Baldwin Village

Baldwin Village is a small enclave just east of Chinatown lined with about three dozen restaurants, cafes and stores. OCAD students and AGO visitors flock here for the diverse (and often cheap) dining options including all you can eat sushi at Kuni Sushi Ya, great Vietnamese food at Hanoi Bistro or veggie eats at Vegetarian Haven. The front patio at John's Italian Caffe is a favourite spot to watch the day go by.

Coming soon in the Talk! forums.
