Little Italy doesn’t have a monopoly on delicious Italian sandwiches and treats. If you’re out this way be sure to check out Roberto’s Corner, a hidden gem tucked in the back of a Quickie. Delicious, fresh ingredients and great sandwich combinations. There are also treats like gelato and cannoli and a small fridge with take home containers!
After a split with the previous co-owners of this food truck, All Out Burger has rebranded, changed the menu slightly, and reopened—much to the delight of the neighbourhood. Lots of great classic items like chicken poutine and Buffalo chicken burgers as well as unique treats like halloumi fries. They’ve got a great patio area with picnic tables to enjoy your food fresh on the spot. Plus I can bike there and not feel as guilty.

In the last few years I’ve taken up cycling and I’m a big fan of places to grab a quick bite while out on the bike. One of my favourites is Bite This in Westboro. They’re just a quick rip off the SJAM Parkway which is open to cyclists on weekends, and they have the best food for when you’ve worked up an appetite. Choosing what to eat is definitely a challenge there. Everything is so good! I’ve had almost every wrap and sandwich they offer, with my favourites being the Greek inspired Zobra ($8.99), Moroccan-inspired Marrakesh ($8.99) and the classic hunger-quencher Cowgirl ($9.50). Their homemade half and half (iced tea/lemonade) is a blessing on a warm, humid day. I’m looking forward to trying their tacos, burgers, rice bowls and frozen mocha drinks. Important to note that they’re closed on Sundays. My Bite This dreams got crushed a few times because I forgot.
