About the neighbourhood:

Bloor West
Bloor West

In the 1850's, the area now known as BLOOR WEST VILLAGE was the property of Lieutenant Colonel William Smith Durie, the first commanding officer of the Queens Own Rifles. The street that ran through his estate is now known as Durie Street.

The present day neighbourhood began to be developed in 1909 when this district became part of the City of Toronto. Bloor West's first residents were immigrants of Eastern European background. These are the residents who helped found the Bloor West Village Business Improvement Area, the first of its kind in Canada. This shopping district has helped make Bloor West Village one of Toronto's most popular neighbourhoods - family friendly and home to such highly regarded public schools as:

Grade JK - 8

Grade 9-12

As well as a host of acclaimed separate and private schools.

The Bloor West Village shopping district, which attracts shoppers from all over the city, is as much about eating as it is about shopping. It's a virtual smorgasbord of bakeries, delicatessens, specialty food shops, cafes and restaurants that grows so lively on Saturdays that it feels like there's always a festival going on! Convenience stores, fruit and vegetable markets, dry cleaners, video stores, and other shops catering to everyday household needs, can also be found on Jane and Annette Streets. An annual street festival in August lets the many family-owned businesses display their wares in tents and under awnings.

    1. A new and so very welcome cafe has arrived to the slightly sleepy Jane/Annette/Baby Point area. Outhouse Cafe at 393 Jane Street serves more than just coffee (which is amazing by the way). Delicious homemade pizza, pasta, panini, salads and amazing baked goods are all made from local ingredients. The work of a local artist adorns the walls, service is super friendly and fun. For the moment it’s just open until 6pm during the week but charming owner William hopes to extend the hours. A recent special dinner event was a sold out success and there are plans for more.
