The generous dining space makes dinner parties and entertaining guests an absolute breeze.

And the stylish brass chandelier adds a nice touch.

The kitchen is Italian Scavolini inspired, with custom brick wall and ample island space for a breakfast bar.

The stylish master bedroom suite showcases the beautifully painted exposed brick walls and concrete ceilings.

By Michael Camber | Best of King West , Blog

Our pick for the best dry cleaner in King West is favorued for not only their ability to get our shirts and delicates spotlessly clean, but also for their A-1 top-notch customer service.

Sure, there are plenty of very capable dry cleaners in the area. Some honourable mentions include Mr Lees Dry Cleaning (725 King St W), Charlotte Dry Cleaning & Alterations (36 Charlotte St) and Sun King Cleaners (35 Bathurst St).

kingwestvillagecleaners-toronto-onWould you believe that our #1 pick will remember your name after only one visit? For those of you who know Wayne at King West Village Cleaners at 1000 King St W (at Shaw) – you know exactly what I am talking about. His customer service and friendliness are legendary in the area.

So much so that loyal customers who have since moved away from the neighbourhood STILL come back to Wayne. Sure, they do a good job of cleaning your clothes and taking care of needed alterations – but it’s their customer service that makes King West Village Cleaners our #1 pick.
