Buying your first home is no easy task. Buying your first home with your parents who are out of town is an absolute nightmare! But somehow, Jamie was able to very successfully deal with both my parents and myself.
The Annex, now over one hundred years old, is not only the most eclectic of Toronto’s affluent neighbourhoods but also the most heterogeneous community.

In a nutshell, Caffe Doria is a nice little Italian cafe at Yonge and Roxborough. The cafe has a lovely lunchtime patio and serves up good, simple food. Couple this with its reasonable prices, and you have a few reasons why it’s become something of a casual Rosedale neighbourhood go-to spot.
Their tidy selection of typical lunch foods includes soups, pizzas, and salads of all kinds. An ever-changing soup of the day and about a dozen varieties of pizza and salad keep things fresh, and although I do enjoy the food just fine overall, their panini were disappointing and I wouldn't recommend them.
However, on the bright side, the cafe offers a nice breakfast menu — fruit salad, a selection of bagels, frittatas and so on — complete with a full espresso bar and a nice selection of teas.
But no matter what food you grab, try to get a seat on the patio. It has a great atmosphere and a relaxed vibe. The patio is what gives Doria a lot of its charming reputation as a fun, laid-back cafe to check out.
I thought the service was fine enough, and the food tasty and filling overall, but even though Caffe Doria is a nice place to go if you’re in the neighbourhood, there really isn’t a rush to get there. Almost everything about the cafe is alright, but other than the lovely patio, nothing is too extraordinary.
