There isnt much at all to see as the little area is modernized. Oh and don't follow Google map! Took me round to nowhere! Head to Gladstone Ave on Dundas West instead. The cafes are mostly not prominently light up so unless you walk close...More

My partner who is from Portugal really disliked this neighbourhood. Too many Brazilian places and most of the establishments were all fake. Also, many of the stores were closed on a Saturday afternoon. Probably would not come back again.

I used to live in this hood a few years ago and go back every once in awhile. It's changing with quite a few trendy non Portuguese restaurants opening up. They attract a young hip prefessional crowd. Most of the old school restaurants are gone...More

If you're in the neighbourhood it's worth a visit but I wouldn't go out of your way. The bakeries are really good, especially one further down the end near the 7/11 (can't remember the name). Very large and has a massive selection of foods. Might...More

Downtown
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
