The area
Neighbourhood: North End
The North End is a nucleus of specialty food restaurants and shops, especially around its Mount Pleasant Village area. Frequented by antiquers for its numerous collectable shops, furniture spots, and oddity stores, the North End is a maverick of the quaint and quality. Vintage toy stores, accessory shops, and cinemas welcome perusers to step back in time, while the wide pedestrian squares and the large medical and business community inject it with a dose of modernity. With numerous cafes and Toronto's greatest number of independent booksellers, it isn't uncommon to see folks in this area at their leisure, reading outdoors and in eateries, and taking life a bit more slowly – even if it's only during their lunch break.

We went for a day. It was very busy and shopping mall was unbelievable. We visted the trinity bell center which was around the corner.

I was a regular there when I was in Canada. One can find everything they need on this street. It's an outrageously long street.

This is one of the main streets in Downtown Toronto. Accordingly, you will see a ton of people, both locals and visitors. There are a lot of attractions, such as malls, restaurants, bars, clubs, and other stuff along the street.

I like Yonge Street! I think it gets a bad rap for things that any big city would struggle with. Yes there are homeless people and yes it’s packed all the time. But it’s also fun!! There is so much to see and it really feels like you’re in the middle of everything.

The longest street in the world and it is full of all types of entertainment and activities. It has the large shopping mall Eaton Center. Theatres, Business Centers and hotels. Caution is needed if you walk late at night as accidents might happen. Parking is available around.

A very interesting eclectic mix of places n central Toronto's Yonge Street including a world pop-up street food market. Not the cleanest street but lively.

On our recent visit we were on this street several times from Harbourfront to Carlton. Lots to see, lots of cafes restaurants bars and access to Eaton Centre from the street. The part from Dundas Square to Carlton Street has been cleaned up considerably since our first visit in 1993, but there are still some not so nice parts, but it is worth strolling through. We miss Sam The Record Man record shop, but the logo is featured on a superb mural near Gerrard Street and the neon sign from the shop is at Dundas Square. Interesting busy street.

Whilst the food was good, the prices are ridiculously high. Worst of all you, cannot have a conversation as the place is so noisy and added to that there is loud music. The owner has no clue about using acoustic materials to absorb the sound. Would never go back.

We had a large Hawaiian with an extra topping of Asiago cheese. The pizza tasted extra good. Delivery was on time, and the driver friendly. All good.

With/out a car it is possible to spend time indoors along Yonge, the longest street in the world. I’m laying out 7 possibilities from the Southern to Northernmost stretches of Yonge... 1. Union-Harbourfront Centre—TTC (@UPXpress) from the East side of subterranean Union station, hugging the Front Street underpass, takes streetcar passengers to Pearl restaurant or Harbourfront pond rec. rentals & Art gallery, facing Lake Ontario; or 2. TTC Yonge line takes subway passengers up to Eaton’s Centre mall at rocking’ Dundas Square; 3. TTC ride further to Bloor offers cinema & Eataly dining inside Manulife Centre. 4. Past Midtown’s Yonge-Eglinton traffic, North York Yonge-Sheppard hub has a food court/currency exchange below Winners in the Centre, and Empress Walk (connected to Civic Centre library) has a cinema as well. 5. Viva buses via the same Presto card from the terminus Finch station take passengers past Centerpoint Mall to World/Shops on Yonge (7181 Yonge tower), where 6 Boss Caribbean Jerk and Goobok homemade Korean dumplings and donuts are sold in the food court (2nd floor above Seasons Supermarket/parkade). 6. Further, Viva / carride past Hillcrest Mall Richmond Hill will end at Upper Canada Mall, facing GO transit station. 7. From there, by Eagle-Davis Drive Newmarket, it’s a 20-minute carride East of Holland Landing-Bradford’s Yonge St. Mexicanada to cycle by Jackson’s Point Georgina cafes, along Simcoe Lake shoreline. There’s no shortage of things to do or eat—in almost any weather—around Yonge Street. Whatever your means of travel, expect it to be a very long ride!
