Restaurants, recreation & retail therapy
Adjacent to The Annex, Bloor-Yorkville is the go-to neighbourhood for high-end shopping, especially along Bloor Street’s Mink Mile, with its copious luxury shops and department stores as well as independent designer boutiques on Cumberland Street and Yorkville Avenue, just north of Bloor. The neighbourhood is also flush with trendy restaurants, galleries, more affordable retail options and its own little flower district at Ave & Dav (where Avenue Road and Davenport Road intersect).
