A colorful piece of Toronto’s mosaic, the area surrounding Ossington and Dundas West in Trinity Bellwoods has become a hub of all things eclectic. For tourists looking to capture the local perspective, this buzzing area might just be the next best thing to hail from Toronto. Mere steps from the lush Trinity Bellwoods Park, the streets surrounding Ossington hide lovely boutiques where bespoke jewelry, home furnishings, tees, and other crafty inspirations are lovingly displayed in minimalist settings. Retail favorites include Shinola Detroit, Gravity Pope, as well as the first Lululemon shop dedicated to menswear, "The Local". In between jaunts to the next independent shop, locals can be spotted at Caldense or Nova Era Bakery, attempting to deem one as the best Portuguese sweet stop, or enjoying a craft ale at the Bellwoods Brewery.
