If you follow our Instagram stories, you will catch glimpses of our wonderful Trinity-Bellwoods neighbourhood. We love being a part of this pretty locale, always bustling with activity.
The Trinity-Bellwoods Park, spans the entire length of the Trinity-Bellwoods neighbourhood. The park features a paved walking path that is highlighted by cast iron lamp poles and lush greenery. It is always such a pretty sight to see people relax and spend a summer day with their families and pets here. Every Tuesday from May to October, Trinity-Bellwoods also hosts a farmers market, selling everything from fresh fish, pickles, organic vegetables, to oysters and wine!
A rare Toronto animal and the Trinity-Bellwoods mascot, the white squirrel, also makes an appearance from time to time – you just have to be lucky enough to spot it. The park is home to these white cuties and our staff have seen them several times, mainly park’s Crawford and Queen entrance.
We also have the Tampered Press, a quaint cafe with windows overlooking the park, serving the most amazing gourmet coffee.
Next door to the Press is Salon Goulart run by two of our favourite sisters. Visit them when you feel like pampering yourself with with the ultimate in skin, hair and nail care services.
A five-minute walk from our Dundas Street West location is Artscape Toronto, a not-for-profit urban development organization that makes space for creativity and transforms communities. This summer, Le Dolci will be hosting a few classes and our Kids Summer Camps at Artscape Toronto. Learn to decorate cupcakes and naked cakes, and make classic pies too in this gorgeous venue.
We are also neighbors with Matthew House, a community of three homes that welcomes and assists newly arrived refugee claimants, offering hope at the end of their long journey on the refugee highway. Nothing makes us happier than the housemates at Matthew House devouring our cakes and sweet treats, and we love seeing the smiles on their faces.
How can we forget to include Ossington Village? The famous influx of bars, restaurants and boutiques across the stretch of South Ossington between Queen and Dundas makes for the best three blocks for drinking and dining. We love doing yoga classes at YogaSpace, visiting Bellwoods Brewery for a pint, taking in some people watching at Ideal Coffee and browsing beautiful bridal wear at Loversland. You are guaranteed a great meal at every restaurant on the strip, we can’t name our faves as we love them all.
There isn’t a dull moment in this neighborhood, and we love being a part of all the fun. Pass by the shop to pick up some treats before exploring our neighbourhood. Also you can see classes in action when you come by on a weekend.
See you soon!
