As the weather gets chillier, our human instinct is to crawl into our beds and hibernate for the season.
But this month, there are so many great new store and restaurant openings happening in the greater Toronto area — the opportunity to go out and explore what’s new definitely outweighs cold weather-induced introversion…at least for us!
If you’re on the hunt for what’s new and happening, check out our top 10 picks of the best new store and restaurant openings in Toronto and beyond.
Calling all foodies! A new plant-based resto has opened at 620 King St. West and it’s giving us all the best vibes. At LOV, freshness and flavour are a the centre of everything. With plush booths and greenery hanging from the ceiling, this spot is perfect for your next brunch, lunch, or dinner date.
Housed in a beautiful historic mansion in Rosedale is CLEMENTINE’S, a modern boutique founded by mother-daughter duo Christina and Kelly McDowell. The boutique, which recently relocated, features exclusive made-for-store womenswear from Canadian designers, like Narces and UNTTLED, ready-to-wear from international labels like MS MIN, Iro, and Vince, to name a few, and beautifully curated homewares sourced from around the globe. Visit the new CLEMENTINE’S location at 1054 Yonge St.
Opening its second Toronto location is Neo Coffee Bar. The modern Japanese-inspired bakery and cafe opened at College and Bay at the end of October and features a variety of Japanese coffee and matcha, Neo Chouz cream puffs, sandwiches, muffins, and more. We suggest the house-made roll cakes if you’re looking for a little pick-me-up!
Popular Canadian intimates brand Knix has found itself a permanent home on Toronto’s vibrant Queen St. West. The stunning new flagship is clean and bright, featuring orange and yellow tones, a mural by Toronto-based artist Leia Bryans, and a set of change rooms tucked away for extra privacy. Head to the new shop at 630 Queen St. West to browse Knix’s line of bras, tank tops with built-in cups, leak proof underwear, comfy loungewear, and more.
A second Heartland Town Centre WINNERS is now open in Mississauga! Located at 765 Britannia Road, the new WINNERS is absolutely massive, standing at 28,000-square-feet. It features an expanded beauty section, a well-stocked contemporary section, tons of winter outerwear, and much, much more. The best part yet? It’s just a stone’s throw away from the Mavis and Matheson location, so you can hit up both!
Another new Mississauga gem to check out is Nügateau at Square One Shopping Centre. The éclair-only patisserie is a dessert lover’s dream. Marking its third location, visitors can try seasonal fall flavours like S’more éclair with milk chocolate crémeux, marshmallow fluff, and graham cracker, and a Stéphanie Tatin éclair filled with vanilla pastry cream and topped with caramelized apples and 24k gold leaf. Our mouths are watering!
If the new WINNERS in Mississauga is too far of a trek for you, don’t fret! Another downtown Toronto location has opened in Liberty Village.
