This hodgepodge of a neighbourhood wears its quickly accreted layers very close to the surface. Gangs of grey-haired gentlemen congregate in the area’s Italian sports bars and red, white and green–clad cafes. But there are also a few Filipino grocers, Portuguese churrasqueiras and eateries serving jerk chicken along the main commercial strip. Stretching beyond the borders of the neighbourhood, Eglinton West between Allen Road and Keele has been dubbed “Little Jamaica” for its high concentration of Caribbean take-out spots and barbershops. With Eglinton in a state of commercial flux, and the Storewide Sale banners competing for attention with For Lease signs, this is definitely a community in transition.
