One of the oldest suburbs of downtown Toronto, Rosedale is one of the most picturesque and ideally-located areas in the city. Built among three ravines, parklands, and charming shops, it is the neighbourhood of choice for many prominent Torontonians.

If your ever taking a brisk fall walk around the Rosedale neighbourhood, consider checking out some of their favourite restaurants, boutiques and services.
