Variety of cute little stores and look for unique things, bakeries, cafes, pubs and restaurants. on both side of the street. Nice for a stroll and to sop for a coffee and pastries or icecream or eat something new and different.

If you prefer to shop at little retail stores instead of big supermarkets this is a great area. There are many fruit and vegetable stores as well as butchers and bakeries. Also boutiques and wine and liqure stores.

Fun area to get different food and see wonderful bakeries. In the summer you can cross the street and go to high Park, and all year there are many European restaurants with authentic cuisine to test you.All home n]made for the most part.

Lots of shops but not many restaurants really. I finally found something at Jane Street - forgot the name but it was small but good. Shopkeepers are very friendly!

Bustling commercial and high-end resident area with great small shops, businesses, LCBO and a librarian. Mega Save Optical has lovely frames and lenses for as low as $120 . Highly recommended.

I like this neighbourhood, usually budget friendly, lots of student friendly places due to promiscuity with the University, you will find a very good diversity of good quality restaurants, best sushis and korean places of the city. Subway line all along is also very convenient.

West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry
and creative persona of the West End thrives along its
streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries,
restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be
found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer
spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End
attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry
professionals to its living quarters. It is in the

20 minutes by subway/underground train from the center of downtown Toronto. hotels are very expensive and sterile. I recommend airbnb. lots of great options.

We are staying at the Old Mill Inn this month. We might eat at their fine dining restaurant, but would like the option of walking to a nice nearby restaurant on Bloor West. Could anyone recommend a good place? (nothing fancy and we like most cuisines) Thanks!

Yes ... there are sidewalks. Go to google maps and take a little walk around the area. Joan - you may have to jump on the subway for a couple of stops. Going east from the Old Mill you'll hit Bloor West Village and High Park areas.
