In support of local businesses, we have compiled lists of Restaurants, Local Businesses and Basic Needs Retailers that are open in our neighbourhood during COVID-19.
Our lists are accurate as of May 1, and we’ve made every effort to be as comprehensive as possible. As additions, updates or corrections are submitted, we will update these lists regularly.
Please be aware that everyone is operating with different days and hours of operations, which we chose not to include due to the fluid nature of the situation.
Be sure to contact the business you’re interested in to learn about whether they have special hours for seniors and vulnerable people, delivery or curbside pick-up, etc. Weblinks have been listed where available simply as the clickable word Website.

LOCAL RESTAURANTS

Eat out!  Well okay, bring it home and dine in!

Did you know, according to a survey done between March 25-29, conducted by Restaurants Canada (a national not-for-profit organization representing Canada’s diverse food industry):

  • 800,000 foodservice jobs have been lost across the country since March 1
  • 80% of restaurants have laid off employees since March 1
  • 70% of foodservice operators will cutback further if conditions don’t improve
  • Nearly 10% of restaurants surveyed had already closed permanently with another 18% saying they will have to close permanently within a month if the current conditions continue

These are staggering statistics.  We have a lovely collection of independent, owner-operated restaurants in our neighbourhood.  They need our business, and they need it NOW!  Let’s all do everything we can to support them.  Please think to give yourself a treat at least once a week and dine locally.

The restaurants we list are currently open for take-out, whether curbside pick-up or delivery.  Let’s make sure they all survive COVID-19 so they’re here for us to enjoy a dine-in, social-closeness experience when this is all over.  Where will we go to celebrate the end of COVID-19 if we can’t dine out in our own neighbourhood?!  It’s up to us – we can make a difference.

Elle Cuisine

And for a completely different experience, though not specific to Bedford Park, this small independent Toronto catering company has been brought to our attention.  Elle Cuisine has completely reinvented itself to stay in business.  Perhaps they have something to suit your culinary wishes too?  Read about them by clicking HERE, and browse their website by clicking HERE.


SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESS

Shop close to home.

Community businesses have also been pushed to the limit, and unfortunately many have had to close.  But quite a few are still open.  Please try to get out for curbside pick-up or delivery from these businesses too.  We’ll want them to still be in our neighbourhood when this is all over.
