I went to high school near Bloor West Village and remember it before the box stores. Quaint, charming, lots of European bakeries and delicatessens. The asian stores full of fresh fruit, vegetables and flowers. Such a great neighbourhood.

Great selection of green grocers, deli`s and the abundance of coffee shops. Plenty of parking and a place where the shopkeepers know your name.

This Toronto area has it all: character, easy access, on the Bloor subway, restaurants, an amazing huge park, multicultural atmosphere, a cornucopia of food stores, modern and cheerful elegance, and cleanliness to a fault. A few fashion boutiques have original styles, my favorite is "Cora". You can wonder along, window shopping, entering here and there, picking up a souvenir, and... More

There are a number of festivals in this area, when the restaurants and shops really showcase their wares. The neighbourhood really shows its true self during these well attended festivals. Fun for all ages, but crowded at peak times.

I grew up near Bloor West and I still visit every time I go home. All the little shops are still there, even though a lot of bigger chain companies have come in, Bloor West still has the charm of years ago. Make sure you stop in Sunglow Bakery and get a ham and cheese croissant, heated. Lots of coffee... More

Lucky enough to stay with relatives in this area. Great subway access to the whole of Toronto. Excellent cafe and eatery places all along the street. High Park is nearby to run around in and has outdoor swimming pool

I really thought I was in for some kind of a treat. Nothing special whatsoever. My hometown of Rochester, NY has better shopping on Park Ave and believe me: that's not saying much. It was nice to have a little less population than in the heart of toronto but I wouldn't bother making the effort to get to bloor west... More
