Whenever we head over to Yorkville to check up on progress at Exhibit Residences, we can’t help but notice the new stores and cafes that always seem to be opening up in the area. We popped into a few recently which we’d like to showcase here on our blog.
Here’s what’s new in Yorkville.
The world leader in coffee machines has finally come to Toronto. You probably won’t be able to tell that this used to be the Cumberland Cinemas – it now resembles the coffee bars that can be found in other luxe neighbourhoods like the Champs-Elysees in Paris or the Upper East Side in New York. It only seems fitting then that Nespresso chose the luxurious Yorkville for their flagship store in Toronto.
We love the fact that there is no take away option at the Nespresso Bar. You can drink coffee there in the spacious lounge or buy the coffee pods but not get coffee in a paper cup to go. All the more reason to savour and enjoy your coffee and not gulp it down while on the go!
Canadian company Lolë recently opened up in Yorkville much to our pleasure. For those unfamiliar with the popular boutique, Lolë specializes in ladies active wear. They encourage healthy and active living and you only need to step into their boutique to realize this. Their clothing is vibrant, bold and beautiful. They also pride themselves on the fact that their clothing is functional yet still ultra feminine.
Lolë also created a meetup program where women can get together to work out and feel good.
Natural and organic beauty is all the rave right now and we love it! Husk recently opened up in Yorkville and they’re all about giving to others and also giving to yourself too. They emphasize the importance of taking care of your body and the natural elements that surround us. Husk sources beauty and health products from all around the world, giving the customer a wide variety of local and exotic treasures to enhance their beauty. We know we sound like an advert for Husk, but we can’t help it – we truly love their shop!
