A Greek ethnic neighbourhood with lots of restaurants & shops. One gets the flavor of Greece with Greek speakers & music. Restaurants with Greek food abounds in this 2-3 km stretch of Danforth. Vibrant & lively, clean streets.

If you love Greek food, then this is the area to visit. Located on the Danforth AVE (Not Danforth Road) in a 6-8 block area, it features Greek restaurants, nightlife, and stores. Limited on street parking and some offstreet parking. Take public transit and walk, peaceful, and safe area.

Walk Danforth Avenue from Broadview (a subway stop) to Pape Avenue (also a subway stop). Enjoy the Greek influence on this happy, multi restaurant neighbourhood in Toronto. Many great restaurants for authentic Greek cooking and Greek wines. Tables are close, food is good, music and friendly people (some cross table chat actually happens if you wish to participate). Waiters amuse... More

If you like a good crowd, particularly on week ends, then you need to go. We enjoyed it immensely. Lot's of Greek food to choose from, if you like it and know what to order. You cannot go wrong with barbecue anyway. Lots of shops and stores for souvenirs as well. So very touristic, but a fun place to go... More

Order Saganaki and get the Oppa treatment! all appetizers are amazing! even try the Saganaki with scallops and mushrooms, yummy! The Seafood Platter is my all time favourite!

It is not Greektown it has become basically just a trendy street to hang out. It has lost authenticity.

Danforth is touted as Greek Town. Many of the tstaurants are Greek and you can get some awesome Greek food here. In recent years the Greeks have moved north, leaving the way for a mixed crowd who want yo be close to the city. There are little shops to browse in and some nice places to eat. You will find...

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

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.
