Lots of unique stores and good restaurants. If not the most, one of the more expensive areas in TO. Some good restaurants however the location results in higher prices. Many well-heeled people frequent the area. One downside is some of the people you meet are showy, pay too much attention to brands and too interested in status/wealth.

Nice area. Lovely walks through university grounds. Try it, some cool buildings. Lots of high end shops if you like that sort of thing but character comes from the buildings along the street and churches dotted around.

This is what Yorkville is for. Showing your fancy cars and spending money on designer clothes. Style for sale. Sorry, as a Toronto born citizen, Yorkville is a loss from the coolest to the least cool. There are some good restaurants and ice cream though.

Lot's of high end boutiques, stores, restaurants etc where you can drop a load $$$. There are some more reasonably priced establishments as well. The Nespresso cafe is a place to grab a nice Espresso or Latte and a danish. Hemingways rooftop patio is a great place for brunch in the warmer months.

Great to stroll the streets and window shop, some of the nicest shops in Toronto. Known as the Fifth Avenue of Toronto.

This was perhaps our favorite area we visited while in Toronto. It is definitely an upscale, but not "snooty", part of town. The area is full of fun shops and art galleries (the best art gallery options in Toronto, especially featuring Canadian artists), as well as bars and restaurants. We loved simply walking around the area. Put this area on... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
