This area is a place for lots of people watching.Theres a european square with a fountain where people congregate and socialize. Lots to see and lots of good food to eat, from Greek to specialty ice cream shops. It does get very busy so if you dont like crowds, you might want to sit outside on a patio and watch... More

I loved walking along the Danforth. Great shops, like 100 Mile Baby and the Big Carrot. Great cafes, like Mocha Mocha and some wonderful restaurants specializing in Greek food. Unfortunately We couldn't eat at all of them.

You can find anything you want or need here, and the vibe of the place is super friendly. I love the Greek restaurants, the quaint artsy shops, the specialty shops (fish, meat, sweets), The Big Carrot and so much more. Used to walk there every day in the summer with the kids when they were younger.

Visit for a wonderful meal, an event, perhaps some great shopping. Just visit. The people are welcoming and helpful to visitors alike. Many restaurants and shops. I enjoyed the clothing stores. There is a festival in the fall that you must attend...@ 250,000+ Torontonian's enjoy it each year.

if you have never been try it but I found after several years it is too crowded and basically restaurant food sold on their street location. They need to provide more things to do,,entertainment rather than a Greek food fest. Forget about parking..use the subway/taxi.

Greektown on the Danforth ... sounds delicious, but the reality is that the quality of food has gone down considerably since I first visited 20 years ago. Of course, it could simply be that my tastebuds don't appreciate Greek food any more, but I doubt that. Of the several restaurants I've tried in GreekTown over the past 2 years, the... More

If you love Greek food, go there. Every year there is a food festival in July along this strip of "The Danforth" area (which is the eastern extension of Bloor Street). It is easily accessible by subway and you can walk along the main area from one subway stop to another. My husband proposed to me in one of the... More

Staying in East End

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
