Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ)

Restaurants in Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ)

This chain of British-import coffee shops offers surprisingly tasty food. Stop in for panini or ciabatta sandwiches, Mezzalunas (olive oil–infused pizza pockets), internationally inspired salads, and hot chocolate made with Belgian couverture, milk, and zippy orange syrup.

This restaurant shares a name—and an aesthetic—with Toronto’s streetcars. Handrails line the dark-red booths, track marks decorate the floor, and the tables all have “windows” (actually large color photos) over the city’s areas of interest.

A nod to “the Beach,” a hippie-turned-yuppie Toronto nabe on the shores of Lake Ontario, this café has a wide-ranging menu—think spicy Thai soup, curried chicken tikka masala, and expertly muddled mojitos.

Skip the airport’s multiple Starbucks outposts in favor of this homegrown Canadian coffee chain (founded in Ontario in 1964).
