Once limited to bakeries and sports bars, Dovercourt is now clearly defined on the city’s excellent dining scene. And, well serviced by subway stations Landsdowne and Dufferin, the area is poised and ready for the influx. North of Bloor is a rich residential area, consisting primarily of single-family dwellings; a large number of former industrial buildings have also been converted into low- and medium-sized apartments and loft condominiums. Adding to the mix are the many shops along Bloor, which serve the ethnically diverse community—comprising Portuguese, Ethiopian, Chinese, Spanish, Italian, Cantonese, Greek, Mandarin, Vietnamese and French subsets.
