I had heard this place was a Instagram must and I can understand why. Almost every inch of the alleyway is covered with fun unique graffiti art. It is a fun place to go with friends and it won't take up much time at all.

Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is
one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's
neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums,
clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the
funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to
stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and
vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca
for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers,

No, I personally would not consider this a romantic spot, it is truly an alley and there is garbage and refuse all around. To avoid crowds I would suggest getting there first thing in the morning.

It is a c space. I would say it would be risky but it can be an inappropriate place for that.
