Visiting the St. Lawrence Market

We had a filling breakfast at a great place called Marche, so we were not able to try this famous sandwich

The market had plenty of shops, restaurants and bakeries. This is Stone Mill Bay House, everything looked so good and the prices were very affordable

While walking through Chinatown, we came across this sign with a dubious claim

When in Canada, everyone loves Slurpees. We went to a local 7-Eleven

We finished the evening by listening to some music at the Toronto Jazz Festival at Nathan Phillips Square

Whew!  And thus our great day in Toronto… And next time we’ll do the ROM, the Toronto Islands,  Harbourfront and get lost in the Path.
