The community surrounding the University of Toronto is among the most diverse in the city.  This is where Bohemia and academe meet, with art houses, theatres, beatnik coffee shops, budget-wise stores and well-stocked bookstores peppering a dense kilometre of restaurants and bars. 

Anchored by Honest Ed's - the eclectic landmark discount store of the late philanthropist Ed Mirvish - the neighbourhood is also home to Koreatown.  Ever lively, this area reflects the liberal ambiance of university life, with kitsch meeting nerd-chic head-on.  The myriad restaurants and shops make the Annex and Koreatown ideal for dining, shopping, karaoke, or simple lounging around.
