Nice neighbourhood, nice shops; not worth a trip from downtown if you are a tourist but if you are in the area stop and shop.

Bloor West Village is one of the up and coming areas of the city. Despite the presence of upper middle class residential enclaves on either side of Bloor Street, the area was a bit rundown until a decade ago. Now gentrifying at a rapid pace, it hosts several cafes, bookstores, restaurants and shops. It is an interesting place to visit,... More

Really has a village/small town feel and yet is within a metropolis. There are a range of coffee shops from independents to chains. A good number of pubs, again independents and chains serving good food and beer. Area is also home to good fruit shops.

Very quaint place to walk around on a Saturday or Sunday morning. They have a lot of deli's on this street, with some cool restaurants. I also like the nifty shops. I used to walk down here quite a bit.

Bread and Roses a great spot to sit and have a bowl of soup and a sandwich on a warm or cold day. The hustle and bustle of shopping alongside everyone is fun and you have to learn to move quickly with your bags amongst the shoppers. It's a great area of the city, I love it.

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.
