I hadn't been in Yorkville in many years, 15-20 years ago this area had a lot of prestige, everything was high end, you really felt in a different world. We went there in early August, I was shocked! Firstly, a ton of construction work was going on, destroying the peacefulness of the place. Second, a number of stores were closed,... More

Even if leaving empty handed after a whole day around the streets of Yorkville - I felt excellent. The charm of the place and broad variety of eating out options is well worth the visit, especially if you are the urban type, loving a sophisticated crowd and environment. Great collection of high-end fashion stores with above board prices... and good... More

Lived 2 blocks from Cumberland on Lowther in the Annex.

Have sat across from the Starbucks on one of the brownstone's steps people watching and met numerous celebs including... More

This area of Toronto has all the high end stores and restaurants you are looking for, as long as you have deep pockets. Even if it's not in your budget it's well worth the visit to just walk around see what's available.

An okay area to be honest. A little over hyped and soulless but well worth a visit. Lots of restaurants and decent shops to visit.

Used to be overrated but good place for high end food/shopping and people watching. Bit of an unofficial luxury car show at times to make it interesting. If you like to spend big bucks you will find it here and selection rivals Rodeo Dr. in LA. Good spot for Celeb watching if that's your sport.

Once the area where most of Toronto's 4 star restaurants and hotels were located. Shopping was of the kind -"if you have to ask how much it is, you can't afford it". Neighborhood has toned down over the years as other high profile districts have challenged Yorkville. They still give you a peek into how the upper crust lives -... More

Too much street repair and construction on roads interrupted what might have been pleasant walking tour of this expensive neighborhood in late May 2015. Pan-handling people were there asking other people for donations. Men sleeping on the street in the late morning and early afternoon did not beautify the neighborhood or make the visit any safer. I found the street... More

Yorkville is a really nice street with many stores, coffee shops and restaurants. The street surrounding it are as beautiful and alive. In this area there are many designer stores but also some common affordable ones. I would really recommend to look it up for a few hours while in Toronto. Be aware of the construction on some streets.

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.
