Culture & Lifestyle
Even if it’s no longer the largest Greek community in North America, the Danforth retains its Cyrillic street signs and popular souvlaki restaurants. On warm days you can sit by the fountain at Alexander the Great Parkette and enjoy some authentic loukoumades. Parks, playgrounds and street fairs abound, with the Taste of the Danforth food festival drawing huge crowds before the pandemic. The eastern end at Danforth Village, also known as East Danforth, is home to a sizable Muslim community and one of the largest mosques in the city.
