Description and Lifestyle:
Summerhill is a vibrant, dynamic and fun neighbourhood. It has a mixture of young, established professionals, families with growing children and retired empty nesters. People choose to reside in the area for easy access to public transportation, proximity to fine shops and a park, where one can take leisurely strolls anytime of the day.
It is a neighbourhood where one can walk to Café Doria, Patachouche or even Starbucks to meet friends over a morning latte and croissant. One can also have lunch and dinner at the various restaurants of differing cuisine. Pastis for the French flare; Avant-Gout for the Moroccan spice and casual pizza and pasta at Capocaccia or Terrone.
For the young professionals, their favorite meeting place is both Le Petite Castor and Rebel House, where they unwind after work and meet friends. For the gourmet cooks, the Stores at Summerhill offer the finest meat at Oliffe; fresh seafood at Pisces; rare herbs and vegetables at Harvest Wagon and the cheeses at All The Best. Then, of course, there is the flagship store of LCBO in the finely refurbished train station, where they offer the best choices of wine.
Last but not least, for the active residents, the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club offers amenities for all members of the family. It is an oasis in the centre of the city. There are also Yoga Studios nestled here and there. Summerhill is an area that has come of age.
