Amazing Area to walk.

In this commercial area you find a lot of good clothes stores, restaurants and Museum. Is funny to walk around Bloor Street from Avenue Rd to Church St.

Lots of shops here, particularly for clothes, but I was expecting more from the area. I managed to get a couple of bargains at one shop (jacket and wallet for under 60 dollars), Winners, and a couple of doors down you can find jackets that cost almost 2,000 dollars! So there's certainly a varied mix of shops for all budgets... More

I was so looking forward to walking around Yorkville given all the positive TripAdvisor reviews. While there were a number of high end shops, the overall ambience of the area was nothing like LA 's Rodeo Drive (which some people compared it to). We saw very few fashionistas on the streets, so we missed out on people watching which would... More

Yorkville is a must visit to any tourist visiting Toronto. It has the right combination of designer shops, restaurants with outdoor patios, high end hotels and a great vibe.

We stayed the night in Yorkville and enjoyed every minute of it. There are great little shops and eateries to investigate during the day and the place really felt alive once darkness fell. Friendly, lively and safe -- a rare combo in the Americas.

Changing over the years. Still great place to stroll. Lots of over priced upscale shops. Buy your wife an original Louis Vitton purse. Great restaurants. Great people watching.

I hadn't been in Yorkville in many years, 15-20 years ago this area had a lot of prestige, everything was high end, you really felt in a different world. We went there in early August, I was shocked! Firstly, a ton of construction work was going on, destroying the peacefulness of the place. Second, a number of stores were closed,... More

Even if leaving empty handed after a whole day around the streets of Yorkville - I felt excellent. The charm of the place and broad variety of eating out options is well worth the visit, especially if you are the urban type, loving a sophisticated crowd and environment. Great collection of high-end fashion stores with above board prices... and good... More

Lived 2 blocks from Cumberland on Lowther in the Annex. Have to say we spent many an evening dining here at a number of restaurants and dropped a few bucks in the many boutique shops that make Yorkville what it is. Have sat across from the Starbucks on one of the brownstone's steps people watching and met numerous celebs including... More

This area of Toronto has all the high end stores and restaurants you are looking for, as long as you have deep pockets. Even if it's not in your budget it's well worth the visit to just walk around see what's available.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
