A dreamy French-in­spired ice cream par­lour and more new shops we love.

La Glace

Pas­try chef Mark Tag­u­lao scooped up his deca­dent French-method ice creams and sor­bets for years at var­i­ous pop-ups and events be­fore de­but­ing his bricks-and­mor­tar par­lour this sum­mer. The Parisian-in­spired space is white with mint and fea­tures dreamy brass ac­cents and art nou­veau-style il­lus­tra­tions— luxe decor that pairs per­fectly with what Tag­u­lao’s serv­ing in mac­aron-topped cups and fam­ily-recipe waf­fle cones: rich, creamy scoops of ar­ti­san flavours like crème de la crème, lemon and cof­fee laven­der. 2785 W 16th Ave., laglace.ca

Bio­philia Shop

This plant- decor shop and stu­dio is stocked with de­sign-for­ward, well- edited green­ery, ves­sels and orig­i­nal art­work from peo­ple who ac­tu­ally know how to grow things. Founded by Bio­philia land­scape de­sign firm prin­ci­pals Bianca Bod­ley and Lind­say Mitchell, the new store—fea­tur­ing a white in­te­rior paired with wood ac­cent planks and cop­per pipes—is a boon to the condo crowd, with its you- pot sec­tion, out­fit­ted with tools and bulk soil so pa­trons can pot on-site. And the prices! Clas­sic wrought iron hand tools at $18, wil­low trel­lises from $32: “Things shouldn’t have to be ex­pen­sive to be beau­ti­ful,” says Mitchell. 813 Fort St., bio­phil­i­a­col­lec­tive.ca
