About The Neighbourhood

Humewood has been a popular spot among first-time homebuyers and young families for several years. And now, with so many of the 80+ year-old homes undergoing renovations, it’s becoming increasingly attractive to step-up buyers wanting to live close to downtown and public transit. It’s also still home to a mix of older Italian and Portuguese multigenerational families, particularly between St. Clair Avenue West and Vaughan Road.

This community has undergone quite the transformation over the past ten years. It shares many of its amenities with Wychwood, its neighbour to the south, and has become quite vibrant as a result. Take a wander along St. Clair Avenue West and you’ll find that a number of independent coffee shops and trendy restaurants have opened up to the delight of those seeking a great latte, eclectic food options, or a fun night out at a gastropub close to home.

Besides locals, these establishments attract clientele from nearby Forest Hill and Deer Park and even as far south as the Annex. Many make a point of accommodating the needs of children. The neighbourhood has also seen a rise in the number of family-oriented services, such as daycare centres and medical and dental clinics.

For fun, there are several parks and recreational facilities in the neighbourhood, including community centres, libraries, a skating arena and Humewood Park, which is a summertime favourite for families with kids. Cedarvale Park, just north of Humewood, is a popular spot for dog walkers, thanks to its enclosed dog park, and toboganners, thanks to a steep hill on the northern edge of this large ravine.

And then, there’s Artscape Wychwood Barns. This cultural go-to spot for both Wychwood and Humewood residents encompasses live-in workspace for artists, art programs for kids, a community-run gallery, seasonal festivals, a weekend farmers market, a greenhouse, and administrative facilities for non-profit organizations – plus park facilities and an off-leash area for four-legged family members.

Coffee In The Hood

Krave Coffee


What are you ‘Kraving’ this week? For those who know me well, my diet doesn’t consist of too much dairy, but from time to time I do like to indulge and enjoy an awesome latte. And that’s just how I decided to start out my week at Krave Coffee on St. Clair Avenue West. Krave has become one of the go-to indie coffee shops for residents living in the Humewood, Wychwood and Oakwood Village neighbourhoods in midtown Toronto. It is housed in a historic building that features large arched windows that allow the light to flood in. This is a great feature, and likely one of the reasons why so many young professionals flock here with their Macs in tow to bang out some work at 8:30AM on a Monday morning. Weekends at Krave attract many young families to the shop for a morning muffin, scone or big cookie (in the jars) and of course, a coffee fix for parents looking to get a pick-me-up This summer, the Krave Coffee owners will be opening their juice shop right next door and true to its roots, it will be called Krave Juice. Their patio will surely be buzzing having both Krave Coffee and Krave Juice attracting locals that wish to soak up the sun or do some work while sipping a tasty summer drink. If you haven’t had the chance to indulge in a Krave latte, I suggest popping in if you live in the hood. If you are passing through St Clair West, parking is super easy as Krave is lucky to have a Green P parking lot right next door. It is abundantly clear that the locals crave what the owners of Krave have to offer. It will surely continue to be one of my regular spots. See you soon @Kravecoffee. -torontoyourway Krave Coffee - 781 St Clair Avenue West
