This whole street, for those who know well Australia, is the equivalent of Oxford St in Sydney or Brunswick St in Melbourne; full of life, great shops, cafés and restaurants. We spent hours just wondering around and it really gathers a young and funky side of Toronto.

This is like the Yellow Brick Road from Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Restaurants, shops , music, art, culture, people all at once, all at one street. Make sure to walk through the alley where you can see the graffiti art and take the most colorful and fun pics that would make any Instagram proud to have

A Toronto blog showed me that Queen Street has a lot of stores and it was not kidding. Our walk, roughly from Spadina to Ossington was a wonderful journey through the modern retail landscape. Clothing stores and the like of all kinds are situated on this street, from high fashion to vintage. Interspersed among these were cafes, bakeries, restaurants, and... More

Strolling Queen St is an experience, so many boutiques, bakeries, restaurants. Many cultures along the way that it transports you to different places. You never know what you can see and bargains galore

Love exploring Queen St and King St both as tons of shops, restaurants, theatre, etc. Lots to do. Wander around, explore the Eaton centre, Queen and King St West of Yonge for shopping and eating. Stop at a food truck at Nathan Phillips Square.

Queen street used to be the place to go to experience a more artsy side of Toronto. It has changed a lot but is still worth the walk. If you are shopping start west of Spadina a few blocks and walk east to ossington. There are still a lot of orignal restaurants bars and stores to be found.

If you like graffiti art I would say go to this area. Not only art work there is some amazing coffee shops and shopping areas as well.

Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums, clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers, and painters. With ink on their hands and fabric pelts in their bags, visitors to Queen Street traverse the avant-garde blend of historic architecture and ultra-contemporary fare. Home to some of Toronto's chicest hotels and most modish java fixes, busy with street cars, and always suffused with live music drifting onto packed patios at bars and clubs by nightfall, the vibrancy of West Queen West is undeniable.
