Bloor-Yorkville Has Plenty of Lunch on the Go Options
1235 Bay Street
As the name suggests, Calii Love brings a coastal influence to its menu with a variety of poke bowls, smoothies, salads, and handheld sandwiches. Their aim is to provide nutrition-focused dishes, offering healthy choices for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The chef at Calii Love works with a nutritionist to create menu items that are not only delicious but health-conscious as well.
Dice Fruit Bar & Cafe
162 Cumberland Street
A great choice for a coffee and a parfait to go! The founders of Dice Fruit Bar made it their mission to travel the world and discover everything fruit could offer, and upon returning to North America, Dice Fruit Bar was born.
For a fresh snack on the go, try one of their classic “fruit jars,” layered with goodies like coconut yogurt, chia, and overnight oats, or you can treat yourself with one of their cake jars that blend superfood fruits with dessert fillings such as cacao pudding, no-bake cheesecake, and frozen yogurt!
Kupfert & Kim Yorkville
83 Critchley Lane
The perfect “meatless and wheatless” quick-service option. Kupfert & Kim offers plant-based and minimally processed food that is “awesome for humans, animals, and our planet.” It’s hard to go wrong with the K&K menu, since it’s packed full of healthy salads, bowls, and soups. The Bloor-Yorkville location also features an all-day brunch menu, so if you’re feeling like a fancy avocado toast or oatmeal bowl filled with nuts and seeds and berries, they have you covered.

Over at Bloor and Church, you’ll find Mad Radish, where nearly every dietary preference can be met. Their burritos, hearty bowls, soups, and salads feature bold South American-inspired flavours and ingredients to delight “flexitarians, vegans, and everyone in between.” The concept behind Mad Radish is to provide a redefined “fast food,” concept, prioritizing healthy eating while on a lunch break or in between fitness classes.
