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

The Yorkville District of Toronto is candy to the urban gawker. The fashionable Bloor Street district that encompasses Cumberland St. Yorkville and Avenue Rd. and University is delightful in the spring, summer and autumn seasons. Sitting on a patio, watching shoppers, fellow tourists, fashionistas is delightful. This area boasts fine hotels, restaurants, coffee shops museums (Royal Ontario Museum) and the... More

Kumari's store not only sells junk it also lies big time. an item with price tags on it and bill showing was purchased recently and she refused to even look at it and only repsonded on the phone that she is not taking it back because it is supposedly vintage - not surprising that a bully also lies. This store... More

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.

Yorkville had been through several phases in its historical growth. 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
