A walk through Roncesvalles Village – or “Roncy” to its friends – will capture your heart, and stomach, with its small-town European charm. The area is home to many family-owned cafes and shops and as you explore the different boutiques, you may find yourself drawn in by the irresistible aromas that waft out of the local bakeries.
Roncesvalles Village’s trove of foodie-approved casual restaurants, health food stores, and gourmet shops. “Roncey” is also known for its indie gift shops, fashion boutiques, and yoga studios.
Junction is another hit with smart, young Torontonians, but with an edgier, artier vibe, and replete with small galleries, vintage shops, and coffee bars. The heart of the neighbourhood is the sprawling, leafy High Park, home to a small zoo, an extensive trail network, adventure playgrounds, a leash-free dog park, and scenic pond.
