Toronto has some very beautiful restaurants. As far as interior design goes, we’re all pretty spoiled by gorgeous restaurants and bars all around the GTA. Sure, these spots are tasty as h*ck, but sometimes all we want is to enjoy our food and drink in a pretty place.
With that in mind, here’s our guide to some of Toronto’s most beautiful restaurants.
COC is Toronto’s brand new hotspot. Doing three simple things very well: coffee, oysters, and champagne! While shucking and sipping, guests can enjoy this alluring space filled with playfully pink details and a luxurious champagne cellar. The floors are beautifully tiled with COC spelled in miniature grey hexagon shapes. Designed by award-winning agency Navigate Designs, this Instagram-worthy space was assisted by them from conceptual development to finishing touches. Also, the heavily gold interior will have you feeling like the king or queen you deserve to be!
Where: 214 King St West
Picture a space where bohemian meets Scandinavian and KOST is what should come to mind! This open concept restaurant is as dreamy as it is delicious. From cozy rattan seating to velvet stools, an incredibly designed roof with openings that modern bubbled light fixtures hang from, and tropical plants as tall as you, this spot has it all. The bright, spacious windows line the oak booths and light the dining room perfectly, allowing the all-time best iPhoneography to occur throughout. The view isn’t too bad either…
Where: 80 Blue Jays Way
We’d say Fresh has sure come a long way since the juice bar they started as in 1990. With bright whites, tall ceilings, exciting floor tiles, and exposed brick, Fresh on Front is one of the most beautiful and Instagram-worthy of its other locations. Tall, mid-century style velvet seats line the bar and welcome you to grab a drink, a bite to eat, and stay a while. With fresh plants and light oak surrounding the space, this spot reminds you that you are in one of the best plant-based restaurants.
Where: 47 Front St E
Figo’s setting is stylishly elegant. With a decor theme that is heavily Scandinavian, and modern architecture that makes you feel like you have walked into a millennial’s take on a roman cathedral, plus the perfect feminine touch of roses lining the ceilings – Figo’s unique interior is anything but ordinary. Figo is a romantic setting for a Saturday night date, and a dreamy enough spot to return for your Sunday brunch.
Where: 295 Adelaide St W
Find your resort escape with an all-inclusive feel at La Palma! The incredibly comfortable booths are lined with a rich brown that matches the Danish-style chairs and ties in perfectly to the bright, modern wallpaper and tiles. With a relaxed and refined atmosphere, this is the ideal location to catch up with a friend over coffee and lunch or dine with a lover over a romantic dinner for two.
Where: 849 Dundas St W
This vibrant, feel-good joint is not only home to some of the best Mexican food in Toronto, but it is also home to some of the nicest interior design. With incredible stained glass windows in tones of greens, blues, and yellows that tie in with the rest of the incredible decor, you will feel like you entered the tropics. Everywhere you turn, there is sure to be a fern or banana leaf plant. The restaurant hits all four C’s: Crisp, Clean, Comfortable and Consistent. We dig it.
Where: 133 Richmond St W
Think of this coffee shop like an industrial Little Italy. With large farmhouse tables, vintage leather booths and wooden chairs, and thriving bird’s of paradise plants, Balzac’s Coffee is the ultimate zen spot to catch up with a friend, spend the day working away or meet that cutie off tinder in real life hoping their profile picture is accurate… On top of all of that, if you’ve got a thing for floors, the tiles present a great opportunity to take a good shoe selfie
Where: 1 Trinity St
We absolutely love everything that is going on over at Planta. There is not a single boring spot to be found on the interior of this delectable plant-based resto. Even the chairs are dope! Also, the banana leaf wallpaper invites all guests to snap a selfie or a proper “OOTD”, and the black details from the hardware and door frames tie in perfectly with the bright materials and liveliness of plants every few feet. We vote Planta 10/10 Instagrammable.
Where: 1221 Bay St
Byblos Downtown captures the perfect Eastern European vibe. The entire restaurant is elegant, right down to the plates your dishes are served on. With colourful plates plastered in European tones of red and yellow or blue and white, the fine china your tea and coffee is served in, and crisp neutral tones that carry through their velvet chairs, leather booths, wooden shelves, and brick walls, this spot is a food bloggers dream. Well, any sort of blogger actually. Regardless, this is definitely one of Toronto’s most beautiful restaurants.
Where: 11 Duncan St
Oretta is every millennial’s dream. The colours are bright and the decor is just right. With baby pink and navy blue tones mixed perfectly with gold hardware, and colourful rugs that make their character ceilings seem even taller than they already are, every part of the restaurant is a different experience. This Italian hot spot has brought together tons of tones and textures to tie in perfectly to one another.
Where: 633 King St. W
This incredible Argentinian restaurant, owned by celebrated hospitality group Oliver & Bonacini, celebrates authentic, flavourful food and drinks, enjoyed amongst old friends. This belief translates very clearly through to the interior design of the restaurant. With fresh, bold hues of royal blue, brass, and rustic neutrals throughout the restaurant, Lena’s interior should be on every Instagrammer’s radar.
Where: 176 Yonge St
The forest greens throughout the interior of Miss Thing’s brings out the bright pinks of the traditional Hawaiian flowers painted along the walls perfectly. Oh, and the food and drinks are just as beautiful as this restaurant’s decor! So you can snap pics of the design and of your grub, the way it’s always been intended. With leather booths and rustic wood and stools across the bar combining various vibes of decor, ladies and gents alike won’t feel out of place in this beautiful Toronto restaurant.
Where: 1279 Queen St West
Chubby’s is every Boheme’s dream. There’s wicker, rattan, plants, white oak, you name it – they’ve covered it (in a very cool way). Add in the relaxed beach feel of this Jamaican spot and you’ve got the perfect place to hit up when you want to grab a drink in a 1970’s surf shack. With palm trees lining the walls, and bright greens throughout the booths, this spot is picture perfect. Island feels have never felt more perfect in Toronto.
