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!

This area is rich with Greek cultural imprints and wonderful restaurants of many ethnicities. The heart of the area is at Danforth and Logan Avenues, with Chester or Pape being the closest subway stops. The map location given here is incorrect. Danforth and Coxwell is well away from Greektown.

Mezes on Danforth is a fabulous Greek restaurant. The service was great and food even better. Crowded and reservations recommended, but I guess that speaks for their food. Had the typical pork souvlaki, and it didn't disappoint. Couldn't eat it all, but only because of the generous portion. Highly recommend this place.

The Danforth is nice,although I don't go there too often. Pantheon in myopiion one of the ebst Greek restaurants in Toronto (although very noisy!). I liek the crystal shop called Gifts form the earth in Carrot common or some independt shops nearby by health food store (althoguh bit overpriced compared to Kensington Market). called the Big Carrot.

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.
