The wait is over! Visitors to Union Station, one of Toronto’s busiest transport centres, no longer have to settle for just a standard, mid-journey snack. Situated in the lower concourse en route to Scotiabank Arena, Union’s Foodie Aisle is open seven days a week from 11:30 am to 7 pm.

Address: Union Station – Lower Concourse


Ferry Dessert

Pop in for a made-to-order smoothie, latte, coffee or tea, and a delectable dessert for a touch of sweetness.

Address: 314 College Street. Toronto




Boukan took off during the pandemic, serving traditional Haitian cuisine out of a tiny space in the Beaches neighbourhood, soon becoming a staple of the local community. As the need for more room grew, Boukan began an expansion.

On September 4, the new space at 774 Danforth opened its doors. Boukan prides itself on being far more than a restaurant; it’s a space for artists to showcase their work, for community members to congregate and socialize and for people to make meaningful connections.

Address: 774 Danforth Avenue, Toronto
