Very nice borough! Everything is next door! A plenty of restaurants, shops and services. The TTC line is going along Danforth and is in 5 minutes walking everywhere.

Took the metro to Pape or Chester and walk along Danforth - Greektown. Lots of shops, services, restaurants, cafes. The street signs are English and Greek, Greek and Canadian flags are on each pole, banners across Danforth say welcome to GreekTown. We were here for a night of great greek food and we were not disappointed. The restaurant was very... More

We enjoyed walking on Danforth and view the many restaurants but best of all I like buying fruits and vegetable from the asian small stores. The produce is fresh and the prices are lower than large grocery stores.

I feel that Greektown is one of the better ethnic communities in Toronto. There were certainly enough Greek restaurants to give it a Greek flavour. I don't know what it's like at night but during the day it is rather low key.

I visited the area expecting a lot of Greek shops etc, I live in London and know quite a few Cypriots and speak a little of the language. It was very disappointing, my cousin from New York also felt it was a complete waste of time. The spanikopites was lovely and substantial. No lamb souvla only chicken and beef.

There are a variety of restaurants on the Danforth. A little research will get you to one that's not a chain and that has more than "street" food. The stores are also fun to visit, bakeries, grocery, "wedding", toys, candy. Fun really for the whole family, but also great for a date night.

This area offers a glimpse of the real Toronto without the glitz and polish and is fun and worthwhile. Lots of local color and flavour and good restos abound for a great meal in a fun atmoshere.

Fun area. Good food. Some nice little bars and cafes too. Lovely Greek Souvlaki on the go. Apparently much improved under the current executive!

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.
