Toronto, we know you’re doing your best to practice safe social distancing while supporting local businesses at the same time - thank you. Here at Dipp, we want to help you discover and learn more about your local neighbourhood. It’s hard to keep up with what’s going on, which restaurant is open, how menus are changing, new events, etc., so from now on, we will be highlighting a new neighbourhood each week providing all that information.

Introducing OpenTO

With that spirit in mind, we have launched a new online portal called OpenTO. Here, you’ll find up-to-date information on businesses that are open and serving the community. For now, you can view restaurants filtered by neighbourhood, check out their updated hours of operation, and any delivery or takeout methods. We currently have over 100 cafes, bars and restaurants on OpenTO, and are adding more daily.

5 Toronto restaurants you can find on the OpenTO portal
