The Lowdown on Greenwood Coxwell

Your Typical Neighbour

This neighbourhood is an eclectic mix of long-standing residents and newbies, with lots of economic and cultural diversity. Known as “the more affordable” pocket east of the Don and west of the Beach, you’ll find young families moving into starter homes alongside more established professionals who are snapping up fully renovated houses for slightly less than they’d pay in the ‘hood on either side of this area. 

What We

It’s all here. Greenwood-Coxwell offers everything you love about the trendiest neighbourhoods in town, without the pomp and circumstance. Slip in for incredible food from favourites like Mahas, The Wren and Lake Inez, Glory Hole Donuts and Lazy Daisy. Take in the fabulous colour of the India Bizzar. And plan a craft brewery crawl without an Uber, with Left Field, Godspeed and Rorcharch all within a short walk and visit boutiques like Pantry Cheese and Sannigans for gourmet groceries, then pop into BJs Supermarket for the best samosas in town. 

What We Don't

The area is somewhat lacking in a few essentials, like a drug store or flower shop on the Gerrard St. shopping block, and if you’re looking for big chain food or coffee, you might need to travel up to the Danforth if you live in the blocks south of the tracks (not a huge trek). And if you’re looking for a club-style nightlife, you’ll need to travel west.

This neighbourhood has a little bit of everything. From smaller row houses in the south end close to Queen to semi-detached and detached homes prime for renovation, to fully-renovated stunners. You’ll also find opportunities to tear down and start from scratch, and new build homes from owners or builders who have already been through the process. There are some new-build projects, including townhouses that are nearly complete at Dundas and Coxwell, and more townhouses along the Danforth. There are also some apartments and geared-to income homes just south of the tracks near Greenwood. There are very few condos in this neighbourhood, although there are some new projects in development along Queen Street.

About Greenwood Coxwell

Travel to the far east side of Leslieville along Queen, Dundas or Gerrard, along the Danforth, past the heart of Greektown, and you’ll find yourself in the area known as Greenwood-Coxwell. Here, you can visit Bricktown and India Bizaar, Monarch Park, and parts of the Danforth and Leslieville… all within its boundaries. Outsiders might see it as an area with an identity crisis, but those who live here see themselves in a neighbourhood that is filled with a diverse, welcoming community. 

This area is not as well known as some East End ‘hoods, but the last 5 or so years it has seen a shift from the place people stop on their way to somewhere else, to a destination for food, beer, art, shopping and more. Affordable commercial rent has drawn fresh new businesses to the area and has given established west end favourites the perfect spot to open on the east side – Hello Glory Hole Donuts! 

Green space abounds with the massive Greenwood park sitting just outside the boundaries, Monarch Park north of the tracks between Gerrard and Danforth and Jonathon Ashbridge’s just North of the Lakeshore. Here, you’ll find splash pads, pools, tennis courts, baseball diamonds, and lots of room to run. There are also a number of smaller community playgrounds, schoolyards and dog parks making the area perfect for those starting a family or moving to the area with children. 

At night, people gather at local breweries, restaurants like Lake Inez, Bodega Henriette and the Wren, cocktail bars like The Shore Leave and local favourites like Eulalie’s Corner Store, Queen Margherita Pizza and Sarahs. Here, you’ll also find the best Indian and Ethiopian food in the city. And for lunch, you can’t beat Lazy Dazy Cafe and Maha’s (if you can get a table – be prepared to line up). 

On a typical weekday, you’ll see the cafe’s chocked full of people with their laptops. This area has a large number of professionals, creative people and entrepreneurs that work from home, or wherever they can find power and wi-fi. A number of farmer’s markets take place throughout the week and on weekends. And in the summer, there are countless family-friendly outdoor events and festivals, along with art markets and craft beer events.
