Sam James Coffee Bar has multiple locations, but we think the Park location is the most Insta-worthy. Grab a cup, and take a stroll around the neighborhood as you get to know your new vina.

Lady Marmalade has us salivating. This Queen Street E. spot has a to-die-for brunch that not a single vina could say no to. Try one of their signature bennies, or chow down on an “A.M. Poutine,” which is a delightful combo of hashbrowns, cheese curds, gravy or hollandaise, and a choice to add eggs and bacon. Can you say YUM?

For the indie gals, Burdock is the coolest place to grab a drink with your vina. This microbrewery, restaurant, and intimate live music venue in Bloordale has everything. Order a craft brew, munch on some comfort food, and enjoy the live music with your vina.

The Urban Market at Concord Cityplace is a great low-key idea for your first vina date. Peruse the food stands and the produce from local farmers as you and your vina obsess over homemade bread and fresh tomato season.

The Monkey’s Paw on Bloor street is a bibliophile’s heaven. Specializing in antique books and other paper goods, it’s an amazing spot to explore with a literary queen. Check out the Biblio-Mat in the back, the first ever randomizing vending machine for old books.

Editorial @ VINA; lover of film, music made in bedrooms, art, and intersectional feminism; and harboring a (not so) secret weakness for reality TV and the color pink 💞💘. If I'm M.I.A. you'll probably be able to find me staring at an Ellsworth Kelly at SFMOMA or taking in the ocean breeze at Land's End.
