“Always makes me feel "unworthy"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Oh Yorkville... Occasionally I like walking through it, but most of the time it makes me feel unworthy. The shops are all very expensive, as are the restaurants. The people that live and shop in this area always appear snobby and you see so many luxury cars, Porsche, Ferraris,... We always go car-watching in the area, but we never do anything else.
It's worth taking a look at, but don't go shopping or eating there unless you want to pay unbelievable prices - that's what you get for being one of the richest areas in Toronto...

“Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Walked everywhere here, poking into the shops and cafes to see what's going on. Keep going on your feet and don't miss the neighborhoods.

“A little village in a big city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

A little gem of a place, and somewhere else I went back to a second time. First visited with my niece on a Sunday morning and into the afternoon. Wandered around initially just to get my bearings, then a great lunch, and even greater shopping.
It's great for a spot of browsing and window shopping, but possibly even better if you don't need to ask the price of anything. Some of the stores on the main street give off the slightly intimidating 'come in if you dare' atmosphere, but the smaller shops are a bit more approachable. We found a little stationers which I went back to buy a couple of cards.
On my second visit, solo this time, I found the very up-market Whole Foods Store - it's worth a visit just to see the uber-trendy lunches people were buying!
I would definitely make time for a good wander around the little lanes, and stop off for a meal or just a coffee.

“Expensive and showy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Nice high end shops and good crowds at varied clubs. Restaurants a little over priced but match the area.
