One of Toronto's many neighbourhoods, a former village. Trendy, high-end retail and restaurants and medical offices make up Yorkville. Luxury hotels. Interesting boutiques, many of which are one-offs. Lovely chocolate shops, ice cream stops, and atelier-type eateries. Some, pretentious; some, not. Here, consignment shops cater to the rich and wannabe rich. Not to say that designer labels can't on occasion... More

Walk in any direction from Yonge Street and you're reminded that while not breathtakingly beautiful, Toronto is a very pleasant city. Yorkville is one of those nice districts, with lots of restaurants and high end shops. But what helps set it apart is that, despite the condo building boom, it's very walkable with lots of interesting little parks and squares.... More

Several blocks of some of the best high end stores with some of the most sought after designers and merchandise. Shopping is plentiful but not cheap. Interestingly enough there is a Winners amongst all the haute couture stores so if you start to feel depressed that you can't afford anything in Prada, Hermes, Gucci, Louis Vuitton etc. you can stop...

1. This actually is the budding and quality shopping area in Toronto. 2. Shops are still in opening phase and there are very limited number of brands to chose from. 3. Yorkville has many High End boutiques and this area is great for dining.

I used to work in this area, and so spent a lot of time here. It's generally quite pretty and well-kept at all times of year. Lots of good quality food, though it's on the upper end of the accessible price spectrum. Plenty of great stores to shop in, with fashion in abundance.

Cumberland and Yorkville Avenues, especially between Avenue Road and Bay Street, are very good both for shopping and eating. Cumberland with its rock park is particularly nice. One of my favorite restaurants, Jacques' Bistro, overlooks that park. There are many other reasons for visiting the area, not least of them Grigorian's, the best CD store in Toronto.

Toronto is one of the best cities in the world to live in, as the countless livability surveys have demonstrated. The presence of chic/multicultural/eclectic neighborhoods dotted around the very contemporary downtown core is one reason why I love Toronto. Yorkville is no exception. Situated right among the 5-star hotels and office towers is this picturesque nook that manages to incorporate... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
