Stores are great - many are Ukrainian/English speaking off course. Bakeries so delightful and yummy with coffee. Open vendors with fresh fruit and veggies in the session and prices lower then chains. Go back into time and enjoy all off its delights.

This neighborhood has it all. Great restaurants, delis, cafes, pubs, boutiques, bookstores, a movie theater, public library, salons, mani/pedi spots - all within a few blocks. And to top it all off you have the largest park in Toronto within walking distance.

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

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

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.
