Upper Beaches

The Upper Beaches has become the trendy way to refer to the neighbourhood also known as Kingston Road. The basic boundaries are from Woodbine to Victoria Park along Kingston Road although we also include the small retail cluster around Main and Gerrard. Definitely off the beaten path for most Torontonians, the area is primarily frequented by locals, East Danforth and Beach residents. There are a number of small shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants.

Coming soon in the Talk! forums.
