Toronto is cool but Montreal has my heart

We've spent the last few days in Toronto, and I have to say, it's a pretty awesome city! As a Montrealer I was raised with a certain reservation about Toronto... it's too big, too sprawled out, no charm. But that is completely wrong! Toronto has so much character, so many cool little neighbourhoods, and so much going on.

(That being said, Montreal still wins in the end, and will always have my heart! Once a Montrealer - always a Montrealer!)
Anyway, here are some fun little Toronto moments over the last few days in the big city
We went to this quirky little restaurant on Queen Street east called Ruby Watchco and totally fell in love.   There was no menu... you were just served up delicious dishes at the chef's whim... kind of like going over to someone's house for dinner.  Everything tasted incredible!





We're back in Montreal now and I'm looking forward to having some time to catch up on all your lovely blog posts I've missed.
I hope you have a love-filled weekend (it is Valentine's season after all!)

West coasters ( I grew up in Vancouver) love to put Toronto down....it's just part of the vibe. It is Canadian and we are a lovely culture and it is our largest city.....hope to one day explore it for myself

My husband was just in Toronto for a business trip and he liked it. I contemplated going with him but tickets were way too expensive. I long to visit Montreal more though and if I get the chance I'm totally asking you to plan my stay!

Re: Just Sayin': right now I just use iPhoto to arrange/edit my photos before posting them. But for fancier things I hear Skitch is pretty good : )

I've never been to either - Toronto or Montreal (only Vancouver, 'cause I'm a West Coast person). I think your feelings about Montreal v. Toronto are probably similar to how I feel about my beloved San Francisco to the utter cool sophistication of New York :)

I love Mitzie's! If I ever was inclined to open a breakfast place I would model it after them!
