Amongst the wonderful transformations our Bloor-Yorkville area has seen over the past few years, comes new neighbours, and several relocations of our long-time businesses. Here is peek at who is new and who has moved in the BIA.
SEE Eyewear – 153 Cumberland Street
SEE Eyewear, one of our new unique members, offers high-quality, one-of-a-kind fashion eyewear, at an affordable price. With 40 locations in the US, SEE Eyewear recently opened their Canadian flagship store at 153 Cumberland, right beside the Village of Yorkville Park. “SEE remains the “go to” locale for eyewear aficionados looking for the closest thing to custom frames – made possible by SEE’s philosophy of producing incredibly small quantities (many times only one or two of a single frame in a specific colour per city or per store).”
Rolltation – 758 Yonge Street
With several locations throughout Toronto, Rolltation is known for making some of the most incredible sushi burritos in the city, and now you can taste their Asian fusion right here in the Bloor-Yorkville neighbourhood. From poke bowls, curry chicken, to fruity tofu, and kimchi beef options, everyone’s palate will be pleased!
nobis – 20 Hazelton Avenue
On your way to Yorkville Village, pop into nobis. Latin for “us”, nobis “inspires you to take your passion anywhere, joining a global collective.” Known for their performance gear in outerwear, footwear and accessories, nobis promises that their timeless apparel will take you anywhere, “Move from mountains to the city streets, exploring the wilderness or trying a new menu. Walk, drive, cycle or fly anywhere, any time with sophistication and comfort.”
Sorelle and Co. – 161 Yorkville Avenue
Sorelle and Co. is Toronto’s most popular and indulgent vegan cafe completely free of nuts, gluten, soy, sesame, and preservatives. The café was inspired by one mother’s struggles with raising five little girls with allergies, and has become widely-known as an excellent choice for catering, without the worry of serving guests who have certain food sensitivities. Stop by and try their decadent Red Velvet Cupcake with cream cheese frosting, you won’t regret it.
Naan & Kabob – 691 Yonge Street
Looking for Afghan street food? Take a jaunt down Yonge Street to the newly opened Naan & Kabob. This fourth location in Toronto will fulfill your need for spice. Locally-sourced, fresh ingredients and produce, antibiotic-free halal meats, combined exotic spices give the authentic flavours of Afghanistan right here in Toronto.
Thomas Hinds Tobacconist moved a few doors down on Cumberland Street to make way for the new development at Cumberland and Yonge. Find them now at 18 Cumberland Street.
Wolford Boutique moved from the street facing location on Cumberland Street to a quaint store frontage on Old York Lane. While Tanya Heath, moved from Old York Lane to 126 Cumberland Street.
If you cannot find your favourite Belgian Chocolate in Holt Renfrew Centre, don’t worry, De Meersman didn’t move far. You can now indulge your sweet tooth at their 2 Bloor Street West location, on the upper level of Cumberland Terrace.
