Meet Toronto Insider: Sonia Mangat

"The people in the city have definitely inspired me. Toronto people, and the culture here, it's very loving, very inviting and wild and warm at the same time."

Sonia Mangat is a host and entertainment reporter. Toronto's entertainment and arts hub drew her to relocate from her home on the west coast to the 6ix. Now thriving in the city, Sonia works as a broadcaster for Etalk and CityTV Breakfast.

Sonia not only feels inspired by Toronto but also appreciates the city for its people and its welcoming, exciting culture. Whether she's enjoying a relaxing day to herself or exploring the city by night with her friends, Sonia appreciates all of the opportunities and options for excitement that Toronto provides.

Sonia's Top Toronto Picks

What's your favourite time of year in Toronto? This is tough, but I will say summer. The amount of festivals that this city has to offer is unreal!

Favourite Toronto neighbourhood: I have so many favourites, but I love the relaxed vibe in Leaside, and I love the busy vibe in Yorkville.

Most underrated spot in the city: The most underrated spot in the city is Bloor West! After attending Salsa on Bloor West, I had no idea how many great restaurants are in that area!
