I don't find it too impressive. Lots of shops, that's all it is. Good to kill time in a lazy afternoon.

The little shops are nice. It's not what it used to be. Big business is pushing mom & pop out grudgingly. It's still nice to walk around & shop on a warm day.

It's fun to roam down the street and explore the different shops, bakeries, restaurants and salons. A very pleasant place to spend a morning or afternoon!

The neighbourhood around Bloor Street West is a buzzing and lively area to visit. Nice, friendly people and a lot of shops & cafes to enjoy. Visited during a day out in Toronto recently. Nice!

The people are fine, the restaurants are nothing fancy, and the shops are largely independent but not of the interesting variety you would see on Queen West. If you live in the area it can be a good place to walk through for a bit and there are a few shops of note: Bloor Meat Market, Max's, etc. But if... More

From baking shops, to coffee shops, restaurants, miscelaneous, parking space, bright strip of Bloor West. Closed to High Park, many things to explore, to see and to be seeing.

Great area to be! Always lively, and the people are very pleasant. They were giving out FREE flowers for Mother's Day - how sweet! The shops here are a bit pricey, as it is more middle income families that live here and shop here. Lots of places with very delicious food here too!

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry and creative persona of the West End thrives along its streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals to its living quarters. It is in the cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
