Why Go To Toronto's The Junction Neighborhood


Toronto has plenty of neighbourhoods that offer plenty of things to do, places to eat and drink and explore. One of them is The Junction and in my opinion, this area in the west end doesn’t get the attention is deserves.

Not yet, anyway.

Ask the average Torontonian where The Junction is and they may look at you weird. But for those who know about it (outside of the locals…who love it), they hit up the joints often.

It’s got a pile of cafes, a few restaurants, some great bars and a seemingly endless amount of antique stores.

As opposed to giving you a Top Whatever reasons to visit The Junction list, I thought to illustrate the area with photos. My perspective of a very unique, historical, quaint and continuously evolving area of Toronto.


Here’s where The Junction is. Visit, enjoy and tell us what you think of the neighbourhood. Happy travels!

Jim Bamboulis has held several posts over the past 12 years, including National Sportscaster, Food Host and Writer, Talk Show Host, Olympic Researcher and Travel Film-maker.

Born and raised in Toronto, Jim learned early on that the combination of travel and food meant ultimate living. Combining his insatiable creative spirit and desire to document his travels, Jim took his unshakable travel bug and set off to explore. Add the fact that Jim also grew up in a Greek household and he learned that not only does Mom always make the best meals, but as importantly learned the importance of understanding and appreciating the countless beautiful cultures and the integral role food plays in every corner of the World.

In August 2009, Jim founded Travel Mammal, a site that brings together his travels and experiences (both good and terrifying) with the hope that others are inspired to share their own. We are all storytellers, especially when it comes to travel and food. He urges everyone to be inspired, explore and love the world and the people that share it with us. Or in other words, Live to Travel and travel to live!
