My kids lived here for a while so I spent tons of time pushing a stroller along this stretch. Really interesting walk. Loads of great restaurants and Carrot Common is an interesting little square with cute shops and health food spots.

You do not have to love Greek food to visit here. We do because we love the food, atmosphere and shopping. We like to visit on nice days and stroll the shops - have a nice Greek lunch and hit the bakery before we go...More

The Danforth was my stomping grounds for years. The aroma of the foods, the sights of the culture and the TASTE! Anyone looking for Greek cuisine or culture has to visit.

Love the night life,and the Authentic Greek food all across the Danforth. Our favourite dining experience is the Pan. George and his family "do it right". The belly dancing on special evening is a real treat. Food is phenomenal. Anywhere you stop you'll enjoy.

There are lots of Greek restaurants locating along the Danforth Ave. No need to bring a car as parking is very limited. Taking the subway and get off any station between Pape and Main. Greektown is very busy and vibrant during the weekends. One can...More

If you like Greek food, this is the place for it. However, we find it's very touristy and not too authentic, more Canadian style Greek. It's a very busy and popular place so hard to park. It's nice to walk around in the summer, but...More
