The Danforth

Toronto Apartments for rent Danforth

A funny thing happens on the Bloor Subway line when you get east of Castlefrank station: you enter "The Danforth". The genius of the Danforth is that one must go there to experience it. Have you ever gone to another area/town and noticed that they had every chain store and restaurant that your area had and as such you could've had the same shopping or eating experience in your own hood? Consisting of unique stores and restaurants, the Danforth does not have that problem.

Made world famous by blockbuster film "My Big Fat Greek Wedding", The Danforth is a very special area. Starting at Broadview Avenue a strolling pedestrian soon comes across two of the best places in the city to have a pint: "Allens's" a New York style bar with Toronto's best Patio (someone will have to explain how they got that massive tree back there) and the Dora Keogh, an authentic Irish bar.

You'll also find the Music Hall, an ancient cinema that provides residents and visitors with an old style movie theatre experience and Schilling's, a wonderful spot to have a bite of pastry. As you continue to move east, you'll come across The Carrot Common, which among other things is Canada's premier health food destination, where you'll find an organic juice bar, delicious foods, a great little dress store called "Erietta", and a BOOKCITY store that while full of new releases and magazines always has a great assortment of titles in its value priced remainder sections - always a smart place to pick up a coffee table book! No wonder Toronto renters scoop up apartments so quickly in this area!  Toronto Apartments Danforth?   Well,at this point the Danforth begins to become very food centric.
