Roncy has become one of the more interesting neighbourhoods in Toronto, much gentrified from it's more humble origins. Lots of great pubs and restaurants and pleasurable to stroll along. Some nice public parks nearby and a fun Halloween after party for all the creative pumpkins...More

We’ve been hoping to visit “Roncy” for a while and we weren’t disappointed! We parked on Grenadier and walked south on Roncesvalles until we could see Lake Ontario. We enjoyed pub food at Gabby’s and an ice cream at Ed’s. We look forward to our...More

It had an awful, sketchy vibe. It felt like a creepy small town and I felt uncomfortable the whole time there. I didn't enjoy being here and I will not return

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
