Tel: 416 922 2333's insider take:

The city's most expensive shopping district is a former hippie enclave where Neil Young got his start back in the late '60s. Like so many of that generation (excluding Mr. Young), Yorkville went seriously up-market in the 1980s. Today it's the place to find high-end brands like Prada, Hermès, and Louis Vuitton. The priciest hotels in the city can also be found here, along with Pilates studios, smoothie shops, and hair salons (try Lid Inc. if you need a new 'do). Be sure to check out Holt Renfrew, Canada's answer to Saks Fifth Avenue, with everything from Canadian designers like Dsquared² and Pink Tartan to European heavy favorites such as Canali, Diesel, and Dior. Need a quick bite? Head to the Montreal Bread Company—Canada's welcome answer to Subway—for the roast beef with caramelized onions.
