We’re big fans of travel at Dash Hudson. ✈️ We’re always jet-setting to visit with our customers and participate in the industry’s raddest events (looking at you Girlboss Rally), around the world. And if we’re being honest, there’s nothing we love more than filling the gaps in our schedule with the best places to eat, drink and capture content for social.
Raise your hand if you’ve ever spent hours scrolling Instagram planning your next trip so you don’t miss all the best places. 🙋♀️🙋♂️ We’re right there with you — creeping all of the hottest spots from our favorite travel accounts, local influencers, and, quite often, our customers! That’s why we’re launching the Dash Hudson Instagram Travel Guide series with the must do’s when eating, caffeinating, and exploring in all of our favorite cities — so you can spend less time scrolling and more time touring.
To stay true to our Canadian roots, we’re kicking things off with a guide to Toronto — Drake’s hometown north of the border, not to mention, land of the 2019 NBA champions, the Raptors! 🇨🇦
But first, coffee — @dineencoffeeco
Coffee fuels the world and girls run it. 🏃♀️Dineen Coffee Co. is a boutique coffee house with three locations in Toronto, and they don’t just serve up delicious cups of jitter juice — they have classic vanilla soft serves, lemonade, and decadent croissants, too.
Bonus: If you’re travelling with a furry friend stop by Dineen Outpost’s dog window for a freshly baked dog-safe treat baked in-house. 🐕
Relax and Rejuvenate — @hermajestyspleasure
Yas Henny — pamper yourself after back to back meetings and give your hands the break they deserve from shredding on your keyboard all the day long. Majesty’s Pleasure is what your self-care dreams are made of, with a tall glass of your favorite cocktail to boot.
Patio Vibes — @theporchto
Arriving a day early or staying for the weekend? Stuck in the city on a gorgeous day when you’d rather be on a beach? The Porch is your best bet to take in some sun, fun, and chill out with a cool drink and your friends — and of course, land that IG shot of the CN tower.
Vegan Eats — @plantayorkville
Is it even a travel guide if we don’t give you a vegan option? You won’t have to search hard for your next Instagrammable meal thanks to Planta Yorkville. Chef David Lee’s 100% plant-based restaurants offer a locally sourced menu with everything from indulgent breakfasts to all the pasta and sauce you can get your hands on.
Strike a Pose — #graffitialleytoronto
If you don’t have time to check out Toronto’s Aga Khan Museum, you can take in some local art in Graffiti Alley, located in Toronto’s trendy Queen West neighbourhood. Brighten up your Instagram feed posing in front of some dope painted wings and see your engagement take flight.
Cocktail Hour — @bar_raval
The perfect place for meeting with clients, friends, or a treat by yourself. Bar Raval will quench your thirst — even for the non-alcoholic crowd. Voted the number one bar in Canada’s 100 Best guide for the second year in a row, if you don’t visit Bar Raval did you even visit Toronto?
Sweet Treat — @gloryholedoughnuts
Glory Hole Doughnuts is serious about doughnuts despite its risqué name. From PB&J treats with a twist to classic cinnamon sugar, Glory Hole Doughnuts has what every sweet tooth is craving — even select vegan options!
And there you have it. Toronto has something for everyone, and our guide is Instagram verified by our lovely Customer Success team serving our brands in the GTA. Where will we cover next? Somewhere west and south of the border…that’s for sure. 😎
