This actually is the closest shopping /restaurant area that Canadians can compare to South Beach in Miami. From the vast choices of restaurants and cafes , shops , art galleries,salons & hotels. Yorkville has many more High End boutiques. The area is full of energy and a great place to stop for a bite ,lunch or dinner or to shop.... More

I love Yorkville! I grew up in Toronto, moved away, and am now back for business. I was invited to the preview of the Rooftop at Montage last night, I hadn't been back to that location since it was Remy's back in the day. The service was amazing, every staff member was on hand for the occasion and the food... More

That's my one beef about Yorkville is it's just too small. Not enough to walk. It is packed with boutiques and great restaurants. A good people watch area even if you just go for overpriced drinks.

I still remember how it was in the late '60s when driving through, we had to keep our car doors locked, with all the people around some drunk others on drugs. I also remember excellent "Cake Master" Bakery that was so popular a place that I would get fresh bake... More

We had no idea we were staying in one of the most high end areas of Toronto but WOW! The boutiques, restaurants and people watching were worth every penny. Luxury cars and beautiful people.....oh and maybe a few panhandlers. Will stay in this area again and visit.

Yorkville gave us a fantastic shopping experience with plenty of top shops from around the world. All staff in all stores has been very friendly and helpful. Inbetween there are lots of cafes and restaurants to choose from and plenty of interesting people to watch.

I'm not rich but felt like it while strolling this district. The famous Bloor street for high end fashion. The pricey but tasty food. You might catch a celebrity or two. A hub for the Toronto Film Festival activities. Feels like a little ritzy L.A. Village.
