Last week after my Pilates session, I enjoyed this wonderful neighbourhood stopping to shop in several of the delightful stores and boutiques. Here one can find many unique products and local handcrafted goods. Absolutely delightful + well worth the trip.

Love the shops and friendly folks. Unfortunately most shops are 90% not wheelchair accessible. Can be pricey. Mostly good quality products.

It's always a pleasure to take a stroll through the Bloor West Village. Coming from a small town, I love the fact that the buildings are smaller and the stores aren't of the "big box" variety. I love The Coffee Tree and Anna's Bakery.

In this day of Mega Malls and Big Box it's really nice to has this kind of alternative. Best of the 'villages in the city'. Greek town, little Italy, Roncesvale, all of the others are nice, each with their own feel. For me it's being able to walk from my home and get what I need from people that remember... More

i've been frequenting these parts for some time now and i always find the best place to do lunches with business counterparts, that is to say the atmosphere is positive in such that it makes for good essences .

Stay at the Intercontinental when you visit this area. Great location for all your shopping and eating needs. This area is like the Rodeo drive of Toronto. Gucci and Prada to name a few hot spots

Great place for a leisurely walk. Tons of good bakeries and delis, as well as some cute restaurants... but choose the mom and pop shops and you wont be disappointed!

It's a decent neighborhoods with some nice shops, but it's not what people always think it is. It's nice for a brief afternoon and perhaps a visit to High Park, and that's it.

This has to be one of the greatest neighborhoods to live in. Everything is still mostly family run. I am happy that they kept out the big box stores. Walking the area is the discovery of things gone past. A very vibrant place.

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
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 cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
