Neighbourhood: East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.

Don't let Covid-19 stop you from Pampering you're Nails

Hello friends I wanted to write a review on Metro Nails on Danforth because this company (family business) takes such pride and care of each and every customer who enters their store.

First thing, as I enter I am ALWAYS greeted with a smile by the owner Victor(who always remembers my name and everyone who is a regular ) usually his wife Jenny is always working away at her main desk spoiling one of the customers with their manicure . She never misses a chance to also greet and smile.

I can't help but notice how clean and shiny everything is and how thorough everyone who works there ; sanitizing consistently and making sure everyone is adhering to the new world rules and practices.

Once seated at the designated luxurious leather massage chairs, I sink into my comfort position as my feet enter a refreshing clean bath .

Once one of my favorite Pedicurista/ Helen starts making my toenails look beautiful once again( this is truly a creative gift she possesses) she gently slips on my feet some paper slippers and she escorts me to the manicurist area where she continues to give me excellent customer service. She carries my shoes and coat and lays my personal belongings gently by my side
.
The service is impeccable and the atmosphere being a corner store is cozy and lots of light shining through the corner windows and even a large TV screen with the latest movie to pass the time.

This is a wonderful neighborhood haunt of mine but anyone who ventures along East Danforth must make it a point to stop by and get pampered by this truly precious find. Even if you stop in unexpectedly, Victor always finds time to book you in the same day even when its busy.

Once again friends ,whenever I find a special haunt of mine, I have to share my views and invite you to check it out for yourself. For those of you who are afraid of these challenging times ,come in and see for yourself and you will be completely reassured of the safety and careful attention to detail this wonderful family provides the most professional customer service! Victor and his team make it a point to give us all the utmost security and peace and harmony that we all need during these troubled times.

I don't know about all of you friends but I feel soo much better when I get pampered especially now and my nails are happy again too!

ENJOY Friends

Nothing out of the ordinary
Jan. 2020
We were referred to Danforth by a waitress in a Toronto restaurant. We found the street very ordinary with basic shops and a few Greek restaurants. My nephew did get a good haircut at a walk-in barber shop though. Otherwise, unremarkable.

Yum!
Dec. 2019
Such good food in Greektown. I especially like Messini and Square Boy. More than just Greek food. There's Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Indian and fast food. Very easy to get to. Just get off at any of the following TTC stations and you are there: Pape, Chester or Broadview. Love walking around on a nice summer day.

Eating on the set of My Big Fat Greek Wedding
Oct. 2019
If you want to see a Greek travel agent, shop at a Greek wedding dress store or eat Greek then this is the place to come.
There is a healthy mix of good food places like The Big Carrot but why you come here is to eat at a real Greek restaurant. There are fewer than there was a few years ago as the Greek family owners of the restaurants run out of descendants willing to take over the business. Nowadays chefs of every culture head up the kitchens but they try hard to maintain the hardy Greek eating traditions of souvlaki and grilled lamb and accompanied by the obligatory two starches of potatoes AND rice. The subway gets you here and drops you off at three stations along the Greektown section of the Danforth.

Nice place to stroll
Sep. 2019
Have lived near the Danforth for a couple of dozen years and while restaurants and stores change (some for the better and some not) the vibe remains one of an easy-going and diverse neighbourhood.

Wow, last time I was there was 15 years ago and nothing has changed. Great good, fair prices and large portions.
Nothing fancy, just all about the food.
