I found myself on a Monday eve zooming through U of T. It was a windy one so had one hand on my bike handle bar and another clasping my hat so it didn’t fly off my head and wander its way through The Annex. I had been looking forward to it, a delayed birthday celebration with two of my favourite woman both of whom have a penchant for cheese and boy talk. I was so delighted when Karolyne and Steph proposed the idea of a birthday binge on Harbord Street.
That evening we started off at Harbord House in search of a quick drink and wee snack before indulging in cocktails and burger bliss at The Harbord Room. To be honest I found myself a bit confused at one point, was I heading to a room? A house? As long as I’m on Harbord I think I’m in the right place.
The Harbord House seems like the perfect spot to enjoy an ice cold beer on a hot Spring or Summers day. They have great patio space and a double decker restaurant for those who want to stay indoors. I was pleased by their beer lists dedication to novelty local craft beers which would be our focus on this visit.
I attached myself to Beau’s, Karolyne opted for a piece of the Junction while Steph sampled Great Lakes. We caught up on life while gluggin’ our suds over a creamy Ale, Bacon and Cheese dip. We discovered that evenin’ that Harbord House is the perfect spot to start the party.
