Toronto restaurants and food shops offering takeout and delivery during the coronavirus pandemic

With all restaurants and bars halting dine-in service to help flatten that curve, many establishments are offering takeout or delivery to feed house-bound Torontonians and bring in much-needed revenue during what could be a devastating period for the industry. If you don’t feel like plundering your pantry supplies just yet, these Toronto spots are still serving food, albeit with restrictions in place to ensure social distancing. (And in these uncertain times, this list is subject to change.)
