I love Yorkville so does my daughter. She grow up visiting Yorkville every week. She loved playing on the famous rock in Yorkville. She took piano lessons at the Royal Conservatory since she was five and after her each lesson on Saturdays, we had to walk through Yorkville so she could climb the rock and sit for awhile. It did...

We shopped all day. The boutiques and cafes and restaurants filled this unique Toronto neighborhood. Narrow streets and well-dressed shoppers reminded us of a European city. Parking is available. There are many coffee houses and inexpensive eateries that do not require reservations . It is very u iwue

Use to eat at Movenpick it was good , now gone, I have noticed if I am not mistaken that some of the old classy homes now shops are being torn down for more modern structure Toronto developers have their way a bit too much when it come to getting rid of Toronto's classier structures.

The Bloor Yorkville is the most upscale pedestrian area of Toronto. Some very nice shops and cafes plus high end retail.

Yorkville has an interesting history -- from hippy dopey hangout to a nice mix of upscale and still funky to the current pretentious vibe. The worst part is, amidst uber expensive condos and high end retail shopping -- the restaurants are on average, well average!! Better dining experiences elsewhere in diverse Toronto and friendly places. (I work in the area!)

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
