Toronto's ace card as a ciry is its diverse ethnic neighbourhoods. Greek Town is one and at one point the surrounding area was settled by immigrants from Greece. But they are moving and dispersing in the City as generations grow up. You will still find a Greek bank, a bakery or two, and plenty of Greek Restaraunts but fewer as... More

Nice quaint area. Authentic Greek food. Walked around, stopped off for lunch at Messini for gyros...cheap. The Greek fries were real good. The pork in my gyro was dry and hard. The feta cheese was real creamy. The olive spread they put on the table was awesome. The server only gave us a small plate (4 slices)of pita bread for... More

Close to downtown on the west side of the Don Valley, Grrektown has a variety of special events throughout the year. Best selection of Greek restaurants in the city. Interesting shops such as the Big Carrot Commons, Moss and Book City make it an interesting street to walk along

Having been to Greece a few times, I can honestly say there's a certain authenticity to some of the restaurants on the Danforth that bring you right back. The food & atmosphere is warming.

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.
