346 Davenport: Summerhill Spotlight
It's no secret that 346 Davenport lies in an extremely enviable location. At the intersection of Summerhill, Yorkville, Rosedale, and The Annex, there simply is no better place to live. We turn our spotlight to the beautiful Summerhill neighbourhood and show off some of the more note-worthy spots in the area.
Centered on Yonge St, Summerhill is one of Toronto's oldest and most desirable neighbourhoods. Characterized by its turn of the century homes, tree-lined streets, and the iconic old North Toronto train station (now LCBO), its proximity to 346 Davenport is second to none! Within minutes you could be shopping at one of many boutiques, enjoying a coffee or cocktail at some of the finest independent establishments, or simply strolling through one of the many parks the area has to offer.
With a name stemming from the iconic train station across the street, Boxcar Social is a hip Summerhill café by day. A carefully curated rotating list of beans provides their patrons a chance to sip on some of the world's finest roasts. After the sun goes down, they swap out the coffee for wine, craft beer, bourbon, and scotch. Sit and saviour your favourite libation while being entertained by their passionate staff and settle in to the warm, welcoming atmosphere.

The Black Camel
First opening its doors in 2004, The Black Camel is home to some of the best sandwiches in the city! Pulled pork, beef brisket, seared steak, pulled chicken, and even a vegetarian option are made with fresh ingredients daily. These delicious sammies are extremely popular, so much so that they often sell out before their scheduled closing time. To avoid the immense disappointment of the "SOLD OUT" sign, be sure to check their Twitter feed (@black_camel) as they keep it updated when they are running low on ingredients.
