The Kensington / Chinatown neighborhoods should be on your must-see list when visiting Toronto. Authentic Asian stores, cafes, food stalls, open air markets and restaurants characterize the area. Considered a historic site, the blocks are filled with unique shopping, too. And no visit there would be complete without stopping by Rick’s Cafe for an afternoon coffee and pastry. The establishment is a local favorite, known for their espresso drinks and made-to-order smoothies. Even if you’re not hungry, order a BLT. An exhausting day of shopping and sightseeing can easily be recharged by bacon and the ones they make at Rick’s are not to be missed.
