I always like to just park the car and take a walk with the family because of the lively vibe of the area. There are many, many fashion designer stores and fancy restaurants lining Yorkville Avenue and nearby streets. However, most of Toronto's upscale fashion designer stores are located on Bloor Street and not actually Yorkville Avenue. There are a... More

One of the fanciest and most expensive places in Toronto. Super close to Bloor St. where they have lots of huge brand name shops, I guess the expensiveness must have rubbed off into this area. This area is primarily fantastic restaurants, of which I have always gone to for a date and have never been disappointed. There is a really... More

Heard a lot about Yorkville and I remember it from previous visits albeit some time ago now. Found that a lot of the older style houses and buildings have been replaced, and during our visit, it appeared that Yorkville was undergoing massive reconstruction which was a little off putting. However when it is done,perhaps it will regain it old style... More

A very well designed upscale neighborhood where all the celebs come to dine during TIFF. The hood has some great condos, small parkettes and plazas where you'll see lots of little luncheons. Yorkville has some great restaurants and bakeries too, but the most popular spot has to be Hemingway's. In the summer their patio is packed and for good reason.... More

Yorkville is in it's element in the summer (like the rest of Toronto). There is a good set of high-end shopping, restaurants that won't necessarily break the bank or just hang out in the park and people watch. My recommendations here are Carole's Cheesecake (best cheesecake in Toronto!), Sassafraz for dinner or Hemingways for drinks. There is also a great... More

If you love to shop and have deep pockets visit Yorkville. From gucci to LV Rolex and Burberry to name a few. Check out Babaluu supper club for a latin experience. You will also find the best hotels in town

Every year in February comes a magical experience in Yorkville. IceFest. If you can't get to Ottawa or Quebec City, you can have a delightful time looking at the Ice Sculptures here. You can watch the carving live. Careful though, the sculptures don't last as long as in our friendly cities to the North as the weather in Toronto is... More

Italian modern in feel and sleek decor. Very friendly staff. We stopped in on a cold Saturday morning for breakfast....nice surprise. Several types of omelets and one daily omelet special for less money that the menu options. Light lunches, pastries and excellent coffee. Omelets made to order, just the right size, served with home fires and crunchy toast. Refills on... More

The wife always likes to go down to Yorkville to look through the fancy shops, the boutiques and try nice lunch or dinner. I have to admit, I enjoyed it too. Wonderful high-end stuff, typically massively overpriced but fun to look at. The Syria has maintained its charm over the years. I was happy they finally got rid of the... More
