Our Favourite Places in and Around the Yonge and Eglinton Area
We recently moved to the Yonge and Eglinton area and could not be happier here! The community is so friendly, diverse and is surrounded by great restaurants, coffee shops, spas and grocery stores! Here are just a few of our favourites and why we love the area so much.
Located just east of Yonge Street on Eglinton Avenue is one of the four Fresh restaurants in Toronto. Arguably the city’s most well-known eatery for vegetarian fare, Fresh is one of our favourite spots for its friendly atmosphere and vast, yet reliable menu. Whether you’re meeting friends for lunch or need to grab a quick and healthy meal to go, Fresh offers everything from nourishing smoothies and salads to warming soups and grain bowls. We love that there are so many options to choose from and that everything is healthy and delicious!
This micro roaster and café is located on Yonge street just south of Castlefield Ave. De Mello prides themselves in their high quality coffee and in their intricate roasting technique. The cafe has a great ambiance and is the perfect spot for a home-style lunch or study/work spot. There’s plenty of space and the treats are all baked in house and to die for! Be sure to try their Ethiopia blend – it is out of this world.
Our Wellness is a small but well-stocked health and supplement store located just down the street from our Yonge and Eglinton location. Owner Tatjana, is a Certified Nutritional Consultant that has extensive knowledge on all things natural health related. She greets all of her customers with a warm welcome and a sweet smile.
With lots of high quality supplements, she’s an excellent resource for those who aren’t sure what they should be reaching for. For budding herbalists, she also stocks a wide variety of dried herbs in bulk. It’s hard to walk away without your hands full of Tatjana’s wonderful goodies.
This Toronto-based company is located just a few blocks north of our Yonge and Eglinton location. Consonant specializes in all-natural skin and body care products. The philosophy behind this local favourite is that what goes on your body goes into your body, and this is exemplified in their use of organic botanicals and 100% natural ingredients. Rather than covering up and hiding blemishes, these items are formulated to work in harmony with your body’s chemistry in order to heal your skin overtime.
Not only are the products effective and true to their claim, but the staff delivers exceptional customer service and demonstrates their knowledge and passion for the products. This is definitely a must-try for those looking for natural skincare products that actually work!
