The Junction

This was first place where we lived here in Toronto.

If you want to look at facts I can say that this neighbourhood was previously an independent village, town and city until amalgamating with Toronto in 1909. The main intersection of the area is that of Dundas Street West and Keele Street.

But I started thinking about what makes a neighbourhood our home, not just a passing street and I realised that it’s the supermarket you usually go, the place where you buy your bread, a hairdresser that understands your wishes,the places you pass by every day and regularly window shop.

All of this only comes with time and it’s not something you would go there for. But, on the other hand some restaurants of the area are worth a try.My recomendations are:

P1050859Crema Coffee Co-If you want to have a coffee, a cake and spend some time talking with your friends this is the place. It is also a super kind friendly place and on the weekends you can see the kids from the karate school across the street lining up for a muffin after practice.

P1050857FATIMA’S CAFE BISTRO – You can actually have a healthy , tasty brunch here.The food has an european/french delicacy to it. Sometimes there is live music at night.

P1050870VESUVIO – If you’re in the mood for pizza and pasta here they are delicious. Apparently they are known as one of the best among the italian community, so they must be really  that good.

P1050873Indian Kiss – Unfortunately just Take- Out but delicious, spicy indian food.The owner is super friendly, one of those persons who puts you in a good mood just with her smile.

This are all good reasons for a visit to the Junction and , who knows, maybe you’ll find something that makes this part of town your neighbourhood.

    In my town, it’s the coffee shop or place where you might have breakfast on the weekend. It’s those places where people congregate and say Hi everyday.

      Kari- All around town you feel that there are people from everywhere.It’s easy to find something you relate with and not to feel overwelmed by the city.
