We came to Little India to do some food shopping and visit an Indian restaurant, preferably something less aimed at tourists. The area did not feel too vibrant. We visited several stores, browsed at several restaurants and takeaways and did eat in a nice restaurant....More

Starting around Greenwood on Gerrard Street East,, inbetween Riverdale, Leslieville and the Beach, lies a stretch of Indian restaurants, and lovely little shops, blazing in colourful fabrics and fragrant spices. There is a street festival here every summer, but at any time of the year,...More

Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is
one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's

clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the
funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to
stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and
vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca
for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers,
