Food / Drink Apps for Toronto
Order from your favourite restaurants before arriving. The initial intent of this app was for downtown workers to not waste half of their lunch hour standing in line. The stress was real if you weren’t sure you would be able to order and eat your meal before your lunch break was up! Your food will be ready in a to-go bag, but you can stick around at the restaurant if you want.

Find out when the next few TTC buses or streetcars arrive for your stop. Favourite the ones you use the most for quick access. It’s perfect to help you figure out when you need to leave your home or office to catch the next bus on time (without waiting in the cold/heat for so long). There are a number of apps that will keep you up to date with TTC’s bus service, though this is my favourite one so far.
