The Cricket Club area offers a wide variety of activities, amenities, shopping and restaurants. No matter what type of dining, cultural or historic atmosphere you’re looking for, the local restaurants will fast become family favourites.

Sometimes we’re look for the new place on the block, which is all good & well, …but let’s not forget the tried & true…

Auberge du Pommier ~ 4150 Yonge Street ~ 416 222 2220

The building is a former French cottage built in the 1860s, and this high-end fine dining location focuses on quality French cuisine. Auberge du Pommier is considered one of the foodie havens in uptown Toronto with a complete wine list, a warm fireplace in the colder winter months and lush green gardens in the summer.

Cravings Asian Cuisine ~ 3393 Yonge Street ~ 416 322 2200

Having opened their doors just three years ago, this has definitely become a wonderful destination if you are ‘craving’ Japanese, Thai or Chinese.  Wonderful ambience, delicious dishes … an absolute must!!!

Miller Tavern ~ 3885 Yonge Street ~ 416 322 5544

The Miller Inn building dates back to around the mid-1800s, originally surfacing as the historic York Mills Hotel. Named after a local mill owner, it had a sordid past nearly a hundred years ago involving gambling and police raids during Prohibition. It also served as a prime location for weary travelers between Lake Simcoe and Toronto. Now Miller Tavern, a fine dining seafood restaurant complete with Oyster Lounge, it’s as much a part of uptown Toronto history as Yonge Street itself.  It also boasts one of the city’s largest outdoor patios…an absolute must, for those hot summer nights…

Wildfire Steakhouse & Wine Bar ~ 3438 Yonge Street ~ 416 483 4800

This fine dining steakhouse only uses Quebec-sourced maple charcoal and has an open concept kitchen. Wildfire Steakhouse & Wine Bar has a wide wine selection that has won the Wine Spectator Best Award of Excellence three years running.

Organic Oven Bakery & Cafe ~ 3189 Yonge Street ~ 416 489 7777

This bakery & cafe offers certified organic and fair trade coffee as well as healthy baking and custom specialty cakes for any occasion and food allergy or preference, including vegan, egg-free, wheat-free and dairy-free.

Of course, the true deal breaker in any neighbourhood’s appeal cannot be left untouched. There are eight Starbucks and eight Tim Horton’s locations in the immediate area around the Cricket Club.

All good things, so much to offer…so close to home.  Stay tuned for the next update, on the new local hot spots!!
