The Distillery Historic District

The Distillery District, with its cobblestoned streets and Victorian-era commercial buildings, brings a little old-time romance to Toronto. After industry moved out, the area became run-down; but the extraordinary heritage architecture caught the attention of historians and developers. First, it was declared a national historic site; then the 47 buildings that made up the Gooderham & Worts Distillery were carefully restored. The resulting neighborhood possesses European allure, with a clutch of trendy boutiques, bakeries, and restaurants, along with spaces for artists and artisans. Come winter, the district hosts a holiday market, spilling over with holiday cheer.

A beautiful part of the city filled with restaurants, stores and art gallery. The Corkin gallery and SOMA chocolatier are 2 of the most memorable spots. http://willtravelforfood.com/2011/09/29/toronto-restaurants/
