    My favourite place to eat in Yorkville is Sushi Inn - it's always jam packed in there but the food is really good ... if you like sushi, that is. You should head down to the harbourfront and stroll along the lake and eat at one of the outdoor patios there, too. During the summer months, there's always a lot happening down there, live events, festivals, market stalls, etc. If you decide to stay in the Yorkville area, that's where you'll find the city's best high-end shopping (along Bloor Street). The Royal Ontario Museum will be right around the corner from you too, so you should see what exhibits they have. But if there's nothing too exciting, I'd definitely suggest staying outside (if the weather is good) and heading down to the lake.

    HI Melissa;

    Uptown lunch! Sounds delicious.

    Four Seasons Hotel Toronto is a luxurious and famous spot for lunch. Rebel House is great for burgers. For hyper-healthy fare, Fresh on Bloor is the place to eat in Toronto, and the celebrity spotting there is great too!

    For sight-seeing? Meh. Toronto is not really a sight-seeing city. Best to explore the Queen West neighbourhood. Best hipster watching in town.

    Start at Trinity Bellwoods Park and wander the shopping and cafes nearby. The blocks around the south end of the park have become a mini-Montreal, since several French-speaking businesses have sprung up there in recent years. Best croissants and macarones are at Nadege Patisserie.

    Do not leave the area without wandering through the park in search of the famous white squirrel!

    Can't tell when this was posted but lunch at Trattoria Nervosa in Yorkville is always lovely. What type of sightseeing do you like? There are way too many things to list!

    Pack a picnic lunch with some gourmet treats from Yorkville and visit Toronto Islands take the ferry across from Queen's Quay Terminal. There are some restaurants on the islands, but they are quite expensive. You can also rent bicycles there and ride around the islands or relax on the nude beach.
