Leslieville for Under $25

Toronto can be an expensive place to be, but it doesn’t have to be. Even in cool neighbourhoods like Leslieville, you can have a fun experience for under $25.

Start at one of Toronto’s best old-school diners, Gale’s Snack Bar. Grab a cheeseburger for $1.25 and finish with a slice of pie a la mode for $1.50. Grab an americano at Te Aro ($2) and walk down to check out the Arts Market (free admission). This market features handmade goods from artistic entrepreneurs.

Once you’re done drooling, hit up Ed’s Real Scoop for, okay, more drooling. Their amazing homemade ice serves up a calorie splurge without requiring a financial one. Get an entire pint for $7 and split it with a friend.
Post-dairy indulgence, celebrate its origins with a trip to Riverdale Farm. Admission is free and the chance to see farm animals, check out the gardens, and enjoy nature is priceless.

After recovering from cuteness overload, head to Goods and Provisions. After spending a day in Leslieville and only spending $11.75, you deserve an amazing cocktail. Get an Old Cuban ($13), and congratulate yourself on an afternoon of frugality and fun.
