This area offers a variety of Greek and other types of restaurants, but also lots of bakeries and stores to wander into.

Greektown is amazing and a must see. Lots of patios, open very late. Line ups to get in to restos at 10pm. Great priced greek food can be found. Try Mezas or Kalyvia if you can get in. Keep away from Mr Greek, this is no place to try a chain. Taste of the danforth festival can be overcrowded on Friday nights, so take it in during the off hours. I mean being crushed by throngs in the street is not fun. If you go east past Greek town, you will find amazing selection of Arabic restauraunts from Turkish, Lebanese, Afghan etc. There is a big Mosque out there so this stretch is hard to miss.

Every time I go back to Toronto I visit the Danforth, I love the area, like a little piece of Europe. The vast range of restaurants never disappoints. Ouzo and Christina's are my favourite.

Take a stroll down Greektown for whatever your heart desires -- Greek food is abundant obviously, but you'll also find great pubs, sushi, Indian, Italian, gelato, coffee shops, Yogurtys, and even an amazing Brazilian steakhouse.

My go-to's after living in the 'hood for more than a decade:

GREEK: Astoria (skewers). Megas (service). Pan (saganaki).

ITALIAN: Pizzeria Libretto.

PUBS: Auld Spot (get their drummies), Allens and Factory Girl (back patios in the summer).

DESSERT: Dolce (gelato). Athens (loukemades, aka honey balls).

COFFEE: Crema.

SUSHI: Sushi Delight.

SHOPPING: Body Blue and 507 (clothes), Ballisi (shoes).

Though it is called Greektown, you can find just about any kind of food on the Danforth. At night you'll see young people prancing around, from nightclub to nightclub. Families crowd to the more traditional restaurants. Avli and Pan are probably the best of the Greek restaurants, but you'll also find sushi, Mexican, Spanish, European, etc. etc. Great people watching from the sidewalk cafes. Also great clothing the best selection of high-fashion, high-quality, good-for-your-feet shoe stores. Not to mention Book City, Ten Thousand Villages, Carrot Common (a huge natural grocery/beauty/drugstore), an improv theatre.
