King East

King East is famous for its high end, designer furniture stores, community college (the city's top culinary institute) and burgeoning restaurant scene. Line up for brunch at waffle-specialists Le Petit Dejeuner or settle in for some post-theatre nosh at Kultura, Veritas or the student friendly Betty's. Only blocks away are the famous St. Lawrence Market, swing dancing at the Reservoir Lounge on Wellington or the molecular gastronomy foreplay at Lucien or Colborne Lane.

Coming soon in the Talk! forums.
