The Best Picnic Baskets in Toronto

The Best Picnic Baskets in Toronto

The Best Picnic Baskets in Toronto

The best picnic packs in Toronto will see you through a season of eating as many meals as possible outdoors.

After trudging through winter and the soggy, grey deception of spring, double-digit temps automatically inspire city folk to crawl onto any available patch of grass they find. It's finally summer -- the season Canadians wait for all year long! -- and we have unwritten permission to while away the hours parked on a blanket, sipping low-alcohol beverages and expending only as much energy as needed to bring delicious bites of food to our lips.

From breakfast and brunch to snack time or dinner, there's a picnic pack in the city guaranteed to suit your al fresco cravings. Read on and toast the season with the right picnic pack, a drink at hand, and nothing to clutter your thoughts except what to reach for first.
