For those seeking the best office lunch ideas in Toronto, you’ve come to the right place. It can be hard to decide what to go for, chiefly because there are so many amazing options when it comes to pickup and/or delivery options. But upon some first-hand research (we’re big foodies at Ritual, after all!), we think we have found the best lunch takeout places in the city, all of which are phenomenal options for catering a meeting or a team lunch.

1. Sandwiches, Bagels, Wraps, Soups

Terrific panini bars such as Nook offer wholesome toasted sandwiches, which, just glancing at their social media handles, makes one’s taste buds glisten with anticipation. But if bagels are more your thing, you can order from What A Bagel. Then there are coffee shops - we all need a shot of espresso from time to time, and Aroma Espresso Bar is one of the best in the area, and it sells all-day breakfasts and lunch items such as soups and sandwiches too. Conversely, Ravi Soups offers top-tier soups and can be picked up or delivered.

2. Healthy Salads and Bowls

For the more health-oriented days, there are a number of amazing places to turn to that provide some of the best business lunches in Toronto, from salads, bowls, and other plant-forward grub that is fantastic for your office’s productivity and well-being. The list includes establishments such as FLOCK Rotisserie + Greens, Imperfect Fresh Eats, iQ Food Co., and Kupfert & Kim, where it’s easy to get your greens in!

3. Sushi, Poke Bowls

If you can’t get enough healthy options, there are some amazing sushi bars such as Kibo Sushi and Saku Sushi that deliver the goods (literally and figuratively), and also terrific poke bowl options such as Pokito. It’s all in the name.

4. Pizza, Pasta

If you’re in the mood for Italian options such as pizza or pasta, then look no further than Pi Co. They deliver some of the freshest pizza in town, including several signature options as well as build-your-own pies. Equally, you can turn to Fusaro’s, which deals in authentic Italian fare, from pizza to fresh pasta dishes. With both options, you can’t go wrong.

5. Middle Eastern

For the middle eastern touch, Paramount Fine Foods offers the full kaboodle from starters, sides, and salads, to platters, pizza, and even dessert. Yum yum. What sets these guys apart from your average middle eastern establishments is their old-school use of wood-burning ovens, charcoal barbecue meats, and handmade desserts. More like a middle feast, right? nom nom.

6. Curries, Roti

Finally, from wraps to curries and some great universal reviews to boot, there is no better option for curries & roti than Saffron Spice Kitchen. They have some delicious nutritious offers, including their signature dish, Kothu Roti, made from Gothamba flour, which is essentially chopped roti meat mixed with curry sauce. It’s very popular around the world and should be in Toronto too.

The Conclusion

Toronto is positively bristling with options when it comes to office food ideas. This is owed to its being one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world. Because if there is one thing cultural diversity brings us, it’s an abundance of cuisines. If you live here, you are in luck because there are so many Toronto office catering options. Which is the best business lunch in Toronto is a question without a simple answer because of the many possibilities listed above. And that’s not all; we’ve barely scratched the surface.

All of these restaurants can be ordered through Ritual, so if you want to delve into the best office lunch ideas that are the most in demand among your team, then consider starting your program with Ritual today.
