Happy Monday, Toronto! I’m sure we’re all happy to see the hints of warm spring that’s been around, because of course that can only mean one thing: patio season! One of the best times of the year, am I right? Lots of cool restaurants to check out too, and this time around, we’re covering cool Ethiopian spots for our restaurants of the week roundup. Take a look at the full list below.

The restaurant has two locations in the 6ix, one at Bloor and the other at Danforth East. To say the menu is a long one would be an understatement. They offer everything from seafood and meat dishes to burgers, rice and a separate vegetarian menu. For beverages, you can make your pick between wine, champagne, beer, coffee and tea. Both locations are open daily from 11am.
