Filled with great restaurants, desserts, lights, music, churches. We went there during winter so we couldn't walk around much but had an awesome dinner and saw some beautiful buildings.

Great way to spend an afternoon. Walking back and forth along the street. Enjoying great greek food. Sit and have a beer and watch the people. The greek festival is the best and is held every year the second weekend of August

One of the most popular neighbourhoods in Toronto, you will be delighted with the assortment of authentic Greek cuisine available within a short half mile. Some old school, some more trendy, but tasty nonetheless. A definite stop for tourists. Easy access from the subway. Parking...More
