Brimming with local art, food and music, The Annex is a home away from home. Rooms sleep between two and four guests, and have a fresh feel with whitewashed walls, wooden floors and crisp linen. Toronto touches are everywhere, from the art on the wall to the books on the shelf. The Brunswick Patio is the place for breakfast – tuck into pastries from nearby bakery Mabel’s while watching the world go by from the street-level window.

The Tartan House B&B

For something a little more Scottish, book a stay at The Tartan House, which has a real Highland feel to it. Walls are painted in rich reds and bedspreads, chairs and tablecloths feature tartan patterns. There are just three guest rooms – in king, queen and single sizes – so you’ll feel welcomed and at home straight away. Breakfast is a hearty four-course affair – arrive hungry.

Hotel Ocho

Located near the Queen St. and Sullivan St. streetcar stops, this hotel offers clean and comfortable rooms – and is next door to a great cafe for breakfast. The decor is minimalist – think whitewashed brick walls and unfussy wood furnishings. The hotel has a restaurant that opens for lunch and dinner, but in the morning you’ll be spoilt for choice with nearby cafes. Try the Dark Horse Espresso Bar for your caffeine and pastry fix.
