Hand­made cana­di­ana

Ev­ery­thing in Flock, a bright and cheer­ful bou­tique, is Cana­dian-made, sus­tain­able, or a com­bi­na­tion of both. Owned and op­er­ated by two in­de­pen­dent de­sign­ers with a com­mit­ment to eth­i­cal fash­ion, their col­lec­tions sourced from Cana­dian de­sign­ers are a lively blend of prints and tex­tures ap­plied to flat­ter­ing sep­a­rates and bold dresses. Un­con­ven­tional jew­ellery and house­wares are also part of the mix. 1275 Welling­ton St. W., work­shop­bou­tique.ca

seafood favourite

One of the most im­pres­sive eater­ies in the city, Sup­ply and

De­mand is an in­no­va­tive pasta and seafood restau­rant. Case in point is the squid ink riga­toni dish. Don’t miss Sun­day’s “Bub­bles & Bi­valves”: half-price bub­bly and buck-fifty-a-shuck oys­ters! 1335 Welling­ton St. W., sup­plyand­de­mand­foods.ca

Ve­gan treats

Pop­tarts, ice cream sand­wiches, pizza, hand­pies — you name it, Lit­tle Jo Berry’s Cof­fee & Eats has it. All its snacks and meals (and even cheeses!) are free of dairy and eggs, and re­ally big on va­ri­ety and colour. 1305 Welling­ton St. W., lit­tle­jober­rys.com

mu­sic Shop

The Record Cen­tre is the ideal des­ti­na­tion to shop for vinyl records or high-end sound equip­ment. You might even stum­ble on a show, as lo­cal and tour­ing mu­si­cians of­ten play in their lounge area. Among rows of speak­ers and turnta­bles are stacks of new and vin­tage vinyl, a lis­ten­ing sta­tion, and a record­clean­ing ma­chine. 1099 Welling­ton St. W., there­cord­cen­tre.com

lo­cal pub

Hin­ton­burg Pub­lic House fea­tures lo­cal beers on tap, art from the re­gion on dis­play, and a friendly, ca­sual at­mos­phere.

It’s a great choice for tra­di­tional pub fare with a con­tem­po­rary edge, known for hav­ing some of the city’s best fries (with de­li­cious roasted gar­lic sauce for dip­ping) and a killer home­made veg­e­tar­ian burger. 1020 Welling­ton St. W., hin­ton­burg­pub­li­c­house.ca
