NEIGHBOURHOOD GUIDE
RONCESVALLES, TORONTO

Roncesvalles is one of the trendiest and friendliest neighbourhoods within Toronto. Like any big city, Toronto features neighbourhoods that are simply lines drawn on a map, and those that have a true sense of community within their borders. “Roncy” as the locals call it, is clearly one of the latter.

Roncesvalles is one of the many Toronto neighbourhoods with slightly informal boundaries. High Park and Landsdowne mark the West and East boundaries of the neighbourhood. Bloor Street, which is a divider of many neighbourhoods in the city, marks the north end of Roncesvalles, and Queen Street West marks the southern border. Roncesvalles is the home of much of Toronto’s thriving Polish population. There are a number of Polish businesses, restaurants, churches and more within the neighbourhood. Roncy is even home to Toronto’s annual Roncesvalles Polish Festival.

Roncesvalles is a quiet, largely residential neighbourhood. It feels very much like small town, because so much of the neighbourhood is quiet; with almost all the commercial action being centered around one main street. In Roncy, the prime business district is right along Roncesvalles Avenue, which runs the entire length of the neighbourhood. On Roncesvalles Avenue itself, the atmosphere is one of independence and a thriving local community. While there are a few name-brand businesses here and there, (no business street in Toronto would be complete without the ubiquitous Starbucks), the vast majority of businesses on the street are local shops, designers, restaurants and artisans.

The Polish influence in the neighbourhood is felt throughout. Many of the signs are marked in Polish and English, and businesses often have signs out that let customers know that they also offer service in Polish.
