Roncesvalles Village

Roncesvalles Village still finds a way for authentic Polish butchers, bakeries and restaurants to thrive among a destination-worthy set of restaurants, boutiques and indie coffee houses. Mix in popular pubs like The Local, second-run flicks at the Revue Cinema and late night burgers and drinks at The Rude Boy and you've got yourself a neighbourhood that's no longer one of Toronto's best kept secrets.

Coming soon in the Talk! forums.
