Fans of classical music appreciate Toronto Music Garden, a picturesque urban green space and outdoor music venue inspired by Bach’s First Suite for Unaccompanied Cello. Curves and swirling pathways as well as graded seating typify the gardens' attractive architecture. Designed by landscape architect Julie Moir Messervy with help from internationally famed cellist Yo Yo Ma, the gardens host an array of concerts throughout the year; check the schedule ahead of arrival. Even if there are no events scheduled, take some time out for contemplation in these verdant settings.

  • The music is a charming path along Lake Ontario. In the summer there is mottled shade, cool lake breezes, lovely benches for sitting, and frequent musical performances. In the winter there are beautif...  more »
  • According to the description of the Town Hall, it is a garden designed by Yoyo Ma, a great cellist musician; It has a design inspired by one of his works; of course that this not appreciate it at first glance, however in conjunction with the view of the Bay from Lake Ontario is joint a place of incomparable beauty. I recommend to visit him at dawn to take stunning photos.

  • To anyone without a deep connection to the emotion of music, this might simply look like a somewhat pretty garden but nothing more. Having an appreciation for the piece it was inspired by will add a whole new dimension to its features. It will delight your soul.
  • Just tried this cafe last week for the first time while waiting for a tan appointment next door at Solace. The prices are kind of outrageous (so high?!), but the service from a guy named Felix made it 5 star.
  • It’s hard to find independently owned businesses that can match the quality of products and services offered by large corporations. Music Garden Cafe not only matches, but exceeds, any other cafe in the GTA. Staff are always friendly, welcoming you and ensuring all patrons are treated like family. Their drinks and food are consistent in their quality, continuously delivering refreshing and savoury nourishment. Forget Starbucks and Tim Hortons: if you find yourself on the harbour front, you would be missing out not to go to Music Garden Cafe.
  • Wonderful food, friendly service, and close to a beautiful park full of Monarch butterflies. Great Cafe.
  • A bit of a hidden gem. Very cozy and affordable prices. They make some wicked sandwiches (the pesto chicken is a highlight) which come with a great little lentil soup. A great place to spend a rainy afternoon.
