The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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 vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.

Whenever we have friends from out of town visit, Queens Quay is one place wr bring them to. It's got attractive shops to meander around, good waterfront restaurants for lunch or snacks and there's the nearby ferries to Centre Island. There are also harbour cruises if you're so inclined. Have been on a dinner harbour cruise with friends and it was a leisurely few hours on Lake Ontario - a real treat!

It was a rainy day in September but the show must go on. So we trecked down to the Queen’s Quay and had a wonderful lunch experience at the Pink Pearl. Very elegant place to dine, overlooking the water, with lovely Decour and elegance galore.

Prices are a little bit much but the food is delicious bite after bite consistently.

If you are planning to drop by, the fried eggplant is an absolute do not miss.

We come to Toronto twice a year and have seen Queen's Quay in every season, this time we were knee deep in snow the most snow I have ever seen here but there was still plenty to look at. The Lake was just about frozen over and everywhere was a winter wonderland. It was too cold to stand and loiter but got hot coffee in the centre and had a wander about. The Chinese Restaurant in here is amazing, delicious food. Good supermarket.

Yes it can be very crowded and yes it can be very touristy but there's always something going on. There are bars and restaurants, live music, food festivals, buskers and just plain people watching. We often ride our bikes there just to see what's happening. Oh and free toilets and drinking fountains.

"As a child and young teenager, I remember the Queens Quay terminal as being a bustling hub of activity with a bunch of eclectic stores and food stalls and restaurants that had the feel of an open air market." - Old Eye

I thought I was going mad when I visited the Queens Quay terminal today. Where were the crafty shops and the unique food stalls? In my wee brain memory (from a decade ago), I envisioned a some cool shops, a fresh market and a great bakery. When I arrived it was a few restaurants basically supported by the lunching business people in the area and nothing else. Really disappointing and it didn't help that everything of interest to visit: the art gallery, the open studios... are closed on Mondays. Sigh.

As a child and young teenager, I remember the Queens Quay terminal as being a bustling hub of activity with a bunch of eclectic stores and food stalls and restaurants that had the feel of an open air market. What a disappointment when I returned the Monday at the beginning of the March Break with my family in tow to find nothing. We were staying at the nearby delta hotel and figured we would make the short walk down to harbourfront and walk around and explore, only to find a ghost town and a building now filled with offices. I'm not sure when this place underwent such a dramatic makeover, but it is certainly not the Queens Quay of my youth. Based on the cost of a regular men's haircut at the barbershop located in side ($36), rent in this place must be a fortune and it's no wonder all those stores have migrated out. I definitely won't be back any time soon.
