Toronto named most caffeinated city in the world

Dec 3 2019, 9:00 am

There’s no question that Torontonians love their coffee, so it should come as no surprise that this year, the city has earned the title of most caffeinated in the world.

According to Uber’s year in review, Toronto saw the most coffee orders from across the globe on Uber Eats in 2019.

And while coffee was a popular order for those hustlin’ and bustlin’ in the city, Uber has shared a number of other favourite food orders from the year, too.

Enough ramen was ordered, for example, to fill 330 bathtubs — slurp on that.

Pizza snagged the top spot, followed by sushi, wings, and ramen — the classics. Boba, dumplings, and crepes were also up there, which means folks were happily tucking into plenty of comfort food at home.

As for next year? While nobody can truly know what the future holds, Uber Eats can track which food searches are accelerating in popularity as we approach the end of 2019.

Based on that, here are Uber’s predictions for top food searches next year:

  1. Bone broth
  2. Brussel sprouts
  3. Reishi
  4. Chickpea butter
  5. Squid ink
  6. Cauliflower
  7. Harissa
  8. Oat milk
  9. Plant-based foods
  10. Cucumber
  11. Passion fruit
  12. Dragon fruit
  13. Tofu
  14. Charcoal
  15. Celery
  16. Kimchi
  17. Kale
  18. Ghee
  19. Juice
  20. Matcha

Oat milk! Matcha! Looks like the caffeine train might be here to stay. And being most hyped up over caffe lattes isn’t the only win Toronto saw this year.

The data also shows that the CN Tower was the third most popular Uber destination across the world in 2019, following only the Empire State Building and the Freedom Tower.
