5 Delicious Reasons to Visit the Junction

Toronto’s Junction neighbourhood is named after the area where four railway lines meet and is located in the city’s west end. It’s a relatively small neighbourhood with some fantastic furniture shops to get lost in, and amazing restaurants to eat at until you’re uncomfortably full. The main intersection of the Junction is Dundas St.West and Keele; it’s also just north of the beautiful High Park so you may want to plan a day out of it! If traveling by TTC transit, catch the 40 Junction bus from the accessible Dundas West subway station.

To help with your Junction adventure, here is our pick of the best accessible restaurants in the neighbourhood:
