Hardly a classic Greek neighborhood: A few Greek restaurants, one nice French bakery, one nice Greek bakery, and not much else that is Greek. If you want ethnic food, go to Little India in Toronto or nearby Little Ethiopia.

Right on Danforth there are lots of restaurant options, a variety of stores and a great market. Sidewalks are wide and easy to navigate. Worth a stroll on the afternoon prior to dinner.

Greek town party's all night long. The restaurants are open until 2 am. The food is great. Plenty of night life in local bars and clubs. The streets are full of party people.

of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets,
