Tim Hortons is a must for coffee. You can also get a cheap meal (chili, soup ya get the picture).Also watch where you smoke cigarttes-a lot of restaurants have banned smoking if the are considered a 'family 'restaurant. You cannot even bring kids on the patios.
OK this sounds crazy but as an English person travelling to Canada, I had trouble working out how to use the milk! In many Canadian households the milk comes in plastic bags, no lie! The bag just slots into a special jug-thing and then you just cut off the corner of the bag. I feel embarrassed writing this but if you are staying with friends or family in Canada, save the embarrassment and be prepared! I spent a good 10 minutes trying to remove the bag, tip it out etc etc, not only did I make a big mess but I made a complete fool of myself in front of family who I had just met!!!
Crackdogs. Toronto has the most fantastic sidewalk hotdogs - nicknamed 'crackdogs' by my friends that live there, because they've gotta be dusted with crack to taste so good. Only about a buck, and with a phenomenal range of toppings - like pickles, mushrooms, olives, etc - they'll keep you going for a while. Perfect to stave off hunger and cold.
I don't know personally, but I have heard that asking to take home the leftovers in a restaurant in some parts of Europe is just not acceptable. When you come to Canada, just remember that it is not only OK to take them, it is almost an insult to the restaurant if you don't.
All over Toronto you can see street vendors with their hot dog carts selling hot dogs, bratwurst, sausages, etc.. These are great places to grab a quick bite to eat.
