My kids lived here for a while so I spent tons of time pushing a stroller along this stretch. Really interesting walk. Loads of great restaurants and Carrot Common is an interesting little square with cute shops and health food spots.

You do not have to love Greek food to visit here. We do because we love the food, atmosphere and shopping. We like to visit on nice days and stroll the shops - have a nice Greek lunch and hit the bakery before we go home. Athens bakery - yummy!!! Get the little donuts with honey. When you bite into...

The Danforth was my stomping grounds for years. The aroma of the foods, the sights of the culture and the TASTE! Anyone looking for Greek cuisine or culture has to visit.

One of the most popular neighbourhoods in Toronto, you will be delighted with the assortment of authentic Greek cuisine available within a short half mile. Some old school, some more trendy, but tasty nonetheless. A definite stop for tourists. Easy access from the subway. Parking available in paid lots and meter parking. If possible, check out the annual Greek Festival... More

Love the night life,and the Authentic Greek food all across the Danforth. Our favourite dining experience is the Pan. George and his family "do it right". The belly dancing on special evening is a real treat. Food is phenomenal. Anywhere you stop you'll enjoy.

There are lots of Greek restaurants locating along the Danforth Ave. No need to bring a car as parking is very limited. Taking the subway and get off any station between Pape and Main. Greektown is very busy and vibrant during the weekends. One can get fresh produces, eating out or simply walk for window shopping. Every year I go... More

If you like Greek food, this is the place for it. However, we find it's very touristy and not too authentic, more Canadian style Greek. It's a very busy and popular place so hard to park. It's nice to walk around in the summer, but too cold in the winter.

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.
