Another quaint neighbourhood in Toronto is the Mount Pleasant area. It is the region between Davisville and Eglinton and is a residential neighbourhood in midtown Toronto that surrounds a vibrant stretch of restaurants, cafes and shops on Mount Pleasant Rd. south of Eglinton. The area has a high concentration of specialty stores selling everything from cupcakes, to chocolate to delicate French pastries. The street is charming and very relaxing for an afternoon stroll, even if you do not like shopping. If you like shopping there are many little shops to pick up some home decor items as well as stationery, books and gift ware. There are also a handful of antique stores and one in particular has some amazing antiquarian maps and prints. It is a great area to do Christmas shopping in as there is something there for everyone, making it pretty easy. This street is actually enjoyable to visit at any time of the year. There are also two independent cinemas here - The Regent and the Mt. Pleasant - which screen a mix of hard-to-find, foreign and popular films.

The Mount Pleasant strip isn’t exactly the next hot ’hood or the new Queen West or the developer district du jour. Unlike other shopping and dining districts, customers aren’t paying for the view, the rent or the trend—they’re paying for a slice of authenticity in an ever-gentrifying city. Mount Pleasant is also a neighbourhood that many come to bury their dead. Mount Pleasant cemetery is the final resting place of William Lyon Mackenzie King, Egerton Ryerson and George "Punch" Imlach and features miles of walking paths, fountains, statues and botanical gardens.

You'll find apartment buildings, condominiums and a variety of semi-detached & detached homes on the western part of the neighborhood. Brick semis and detached homes are also sprinkled throughout this neighborhood. As for the eastern part of Mount pleasant, Two-storey semis and detached 1920s brick homes, new mansions and a few townhouses can be found but it is those detached post-war houses with three to four bedrooms that dominate, as do neat gardens—a signal of solid upkeep.
