The Danforth, Toronto's Greektown, juggles east-enders' enviro-chic, vegan-friendly sensibilities with the city's biggest celebration of meat on a skewer; otherwise know as the Taste of the Danforth. Carrot Common is the central meeting point here and home to the ever-popular The Big Carrot. But venturing east and west along the main drag yields some great finds like the restored Danforth Music Hall, shopping at Lustre and Bullet and great eats at Globe, 7 Numbers and Athens Pastries.

Coming soon in the Talk! forums.
