Personally, I have found the Toronto games stores to be overpriced. (Admittedly, I've only gone to 3 or 4). If you can somehow get to Waterloo (1 hour west of Toronto) there is a great store there called J&J's. Geekmail me if you want any directions on how to get there.

There's an excellent board game store in the basement of the Royal York Hotel in downtown Toronto. The prices are somewhat high, but it has a great selection.

If you're looking for play space, you'll have to look elsewhere, it's more of a traditional store.

Somewhat in between Downtown Toronto and Waterloo is the Comic Warehouse in Brampton:

I used to buy quite a considerable amount there when I lived in the area

Paul and Abby at Fun Games Cafe could likely help you out: http://www.fungamescafe.com/fgcIndex.php?com=aboutus
FGC is a OLGS, but I believe pickup or delivery to your house or hotel is very possible (Mississauga is part of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA)).

My preferred FLGS in Toronto is 401 Games on Yonge Street. They have a not bad selection and reasonable prices. Hairy Tarantula has a better selection but much worse prices. And the shop mentioned above in the Royal York has a good selection, but the most ridiculously overpriced games I've ever come across.....

I went there for the first time ever and was very impressed with everything the store had to offer. Easily the most impressive boardgame, RPG, comic, and collectable store I've ever been in.

/Edit: I also like Hairy Tarantula, 401 Games, GameTrek, Game and Hobby Zone, and Two-headed Dragon (all Toronto FLGSs), but this store is more impressive than all in person. Sorry.. other game stores.

You'll likely save enough in the game prices to make up for the shipping cost from germangames.com or jjcards.com as compared to a store right in Toronto.

Enjoy your time in Toronto! Coincidentally, in May I will spend a week in Czech Republic. You can buy all of Vlaada Chvátil's games there for very cheap, right?
