“Too much construction”
Review of Yorkville Village

Yorkville Village
Ranked #49 of 545 things to do in Toronto
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 October 2017

Familiar with this area from when I lived in Toronto years ago. Like much of Toronto it seems to have a lot of construction and just seems much busier and a dirtier than it used to. It does have some nice shopping and good restaurants and for someone new to the area it is worth a visit. However, seemed to be obstacles a lot of places and just so much more congested. Didn't enjoy as much as I thought I would based on previous experiences.

A Rodeo Drive kind of district, we enjoyed walking about and staring at things we would never buy. Some very nice dining establishments. Cibo wine bar was excellent for lunch.

Very upmarket shopping area with lots of designed shops. Nice to wander along even if just window shopping. Easy to get to on public transport if visiting the city.

I spent a lot of time in Yorkville in the 60s (and remember most of it). Experiencing the coffee houses, folk music and development of the Toronto Rock sound made my time there a highlight of my young life. Sadly nothing is left of the old landmarks except for some recent plaques put up by the city. I was my own guide so was able to revisit the sites of many famous venues, like the Village Corner, Websters, The Purple Onion, The Riverboat and the Penny Farthing. The streetscape is all different now with high rise buildings and upscale shops where the old Victorian houses used to be. I would suggest you read Nicholas Jennings Book "Before the Gold Rush" or hook up with a tour guide if you want to connect with the history of the 60s.
