Actor Jennifer Podemski offers a trio of options from Toronto to north of the city.
1 Bagel World ( in Toronto)
“It’s my all- time favourite. I’ve been going there for 40 years; I grew up down the street, and I still go with my dad. It’s an institution.”
2 Scandinave Spa at Blue Mountain ( in Collingwood)
“It’s a fantastic place to go year- round. I’ve suffered from Lyme disease for three years, and the healing waters at the spa work wonders on my body, giving me an overall feeling of wellness.”
3 Painters Hall ( in Barrie)
“It has become the place I like to go for special gatherings. I love the atmosphere and food, and there’s a great space in the back with live music.”
