Stayed in area, nice to walk around and very safe. Lots of upmarket stores but still lots of other places and things to do. Sorry that Remus is closed as it was a staple.

I love walking around Yorkville and looking around. It's pretty much the place to see and be seen, and maybe spend a few hundred bucks. Shopping wise most of the stores don't really interest me, the best thing to do in Yorkville is to window shop and people watch. The restaurants in Yorkville can be very good, although much like...

Yorkville is a very clean cut, elegant, upperscale area to spend your morning coffee time or lunch at. Nicely set restaurants and cafes privately owned or within luxury hotels with excellent service and value for money bills. A neighborhood we visited more than once and were very satisfied.

Yorkville lives up to its "ville" title. It does fell like a little village, with alleys and pathways sprinkled with places to eat, shop, and peruse. The shops, and the cars, will hint at the financial success of the area, but don't be put off. The architecture is fun, the shops aren't that expensive, nor is the food. There is... More

The shops in Yorkville are very upscale and luxurious, and as such, a lot of the clientele and sales associates have a very snooty attitude when it comes to people just browsing or walking past the stores. We decided to tour the neighbourhood on the recommendation of our hotel's concierge, but were largely unimpressed. Unless you're wealthy, you'll feel quite... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
