The developers did a beautiful job here. They took a bunch of Victorian industrial buildings from an old distillery site and managed to renovate/repurpose them into a comfortable, attractive shopping, food and entertainment area with just a great feel to it. It truly blends the...More

Nice area to spend an hour or two in, preferably in the afternoon or evening as it's a bit stale in the morning.

Really liked how they have set-up this district - so quaint and nice. Lovely small stores and restaurants. Nice to sit around and enjoy the ambiance. Worth the visit.

Most bars do a sampler of 4 small beers which is good way to try different beers. Pretty part of town with some quirky shopping available too.

We walked here from the St Lawrence Market while visiting Toronto, but we learned when we arrived, they do have parking. We enjoyed walking on the old streets, there are galleries, shops & restaurants to enjoy. An enjoyable few hours to spend.

Stop there for dinner but all the environment was really suggestive. Nice stores and coffee shops, lots of different people. Perfect for a walk. Heard that sometimes, like Christmas, they put up some markets. It’s a stop worth the wile.

This was an industrial district from the 19th century. Somehow it survived. Restaurants, cafés, commercial art galleries, shops and artist spaces. Lovely places to visit. If you are in Toronto before Christmas, you may well enjoy their Christmas market, but dress warmly for that time...More

It's a neat area to walk around. However the over crowding and over priced beer houses/pubs got to me. And forget the Christmas market if you don't want to feel like cattle in a corral! If you want to take a nice stroll through a...More

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
