Nice District for a walk, coffee, good meal or a gallery visit, especially during summer when restaurants open their patios and there is plenty of activities around. The atmosphere of this area is unique.

Many cafes and restaurants. A brewery. Independent shops, galleries, antiques. It's a very small area packed with lots and lots to see.

Ok to walk around but not much to see, under my expectation. Good choice of restaurant, nice patios. But too small, some art work. We can walk through the whole area within an hour.

I live just outside of Toronto and when I come down to the city I always try and make a stop here. If you want to find a good place to eat and drink the distillery district is where you should go.

If you are hungry and thirsty, the distillery district is the place to go in Toronto. Beer flows freely here (although is not free). It is often brewed right on the premises. For an enjoyable night out with friends, this is the place. The beer...More

Make this a must-see in your visit - especially with kids, as it is a car-free shopping area with room to run about, interesting shops and restaurants, and a fun atmosphere.

...they should have preserved much more of it. Beautiful architecture, cobblestone streets, cool and unique shops and restaurants, nice art galleries. Highly recommend you make the trip to this district and have lunch or dinner while you are there.

We did an afternoon visit and we're disappointed. Too many coffee shops and expensive clothing stores. Most of the places we would have liked to see like galleries etc were closed.

This is a great area to explore, unique boutique shops (not chain / mall stores) and lots of good restaurants and a number of art galleries as well. And it's close to / on the edge of the heart of downtown Toronto.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of

Parking is a bit of a challenge anytime but during the week the south west parking lots are a good place to start . There is some street parking North and east of the east entrance but usually very scarce.

If it's art galleries you want, Queen West might be a better bet. It's a stretch of Queen St. west of downtown. TripAdvisor won't let me post a link, but google "Queen West galleries" for what's happening at the moment... More
