2015 Food & Drink

These are but a few humble suggestions to get you started on exploring Toronto’s huge food scene. The best resource for finding a place to eat in Toronto is BlogTO’s restaurant reviews, where you can search by either food category or neighbourhood. We’ll be in the Yonge & Dundas neighbourhood for Hackfest and in the Yonge & Bloor neighbourhood for the rest of the con.


If a quality cup of joe tickles your fancy, here are a few solid choices. You’ll also find Starbucks, Tim Hortons, and/or Second Cup on every street corner.
