Weekend Hideaway

We might be getting a blustery nor'wester this weekend, but thanks to the new local called Morgan's at 1282 Danforth, there's a great spot to cozy up and enjoy some indoor sports such as eating and drinking.

Morgans took over the space formerly called Taps & Tales, and while there are still some remnants of the previous tenants, the interior has been redefined by owner Anna Sorrenti. The tan banquettes, oak tables and cozy seating arrangements are reminiscent of a great apres-ski bar in the village somewhere. It makes you want to linger over a glass of Pinot (or anything from their great wine list) just a little bit longer!

The menu is extraordinary. Locally sourced ingredients and a passionate, experienced kitchen staff make every dish a winner. Appetizers like calamari and pan-seared scallops have a perfect consistency and are an ideal accompaniment to main dishes like game hen and black cod. If you're not in the mood for a full meal, the charcuterie plate has a delectable selection of smoked meats and pates that you will not want to miss, paired with a pint of one of their many local craft beers.

The piece de resistence? The sticky toffee pudding was perhaps the best dessert Pioneer has experienced at a "pub" - or perhaps ever.
