St. Clair West

St. Clair West is a catch-all neighbourhood we use to describe the area that runs along St. Clair West starting from Avenue Road to Westmount where Corso Italia begins. It encompasses micro hoods like Wychwood Park, Oakwood and Hillcrest as well as the recently renovated Wychwood Barns. The streets north and south of St. Clair are very residential but along St. Clair itself there are a myriad of worthy food destinations ranging from baked treats at Leah's to excellent BBQ at the Stockyards Smokehouse & Larder.
