Our visit coincided with the Christmas Season. Lots of snow and lights. Quite magical but very cold. We enjoyed visiting some shops as well as window shopping. Good coffee and selections of eateries available.

Yorkville is a charming street even if you are not there during the warmest months of the year. With -10 degrees outside and flurries it was still an enjoyable walk. Very nice restaurants and boutiques.

Yorkville is one of my favorite areas in Toronto for a stroll and for summer evenings (many rooftop patios!). Yes, it does have some overpriced restaurants and stores, but if you do some research beforehand, you'll find some affordable spots to grab a drink or bite. The one plus is parking in quite inexpensive here when compared with other areas... More

Expensive dining and shopping district meant to lure the jet set and Torontonians who like to feel the glow. This and Cumberland are a block from Toronto's answer to LA's Rodeo Drive, though a bit of the glitz moved south to King Street with the film festival. Nice rock park, comfortable scale, and enjoyable if you keep an eye on... More

An area of the city that you can dine in elite restaurants, see and meet movie stars, browse or shop for designer wear and jewels, and view many fancy cars. People stroll the streets of Yorkville especially during the summer, in their finest of wear, and it feels like a tropical isle. There are many outdoor patios, with patrons dining... More

Village feel in the City! Lovely restaurants and coffee bars here. You feel like you are in a small village within the City. Image it would have a great atmosphere at night

Having participated in the design and the building of the park in Yorkville it is always pleasant to visit and see how many people enjoy just coming to sit on the rock and to experience the center of the city in a peaceful, quiet environment. This visit I ran into an old friend Gary Smith who is a Toronto Artist... More

Whether it's the film festival or a movie in the making, Yorkville is a favourite of many celebrities when they're in town. Yorkville is one of Canada's most exclusive shopping districts. Bring your camera because you never know who you'll bump into!

Yorkville is a fine place. It, along with its slightly less sophisticated and less chain-store oriented step-sister, Bloor West Village, is an upscale neighborhood filled with boutiques, along with a dearth of chain stores that you would find in many-a North American neighborhood. Yorkville has upscale hotels and a long strip of shops and restaurants. While there are some nice... More
