Eat, Play and Love Mimico! What life in Mimico is like and why so many are drawn to it.




Set upon the shores of Lake Ontario in South Etobicoke, you will find this popular little Village of Mimico. It’s a vibrant spot that was once considered more affordable than the downtown core but has quickly become one of Etobicoke’s hot spots to live. On one side you have the newer condo alley and on the other you have the more traditional neighbourhood. Many young, well educated professionals are choosing Mimico to be their home.




Mimico has been under major gentrification for many years, and as a result offers much to do for the resident or visitor. It has a small-town vibe, yet is under 20 minutes from the City core. Spend an afternoon sailing at the Etobicoke Yacht Club, or walk the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail. Bring your own or rent SUP and kayaks and spend the day out on the water.  Seasonally, the Humber Bay Shores Farmers Market runs weekly and offers everything from local farm produce, eateries, honey, knives, meat to baked goods. It’s a fun day, it unites the community and supports local. Transportation getting in and out of the area include the highway, Mimico GO station, Lake Shore street car and buses.




There’s something for every taste here in Mimico. An old favourite of mine is sitting out on Eden Trattoria’s patio. It’s right on the foot path and directly facing the lake. Chiang Mai recently opened, being a second location for them. The restaurant offers a great atmosphere and authentic Thai cuisine.




Much of Mimico is now a wonderland of high-rise condos. Being so close and owning such a stunning piece of real estate has made ownership very popular here. Mimico to the west offers a traditional mature neighbourhood with family homes and tree lined streets.

While there’s no shortage of wonderful neighbourhoods in Etobicoke, Islington Village is one of the best. Are you ready to learn what it takes to live here?
