When I travel to Toronto, I generally head to the Danforth to do some shopping and to dine there. From the unique ingredients you can find as a foodie who is Greek to the dining experiences, I spend way too much time and far too much money but I love it!! I love the Mezes Restaurant where the Greek food... More

We love Greektown. Plenty restaurants and stores are along the street from Broadview to Pape Ave. We love Greek parade which is held every year at Danfort.

This place is amazing- especially when its Taste of the Danforth. The choices of Greek restaurants is almost overwhelming. My favourite place is Mencinies (not sure how to spell it), you can dine in or take out. I must warn you the wait here is usually long, but worth it. Also everyone here seems to be having a good day,... More

Just a great place to spend an afternoon or evening. Lots of different stores with many hidden treasures for all budgets and more pubs and restaurants per kilometre than anywhere else on the planet. Plenty of variety not just Greek food. However if you do have a hankering for Greek Food, I would recommend Anesti's. It's on the north side... More

So many interesting things to do on the Danforth. So many different attractions including Carrott Common organic market, Jazz and R and B bands, multi cultural restaurants. Taste of Danforth is a busy but a great event. Visit the Brickworks while in the neighbourhood; Sat am farmers market.

this area is a favourite of my wife. She just loves to walk the street and just pick a restaurant. There are lots - and I haven't had a bad meal. There is a bit of everything - pubs, newer greek restaurants - and a few that are family run for years. The latter tend to look a little dated... More

Prob need o my half a day of you really want to spend lots of time combing the area. But the Main Street is less than 1km my guess. Gab a souvlaki and some authentic Greek food while you tea there! I got the best deal at Square Boy... a fast food but good quality Greek.

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.
