Mary Be Kitchen
Yonge and St. Clair was blessed with this bright and welcoming spot a couple of years ago, and it’s a must-try for those looking for healthy food done remarkably well. Combos like their “be square” box combine 2 sides and a protein, with creative combinations like grilled salmon with masala cauliflower or sesame soba noodles. While their brunch offerings include healthy, creative takes on breakfast like red lentil dahl with a slow poached egg served with sourdough. Mary Be is available on UberEats, and provides the option to buy meals for frontline workers: marybekitchen.com
