Vibrant neighbourhood

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.

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

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!

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
