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

From a Toronto local and a former tour guide of the city, this is one of the best areas in the city to get food. It's cheap and it's good. Extra points go to those that try a local favourite: all you can eat sushi (Poutine from Smoke's Poutinerie is also a favourite). Prices should be no more than $15... 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

Wanting to do something a little bit different on Mother's Day with my family, I suggested a stroll through Bloor West Village. It seems alot of other people had the same idea, although we had no issue finding parking across the street from High Park. What I really like about this area is how few big box retailers are in...

This is where i grew up in the 60'-70's. It was a quaint 'village' at that time with interesting shops, fruit stores and meat markets. This high rent area has changed that somewhat and the feeling is not quite as quaint. It is still a nice place to shop with some European stores still surviving. The Humber river park and... More
