The Danforth at a glance

Less than 20 minutes east of downtown Toronto lies the Danforth. Also known as Greektown, the Danforth is situated in Toronto’s east end and feels like a world of its very own. Despite its close proximity to the city centre, you will think you’ve been transported when you get off the subway at Chester, Donlands, or Pape Station. First, let’s address the elephant in the room, which is that the Danforth is known for having the best Greek food that Toronto has to offer. This part of Toronto has been home to a concentrated Greek population since before World War II, however, the 1950s and 1960s led to a swell in European immigrants from Italy and Greece. By the 1980s, the Danforth was considered to be one of the largest Greektowns in all of North America. Today, the area is more diverse than it once was, though it still has a disproportionately high population of Greek residents compared to other Toronto neighbourhoods. Regardless, the neighbourhood’s Greektown legacy lives on. Just take a walk down Danforth Avenue between Chester Avenue and Pape Avenue, and you will see a plethora of Greek eateries. Beyond the neighbourhood’s connection to Greek culture, the Danforth boasts a prime location in Toronto’s east end. With direct access to the city via the Bloor-Danforth subway line, not to mention the multitude of bus and streetcar options nearby, you are well-connected no matter where you choose to live in the Danforth. Plus, the area is home to beautiful parks, like Monarch Park and East Lynn Park, as well as a variety of housing opportunities, from historic Victorian homes and bungalows to brand-new townhouses and apartment buildings. Residents will also be able to enjoy the many mom and pop shops, independent boutiques, and cafes that sit on Danforth Avenue, in addition to the many festivals that the neighbourhood holds each year, including Taste of the Danforth. Whether you’re a young professional, a young family, or a senior citizen, this vibrant Toronto community has much to offer.
