Greektown on the Danforth is no the same anymore .Many Greek restaurants are gone and replaced by other international cuisines.You can still find good Greek food here and the Greek festival in the summer is great place to be and feel like a Greek

Taste of the Danforth in summer 2017. Fun and food .... wow! Souvlaki, Gyros, Lamb chops, chicken, corn on the cob and more. Bands and Ice cream and Toronto Sports teams, Banks and beer. Toronto East General support, stores open with special sidewalk sales too.
