Visit for a wonderful meal, an event, perhaps some great shopping. Just visit. The people are welcoming and helpful to visitors alike. Many restaurants and shops. I enjoyed the clothing stores. There is a festival in the fall that you must attend...@ 250,000+ Torontonian's enjoy it each year.

if you have never been try it but I found after several years it is too crowded and basically restaurant food sold on their street location. They need to provide more things to do,,entertainment rather than a Greek food fest. Forget about parking..use the subway/taxi.

Greektown on the Danforth ... sounds delicious, but the reality is that the quality of food has gone down considerably since I first visited 20 years ago. Of course, it could simply be that my tastebuds don't appreciate Greek food any more, but I doubt that. Of the several restaurants I've tried in GreekTown over the past 2 years, the... More

If you love Greek food, go there. Every year there is a food festival in July along this strip of "The Danforth" area (which is the eastern extension of Bloor Street). It is easily accessible by subway and you can walk along the main area from one subway stop to another. My husband proposed to me in one of the... More

This area is one of the best in Toronto. Almost every business is independent and offers a truly unique experience. The area literally has everything you could need, from basic needs, groceries and pharma and home goods, to unique boutiques and gift shops. While most of the original greek themed stores have moved on from the past, you can still... More

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.

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.
