With the summer months (finally) upon us, it’s basically impossible not to wanna emerge from our homes and check out every restaurant we’ve been adding to our bucket list the past few months. But… money. Wouldn’t it be nice to know you were actually gettin’ money back while spending it? 

Well team, that’s exactly what you can do with Neo Financial. Not only can you get an average of 4-6% cashback just by spending at the places you already love- it’s completely free! We’re talkin’ a savings account that gets you up to 130x times more than your current bank and a no-fee credit card (guess the founders of SkipTheDishes have pulled through once again!).

So, time to get back to talkin’ about 8 of our favourite places to grab a bite in Toronto and earn money while we do it! 

Dipped Donuts

If you haven’t tried this Kensington Market joint yet, you’re missing out. Dipped Donuts opened their doors in Toronto back in 2015. Since then, they’ve been a top spot for delicious desserts. They’re serving up hand-crafted donuts with glazes made daily using fresh ingredients. They’ve got all kinds of creative flavours, like carrot cake, s’mores, cookies & cream, and more. Plus, they even have vegan options available!

El Furniture Warehouse (aka El Furny) is one of Toronto’s most popular spots for great food, drinks, and an electric atmosphere. Their claim to fame is their menu where every food item is available for only $5.95. Yes, we mean every food item. You sure won’t break the bank eating here! On top of that, they’ve got great cocktails available. Every hour is happy hour at El Furny!

Boxcar Social

Whether you’re hitting the Harbourfront, Summerhill, or Riverside location, you’re in for a real treat at Boxcar Social. They’ve got an awesome wine club that you can sip through the quarantine. Plus, a fully stacked virtual bottleshop and general store. What more could you ask for?

We can’t talk restaurants and not talk brunch! This Toronto spot may just be one of the best. They’re known for their iconic home fries (whatever they put in that sauce – it’s working). Plus, a lineup of eggs benedicts that is anything but basic. Don’t feel like brunch? They’ve also got some pretty great dinner, drinks, and desserts available too.

The Dirty Bird Chicken + Waffles 

If you haven’t heard of this spot, are you even a true Torontonian?? The famous #NorthernFriedChicken joint serves up chicken and waffles in all kinds of combos. New to the dish and want to keep it classic? Try their signature dish The ODB. Feeling like you want to spice things up? You’ve got to sample The Great White North. Whatever menu item you choose, we’re sure you’re going to love it.
