you're tired of plain batter, go to Off The Hook on Broadview where you can get your fish fried in a variety of spices like Cajun, jerk, lemon herb, Korean BBQ or even gluten free. 

East Danforth

Duckworth’s Fish & Chips has been around since 1930, frying up combos of battered halibut, haddock and blue cod with a side of creamy coleslaw and thick steak fries.

Filets at Pearl Diver are served on trays with fries and house-made tartar sauce. Photo by Jesse Milns.


An oldschool joint, New Toronto has an interior with classic vinyl booths that will make you feel like you're dining in 1973 – when they opened.  Grab a mono-coloured plate of juicy fried faves of halibut and scallops with a side of onion rings. 

Financial District

For something centrally located and less old-timey than other places, head to Bannock and grab a plate of fish and chips served with a loaf of their namesake bread, bannock, for the ultimate Canadian comfort meal.

Harbord Village

A cozy spot with some killer crispy seafare, Harbord Fish & Chips may be small but their meals are killer. Grab a plate of halibut and fries to go, or if you get lucky, snag one of two seats. 


Get very down-to-earth with Jumbo Burgers' fries and fish. Carry your fried haddock to your seat on a red tray and eat the accompanying coleslaw with plastic knives and forks; packets of tartar sauce included.

frescos toronto

Fresco's is a favourite spot for fish and chips in Kensington Market. Photo by Jesse Milns.

Kensington Market

Fresco’s Fish and Chips uses non-hydrogenated, trans-fat free oil to fry their top-quality fish to golden perfection. Try the Miss Vicky's chip batter for a thick and crispy meal. 

King East

It may be better known for its oysters, but Pearl Diver carries tons of classic pub foods, fish and chips included. Elegantly plated, these pricey plates of fish comes with house-made tartar sauce and a cabbage and root slaw. 

King West

When you see its classic mermaid logo, you'll know you've found The One That Got Away. Fish here comes in all types: grab it in a classic fish and chips combo, atop a salad, or fried on a whole grain bun sandwich. 


An absolute classic, Olde Yorke on Laird is just one of those spots that survives off of customer loyalty. Not the hippest by any means, this restaurant wins over its regulars with plates of thick cut fries and two simple fried fillets. 


Just as its name implies, Reliable Fish N’ Chip is a dependable spot where you can grab a big variety of fried seafood. Stray from the usual fish with fries and grab some fish tacos and poutine served on checkered greeseproof paper.

Little Italy

The Caledonian is a cozy Scottish spot that has tasty pub eats, best eaten with some whiskey. Have their fish accompanied with thin cut fries if you're not in the mood to try haggis.


Danny's Fish & Chips is a spot that uses light batter on it fish. Grab some malt vinegar from their tables and sprinkle it on before digging in.

North York

Feast on High Street Fish and Chips' Superb Fillet – its famous piece of giant haddock – in a surprisingly elegant space for a strip mall spot. Their fish is shipped from O'Neil fisheries in Nova Scotia, so you know it's good. 


If you've never paired your fish and chips with some tom kha soup, maybe it's time to try. Vicky's has two menus: one that serves delicious Thai and another that batters up tasty fish.

Located by Pharmacy, Hamish's Kitchen has tons of fried fish options. The eat-in dinner comes with buttered bread and coleslaw; for something bigger, grab the seafood platter that comes with mouthwatering shrimps and scallops too. 

St. Clair West

It's hard to miss the attractive exterior of Sea Witch Fish and Chips on St. Clair. Batter here is thick and golden, not too oily, and served with big portions of thick, fresh cut fries.  

St. Lawrence Market

Toronto's favourite historic market is all about takeout counters, and Buster’s Sea Cove might be the best one. Brave a lunch lineup for delicious fries and halibut, haddock, or calamari with deliciously done fries. 

Upper Beaches

You can grab your filets with gluten free batter at Foodoe’s Fish and Chips, paired with russet potato fries and their tasty selection of sauces like Foodoe's tartar, chipotle mayo or Mac sauce.

West Queen West

If you're headed to Trinity Bellwoods, drop by Hooky's first for their simple menu of usuals like cod and a pricey halibut fillet, plus fried goods like prawns and soft shell crab, served fresh on newspaper. 

Weston-Mount Dennis

Eating at Golden Crisp Fish & Chip feels like a serious throwback. If you enjoy eating a simple meal of filets with fries and/or kitschy Dutch decor, this Mount Dennis community staple is for you. 

Yonge and Dundas

Queen and Beaver has some of the top fish and chips in the city. If you're looking for an authentic English eat, grab a plate and pit out on their second-floor patio, or stay inside to enjoy the fun decor. 

Yonge and St. Clair

Eating in front of a counter of fresh fish at Mermaid will definitely give you the full seafaring experience. Try their herby batter of fried basa for a meal less bland than usual.
