So manicured, it's lost its charm. Also, now that the Film Festival has moved from there, this area holds less interest for many. Hazleton Lanes could be anywhere. Was lovely when the skating rink was in the middle. Wholefoods with inflated prices and food that is sometimes off has eradicated many smaller stores with its expansion, one-of-a-kind feel lost. Lettieri's... More

the story in the photo attached. this is a story already 26 years old that speaks to the forming of the Village of Yorkville. a tonguee in cheek memory of the coming together of the people in the Center of the Center of the Universe

I've never found a day that there wasn't something happening in the park, in the galleries, shops, bars, restaurants. Shopping on the Mink Mile--Bloor Street, Yonge to Avenue Road and on Cumberland and Yorkville Avenues is next to none. Many historical buildings are still preserved in the area housing shops, salons, galleries and professional offices. Sad that the events for... More

This is a great neighborhood. There are lots of high-end stores comparable to Fifth Ave in NYC. There are some tangential gritty sections that are more "real" if that is your thing. The Whole Foods on Avenue Road is a great place to pick up food as an alternative to restaurants. There is a cute section with little houses that... More

This is the poshest place in Canada. It is not an area for people on a budget. Dress up. Go to Cumberland Street, get a $15 coffee and sit around and watch the Ferraris and Lamborginis go by. They also call it the Mink Mile because all the big brands line the street (Bloor Street) like Gucci, Mont Blanc ($700... More

The area is loaded with shops, and the chance to see the area is a great plus. Do get a little something to remember the trip, we have been there several times and of course we often visit many of our favorite places.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
