Tons of food options, great ambiance, good music - all in all really great experience on the Taste of the Danforth. It's not 5 starts due to the insane amount of people and the long lines that form, which detract a bit from the enjoyment. That said, certainly planning to coming back

Over the first Friday-Sunday in August, Greektown on Danforth Avenue becomes "The Taste of Danforth" and "Music on the Danforth." We ere there yesterday with 750,000 Torontonians and Visitors. Three stages with a variety of entertainment, mostly bands of every genre. Greek dancing lessons, raffles, all the local sports stars, a couple of hundred food stalls selling mostly Greek and...

Love this event. There is great food, fun atmosphere but the crowds and line ups are incredibly irritating after a while. I went last night and there was about 100 ppl in line waiting for a gyro and we could hardly walk through the festival without constantly being bashed into. Probably not a good place to bring really small children... More

The road was shut down for the weekend for this festival. A lot of stores and restaurants participating in the festival. Lots of things to do and see. Three large stages are set up for shows and music. Their are rides, games and a lot of food. This was our first time going to the festival and my family and... More

For one weekend each year the Danforth turns into a street festival celebrating Greek food and culture. It is a great place for the whole family with food booths shops and stages displaying all things Greek. Souvlaki, spanakopita, gyro and backlava, are among the many treats available.

Strolled along for several blocks, looking at shops and restaurants. Many people do not realize that much of the movie, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, was filmed in Toronto. The business that was converted into the Mount Olympus Travel Agency in the movie is located at 439 Danforth Street. Many of the other street scenes were filmed on Danforth as... More

Lots of restaurants. Lots of coffee places. Lots of desserts. Lots of bakeries. Lots of what the Greeks call "kefi". Spend an afternoon shopping and grab a lunch. Or head on down for a stroll in the evening and dinner on a patio. A must visit for travellers to a Toronto.

Stroll along the sidewalks of Greektown and you'll pass an endless row of restaurants, pubs, cafés, clothing shops, and organic grocery stores. Restaurants options abound, offering not just Greek, but also Italian, Mexican, sushi, tapas and more. Stop at Logan Ave to sit by the fountain and watch the crowds go by. Some big chains have moved in as rents... More

A Greek ethnic neighbourhood with lots of restaurants & shops. One gets the flavor of Greece with Greek speakers & music. Restaurants with Greek food abounds in this 2-3 km stretch of Danforth. Vibrant & lively, clean streets.

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.
