Toronto a 2024 hotspot for foods, according to this Yelp Canada list

For Toronto foodies, it may come as no surprise that the city’s restaurants have dominated Yelp’s top 100 places to eat in Canada in 2024.

The annual list curates some of the best bites nationwide, as per Yelp’s data science team. According to Brenna Falvey, the author of the list, Yelp generated the data from their community submissions. Their community managers then narrow down the list of candidate restaurants, and trend experts finalize the list,

Out of 100, Toronto came through with an overwhelming 20 spots. Montreal was the second most represented city with 14 restaurants and Vancouver third with 11.

If you’re wondering where the top spot to grab a bite is, it’s Toronto’s Chen Chen Nashville Hot Chicken. Known for its fried chicken sandwiches and located on Queen St W in the heart of downtown, it’s hard to find a bad review of the Nashville-styled spot.

Next up on the Toronto front is renowned Grandma Loves You – a hideaway Italian-esque sandwich shop North of Bloor. It came in fourth, just below Montreal’s Buvette Scott in second, and then Manoush’eh Lebanese Mediterranean food in Vancouver in third.

According to the list, breakfast and brunch foods are trending this year. Ranking 20th on the list is The Diner House 29 in St. Catharines, Ont.

Some other foods popular among Canadians were Middle Eastern, with seven restaurants making the list, and Indian, with five.
