A neat little neighbourhood, almost a small town unto itself, but in terms of the exotic it fails to deliver like some other neighbourhoods in the city do. Works better as a launch pad for exploring High Park.

Great shops and things to see, fun to just browse around. Recommend taking this area in when in the city.

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...More

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

Hi! We're actually looking to going up for the festival. How far is this from downtown?! Do you have any recommendations for hotel nearby or in the downtown area?!?

20 minutes by subway/underground train from the center of downtown Toronto. hotels are very expensive and sterile. I recommend airbnb. lots of great options.
Can we rent a bike to ride along the waterfront?
