    Lots of stores but now so "high end" that other than the usual mall stores it's just expensive stores that can afford to be in this mall. The old food court used to have better options - now less so. Lots of parking. Easy to get to with a car at 427 and Queensway.

    Great cheese store, they also have produce, meat, deli meat, and a varietà of international and local products. I love that they sell imported authentic tortellini. The brie was great and the stracchino was a pleasant surprise. Love the products they make themselves, including the cheese!

    This place is PACKED with antique and vintage fine china, silver, collectibles, jewelry, crystal, paintings, small furnishings. Really, it's almost too full. DO NOT bring your young children, make sure you carry your purse or back pack, and don't wear swinging coats, you WILL hit something!! The staff are very knowledgeable about their patterns and their stock, and willing to help when they can. The vintage fine jewelry is beautiful, a lovely variety of gemstones, settings, metals.

    Located in Kensington Market, this store is a great place to look for souvenirs, gifts, and household items. There is a wide variety of items including many local products for sale.

    This store is so cool! They have a great collection to choose from, and the quality of their material is amazing. I can't wait until their custom side is open!

    I'm not even a Harry Potter fan, nor have I watched the movies. But this store is like a showroom! It felt like I was in a museum.

    There is someone in my life who is a big Harry Potter fan, so I was able to get some birthday and Christmas shopping done here. But I found myself buying non-Harry Potter items for myself. I loved the duck-footed picture frames! I also really liked the novelty dish towels.

    My advice is to peruse their online shop first before you go there in person. Otherwise you get 'lost' looking at all the fascinating items.

    Easily accessible from the newer subway line this mall seems to be undergoing a transformation with lots of cool shops and one of our fav restaurants (Moxies) well worth a visit

    I was looking for a ruby and diamond ring and I found one I was interested in on Van Rijk’s website. After checking out Van Rijk online I enquired about the ring. Barbara sent me a beautiful video of the ring along with details and pricing as I was unable to visit the shop because of COVID-19 travel restrictions. I purchased the ring and after it was sized I saw another ring on their site that I was interested in. Barbara very kindly and patiently sent me photos of both rings next to each other so I could compare them. While I decided to stay with my original choice Van Rijk was willing for me to change my mind and order the other ring. Long story short I received my beautiful ring via international shipping a few days later and I love it!

    One of the best and oldest comic book stores in Toronto. The Silver Snail is always a treat. They have a large selection of comics, graphic novels, games, and fandom merch. It's a nerd's paradise! They frequently run events like author meet and greets/book signings. Their staff are super friendly and helpful. There's an awesome cafe attached to it called the Black Canary that has excellent food & fandom-themed drinks. The cafe overlooks Yonge Street which is a nice urban view. The whole place is also really cooly decorated. It's located near the Eaton Centre and is within walking distance of other attractions, shopping, and restaurants. 10/10 would recommend. If you need another reason to visit, they charge USD cover price!

    This is such a lovely and unique used book shop! You’ll find a vast selection of vintage treasures in there! We saw some books from the 1800’s and to me, that is more than worth the visit! The biblio-matic is really fun as well. It’s $3 per person, you can only do it once (a day, I believe) and you get a randomized book. If you love books, I highly recommend stopping by here and picking something up!

    This is the place you've always wanted to take your kids, but didn't know existed!

    It's located in that mall on Don Mills, the one that's impossible to find a parking spot.

    Someone there said during the winter they have ice skating. For me I liked the lack of dogs, and oddly enough people watched their own kids.

    The grass in my pics is Astroturf.

    Although there is wifi, they want your e-mail address, not a bad trade considering all of the pokemon to be had! There is a gym, and a stop right on this location!

    Right downtown and a 5 minute walk from the Eaton Centre/City Hall, Ben McNally is a beautiful bookstore. It's quiet, independent, well lit, and clean. It looks like something out of a movie from the architecture/interior. I didn't interact with the staff on this visit as I was just browsing and didn't have any questions, but I would definitely go back.

    One of the other oldest comic book stores in Toronto, The Beguiling is my go-to place for indie comics, local books, comic events, and rare/hard to find books. They carry a lot of indie work and can usually order things for you if need be. These are also the people who organize the Toronto Comic Arts Festival. The staff are always super friendly and helpful. Would totally recommend!
