Yorkville

Yorkville, Toronto's original bohemian enclave in the 1960's, has long given way to designer boutiques, high end hotels, restaurants to see and be scene and a seemingly never-ending parade of Mazzeratis and Ferraris dotting Cumberland and Yorkville Avenues. International fashion fiends will find all the major labels here including Prada, Gucci, Boss, Escada, Chanel, Hermes, Louis Vuitton and more. The famed and rebuilt Sazzafraz and Yorkville Park make prime people watching spots, the latter featuring a 650-tonne rock carved out of the Canadian Shield. Don't miss crepes at the ever-popular Crepes a Go Go, an indie or foreign film at the Cumberland or vegetarian Italian food at Mela.
