“Enjoyable walking area of Toronto”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

I like picking an area and exploring it on foot. The Danforth was perfect. I started west of the Bloor Street viaduct and walk across it onto The Danforth proper. As background info I found by Googling, an old walking tour, article on the addition of the "Luminous Veil" on the viaduct, the Toronto library also has a short history of the Danforth available online, lastly it makes me want to read Michael Ondaatjie's novel, In the Skin of a Lion. Great area fully of interesting shops, restaurants and history. You can walk up on side of the street and down the other. Great Saturday morning in Toronto.

“public awarness”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Sorry (if i am being negative) but we all need to be informed about (the elements that minimizes our neighborhood quality...
Some of our local business owners such as MR. Ramish Kalrah who currently owns (the Dollar plus store located at 108 Danforth Ave at intersection of Danforth & Bowdview) but not (S K Dollar plus that apparently he used to own) prices / social & professional atitiued and honesty needs a strong (public & professional review). cheers

“nothing special”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

I really do not know if I'm missing something, but I don't get what all the fuss is about. The food is nothing like real greek food.
