St. Lawrence is a neighbourhood steeped in history — going back to the 1800s — and served as the locale for the first government buildings and commercial centres in Toronto. With its location near Union Station, the Distillery District, and Yonge Street, residents have the luxury of branching out into several exciting neighbourhoods, all of which are within walking distance or just a short bus ride away.
Today, this neighbourhood is best known for the market that shares its name; housed in an arena, St. Lawrence Market is home to vendors for food, crafts, and antiques. While very popular with tourists, the market serves the neighbourhood well as a grocery store, as residents can get everything from fresh meat and produce to artisan pastries and sandwiches.
It cannot be overstated what an incredible location 205 Frederick St is — particularly for those who love coffee. From the front door at Rezen, it’s less than a 5 minute walk to The Black Canary Espresso Bar, Aroma Espresso Bar, Starbucks, NEO COFFEE BAR, Second Cup, and Tim Hortons; with coffee in hand, residents can traipse over to the Entertainment District for endless excitement.
For a dining out close to home — there’s Amaya Express for Indian, Nari Sushi for Japanese, ARDO Restaurant for Italian, Patrician Grill for any meal of the day in a cozy diner, Petit Dejeuner for comfort food, and many more. And after dinner, there are countless nearby pubs like Pacific Junction Hotel, Betty’s, Gabby’s, and an assortment of others.
205 Frederick St has a 99 Walk Score — it’s anyone’s guess as to what cost them a point — ideal for those who prefer to run errands on foot. Public transit riders have bus stops around the corner on Adelaide and Sherbourne, and Streetcars on King, allowing for quick connections to King Station for subway lines.
Drivers can scoot past the majority of city traffic by heading south on Jarvis for the Gardiner Expressway on-ramp.
