The Historic Broadview Hotel has a trio of elegant dining options and a killer rooftop view

Torontonians watched with wonder during the recent renovation of the historic Broadview Hotel, anchored at Broadview and Queen Street East—the gateway to the east end. Built in 1891, the building has been carefully restored and reimagined as a 58-room boutique hotel and buzzing hotspot with no less than three separate restaurants. For travellers, the hotel rooms are luxurious and playful—a great place for out-of-towners (or locals on a staycation) to lay their heads. And the well-executed dining options have put the new hotel squarely on the map as a dining destination.

The Broadview’s Café + Bar is a light-filled space with all-day dining options, from a light croissant and coffee to a fresh lunch or steak frites or rainbow trout dinner. The Civic is a graceful restaurant showing off the building’s splendid architecture; exposed brick, factory glass windows and a long wooden bar—with cuisine inspired by historical menus executed with modern flair. There’s also a killer wine selection. Finally, The Rooftop, with its wrap-around glass façade and pyramidal skylight, offers a stunning view of Toronto’s skyline and the Don River. Enjoy the view and the vibe while dining on sharable plates and drinks with friends!
