Bloor West Village

Some may view Bloor West Village as a suburb - the final frontier before Etobicoke - but this vibrant neighbourhood is closer than you think. It's just west of High Park and easily accessible via the Jane and Runnymede subway stops. Like nearby Roncesvalles, Bloor West Village owes much of its original identity to businesses and residents with an Eastern European heritage. Astra is one of the original delis that remain, and has since been joined by hundreds of cafes, restaurants and shops dotting Bloor West from Kennedy to Jane.
