Greektown

Greektown
Also known as the Danforth or Greektown on the Danforth, the neighborhood of Greektown is a little slice of the Mediterranean in Toronto. A settlement for Greek immigrants in the 20th century, Greektown continues to wear its cultural heritage on its sleeve. Despite recent gentrification, it is still dotted with tavernas serving up souvlaki, gyros, and other Greek culinary delights. 

The Basics
Many visitors to Toronto explore Greektown independently. A good place to begin is the main thoroughfare of Danforth Avenue, where you’ll see Greek flags flying and street signs in both English and Greek. Browse the stores along the avenue, and be sure to come with an empty stomach so you can sample Greek pastries from local bakeries and other typical Greek foods. The neighborhood is sometimes included in walking tours and food tours of Toronto. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Greektown is a must for foodies.
  • Arrive hungry: No visit to Greektown is complete without sampling some of the neighborhood’s edible offerings.
  • There’s little shade on the Danforth in summer, so bring sunscreen and a hat for protection.

How to Get There
Greektown can be easily accessed by subway. Ride the Bloor-Danforth subway line to Broadview, Chester, Pape, or Donland, all of which are just steps away from Danforth Avenue.

When to Get There 
Greektown is a vibrant area that’s busy year-round. It is most atmospheric in summer, when its patios make excellent people-watching perches. To see it at its quietest, go midmorning on a weekday. The best—and also the busiest—time of the year to visit is during the annual Taste of the Danforth food festival, which takes place mid-August.

Taste of the Danforth Food Festival
For Torontonians, Greektown is synonymous with the annual Taste of the Danforth food festival.  Taking place over several days in mid-August, it is one of Canada’s best-known food festivals, with hundreds of vendors dishing out not just Greek food, but all kinds of ethnic fare. Greek bands and dance troupes provide entertainment for festivalgoers.
