The West End has some great spots where you can grab some cozy eats and drinks while exploring the beautiful fall setting in the neighbourhood.
In collaboration with the West End Business Association, here are some of my recommendations on where to cozy up this season.
Cafe Portrait opened earlier this year and has quickly become a local favourite coffee shop. Sit back, relax and be inspired! The cafe recently launched brunch worth trying with favourites like Shakshuka, Miro Benedicts and so forth. For a more unique beverage, try their traditional Turkish Coffee brewed over hot sand.

Seek comfort this fall season with a tasty handheld at Vonns. This gourmet burger house opened up this past summer and has burger options featuring beef and chicken as well as vegetarian. If you're feeling hungry, go for the Daredevil which has 3 classic premium patties.

Newly opened just a few weeks ago is MuMu Kitchen which specializes in Korean Fried Chicken. In fact, there are 14 options ranging from original, sweet & sour, honey garlic, soy pepper, green onion, and so forth. For some cheesy comforts, there is the Snow Cheese Chicken; Cheezy Bacon Potato Pancake; and even Cheese Kimchi Rice.

The West End's newest Mexican restaurant is Holy Guacamole. On the menu are tacos & tortas; enchiladas; burritos and more. They also serve breakfast until 3 pm. For those wanting to eat more plant-based, they have Beyond Beyond Burritos which I enjoyed with a housemade horchata and freshly deep fried churros.
