Lifestyle in Toronto Islands
Island residents do most of their shopping on the mainland. However, a grocery store delivers food once a week and the milkman delivers twice a week. Sobeys at the foot of South Simcoe St. is on the North end of the Queens Quay Terminal buliding in Harbourfront Community. Their new expansion is a bonus for islanders who need only hop off the boat to do their weekly shopping.
Life is easy going on the Island. No cars allowed makes for community interaction as residence and visitors alike travel the islands mainly on foot or bicycle.
Located on idyllic Ward’s Island just steps from the ferry dock, the Island Cafe is the perfect spot for a coffee, brunch, lunch, a home baked treat or a sunset dinner. Counter service and take out bar, ice cream, and the garden patio is fully licensed. With pre-orders they will even make you a Picnic Basket for your day on the Island!
