TORONTO — Hopscotch has opened its third location in Toronto. Located at 224 Queen Street W., the fast-casual restaurant is known for its chef-inspired menu using fresh and locally sourced ingredients.
To celebrate the opening, Hopscotch is donating all opening proceeds to Toronto Foundation for Student Success. “We’re ecstatic to finally have our doors open on Queen Street,” says Aiden Booth, who co-founded Hopscotch in 2015 alongside his brother Wyatt. “We’re also thrilled to be, once again, donating our opening proceeds to a local organization. Supporting and inspiring the community around us has always been a cornerstone of the Hopscotch mission and is one of the aspects of this business we’re most proud of.”
The more than 1,500–sq.-ft. restaurant features 30 seats and a menu offering a variety of vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free and gluten-free options.
Continuing Hopscotch’s tradition of teaming with outside chefs to bring in new, innovative and fresh offerings, the brand recently collaborated with Canadian chef and restaurateur Vikram Vij to introduce three new seasonal menu items. Selections include Curry On, with a base of brown rice and mesclun greens, topped with chicken, butternut squash, edamame, cauliflower, broccoli, scallions, cilantro and crispy chickpeas covered in curry sauce; Butter Days featuring Indian butter chicken, butternut squash, broccoli, cauliflower, cilantro and crispy chickpeas over a bed of brown rice and romaine and served with naan bread; and Beets by Vij with beets, sesame-roasted tofu, Portobello-mushroom mix, organic quinoa, kale, radish, carrots, mint and sesame seeds tossed in a sesame-ginger vinaigrette and served with naan bread.
