Such a wonderful place to visit. Many different ethnicities offering fabulously different foods, entertainment and community flavours.

Spent some time wandering the Bloor West Village strip when I stayed at the Old Mill. Lots of interesting food options (see my review of Bloor Jane) and interesting shops. Some yummy looking bakeries: try Hot Oven or Anna's. Check out the Shoppers Drug Mart in a converted theatre - very odd layout for a drug store but very cool... More

Regular visitor to this area and great buys to be had. Great restaurants, good mani/pedi spots, excellent veggie shops and super stops for a new outfit - all within a few blocks. Love it!

This happens to be my neighbourhood and we love it. Great little shops, butchers and very good veggie vendors. Even a movie theatre remains at hte western most end of the strip. The bakeries of course are a staple and gluten free meals are offered in one of the small restaurants! Bonus! Lots of cafes and the even a Starbucks!

Have you ever walked down a street in any city and heard another language? If you walk down Bloor Street between Jane Street and Windemere, you'll feel like you are in another country. Bypassers will hear Ukrainian and you'll feel as if you're walking in a Ukrainian village instead. With many Ukrainian shops, including some fantastic butchers and dessert cafes... More

The naan wrap on their club sandwich was burnt, destroying any redeeming quality. The sweet potato fries were average to good, as was the chicken wings. But the burgers are plain vanilla, as were the arugula/watermelon salad. To be fair, we originally wanted to eat brunch at the Good Fork on Labor Day but we were given a 45-60 minute... More

Last week after my Pilates session, I enjoyed this wonderful neighbourhood stopping to shop in several of the delightful stores and boutiques. Here one can find many unique products and local handcrafted goods. Absolutely delightful + well worth the trip.

Love the shops and friendly folks. Unfortunately most shops are 90% not wheelchair accessible. Can be pricey. Mostly good quality products.

It's always a pleasure to take a stroll through the Bloor West Village. Coming from a small town, I love the fact that the buildings are smaller and the stores aren't of the "big box" variety. I love The Coffee Tree and Anna's Bakery.

Thank Rebecca L

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
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 cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
