“Wonderful shops in a diverse neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

There are so many different shops and intriguing store fronts that becon you to enter, in this diverse neighborhood. It's a blend of old and new with restaurants and bakeries for every kind of palate. Have brunch or just coffee in one of the many "outside" cafes. You will not be disappointed.

“Nice area for a stroll”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

I really love this area and try to visit it whenever I go to Toronto. Clean, safe, and has tons of personality. Sit in a café or just people watch.

“Take Your Time & Stroll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Go early at night - like 6 or so - to get parking in a public lot behind Bloor, or maybe on street if you're lucky. Walk a few blocks to get the feel of this great neighbourhood.

“Great Neighborhood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

If you want to experience shopping or window shopping or go for dinner or beer in a local Toronto setting, this is the place. Great neighborhood, great crowd, and the beautiful High Park is just a walking distance. Lots of local stores and restaurants and pubs.

“Great area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

I last visited a few days ago, this was the area I've lived in for over 3 years. To be safe, over 3 1/2 years. It got different shops ranging from restaurants, bookstore(s), drugstore(s)/pharmacies,hair salon/barbers, etc.. Excellent!
