With meat grounded daily, there are no freezers in their establishments because they serve only the freshest ingredients to their patrons.

It may be budget-friendly, but food quality is their top priority.

Citro Italian Restaurant

Why not top off an excellent dinner with a delectable dessert that  from Citro Italian Restaurant?

Because Citro is in 10123 Yonge St., a short walk from the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts, this quaint little restaurant makes an excellent place for a pre and after-show dinner.

From their famous apple pie to tiramisu, a classic Italian dessert, everyone with a sweet tooth will enjoy Citro Italian Restaurant’s homemade dessert menu.

What A Bagel

I like to jumpstart my day by eating What A Bagel’s mouth-watering baked goods, along with the coffee I will be mentioning below.

Munching on their decadent bakery staples such as bagels, bread, buns, butter tarts, croissants, cinnamon rolls, cookies, Danish, and a pretzel is what gets me through the day.

Situated at 10815 Bathurst St., it is impossible not to overeat at this bakery because What A Bagel has everything for everyone.
