Roncesvalles Village Shopping and Dining (Self Guided), Toronto

To visit Roncesvalles Village is to surround yourself with European charm and ambience in an area that is also known as Little Poland. The nickname is due to the number of enchanting Polish restaurants, delis, bakeries and stores specializing in Polish goods, such as books and records.

Start your day with a freshly baked pastry and try some Polish breads as well. One of the most exciting things to do here is to shop in the delis and butchers for their European fare. Buy traditional soups, sausages and cabbage rolls. For more food options, shop in Little Poland’s markets and grocery stores. As you make your way around the neighborhood, enjoy the genuine warmth of the small-town atmosphere. Enjoy lunch and dinner in a Polish restaurant or in some of the other international eateries you will find here.

Roncesvalles Village is an excellent shopping destination. There are antique stores, clothing and shoe shops, bookstores, hobby shops, vintage stores and stores where you can buy curiosities and collectibles. If you are in the neighborhood during September, immerse yourself in all things Polish at the annual Little Poland festival. There are dances, costumes, games, activities for the children and plenty of food to try.
