Last summer, I wrote a massive article for the HIH community that rounded up my favourite healthy restaurants around Toronto. Because, as much as I love meal prepping, sometimes I just want to go out and treat myself to a healthy meal that I don’t have to cook… without worrying about completely ruining my progress or eating foods that my body really doesn’t love.
One of the healthy restaurants I mentioned in that article was The Green Wood - a cozy breakfast, brunch and lunch spot that’s inspired by clean Mediterranean flavours and comforting home cooking. Despite having to make the trek out to the East end, The Green Wood has always been one of my favourite spots for a fresh, locally-sourced and unbeatably delicious meal. They truly never disappoint!
I was secretly hoping that one day, The Green Wood would find a spot closer to me...and, this past January, they answered my prayers by opening their second location in the West end - right smack dab in the middle of the Fashion & Entertainment districts.
Naturally, I had to be one of the first to check them out for a Saturday afternoon brunch. (And I can hardly wait to visit again to check out their awesome dinner menu!)
But, before I get wayyyyyy ahead of myself - keep reading on for some more details about my overall experience and fave menu items.
