We took our breakfast in one of the ubiquitous Tim Horton's coffee shops opposite the centre then wandered across and in to browse the outside of the shops in anticipation of their 10am opening. Sad. It's actually quite pleasant as malls go - open plan, light airy with shops on four or five split levels. All the usual suspects here, I won't list them, and a good size Borders book shop. There's a pretty good food hall on the ground level at the far end too, lined with kiosks serving more-or-less any type of fast food you can think of - Chinese, Japanese, Korean, pizza/pasta, fish & chips, poutine, and more. You can get a great midday feed here for C$7 or less.
The centre is easy to find too--very central and easy to walk to from whichever district you happen to be staying in. The interesting brownstone Old City Hall stands right next to it.
Here's the website with all the details, floor plan, and whatever. Knock yourself out.

With your everyday Gap to a large H&M, you could very well spend the day there. For U.S. Residents, don't spend your money at the stores we have (Gap, Old Navy, American Eagle, etc.) because it'll be more expensive after the U.S. dollar conversion. Check out stores, such as: Aritzia (for teens to 30 year-olds), Jacob Connexion (store for all females), Le Chateau (VERY trendy store for both genders), H&M (largest location at this mall), Roots (a favorite) and several others. These stores are directed more towards the younger "heart" of those in the teens to younger adults (30s). However, they do have Talbots and a VERY nice Sears. The Sears in Canada is on a different caliber as those in the US. The Canadian sells high-end brands such as, Tommy Bahama and Kenneth Cole.
With the selection of clothing, Canadian style does not differ that much from most American style. They enjoy the casual look of Gap to the more sophiscated of Chanel.
This mall has two separate food courts. They are both located on the lower level, however are not relatively near one another. One of the food courts contain McDonalds and some other unknown chains. The other food court is cleaner and has a better selection (Quiznos, Arbys, etc.). Also the 2nd food court is brighter and not as loud as the former. For currency exchange, there is one on the 2nd level by Sears. They have a one-time charge for all currency exchange. I forgot the name but definitely check out that one place. If you feel the need to stay inside an air-conditioned location that is constantly busy, this mall is for you.

It is a very nice shopping centre with large glass roof giving a sense of space and light. There are many small, quaint shops selling authentic Canadian stuff along with the greatest number of luggage and bag shops I have seen in one centre. There is a large tourist centre shop within the center, which we found very useful for leaflets on local attractions etc. There eating areas featuring a number of eateries and seating areas, including New York Fries, KFC, Chinese, etc. There are also other independent restaurants within the centre.
Whilst we were there we never encountered huge crowds, although I’m sure that is not the case at times like Christmas. The Eaton is one of the better shopping centres I have been in and is a must see if you are in Toronto.
I almost forgot! I saw Aerosmith’s Steve Tyler in the Eaton too. I took a picture (below) with my camera phone, so it is not too clear. He is incredibly skinny and very short!

You name it and I think they've got it. Name brands you would recognize here in the states like The Gap, American Eagle, Eddie Bauer and others I was not familiar with but that had quality merchandise like Roots Athletics.
You can check out the Eaton Centre online at www.torontoeatoncentre.com Here you can get a list of the stores, a map of the centre and the Centre hours. At the time I visited, there was a coupon you could print out where certain stores offered discounts.
If you like to shop, this is the place to be. Just be sure to allow time!
