This cafe always highlights local bakeries and coffee roasteries. You won't be disappointed from getting one of their cortados and a pumpkin dark chocolate brownie. And there's many parks within walking distance to sip your caffeine and people watch.

One of my treat-yourself places when I need a good brunch pick-me-up. You can't go wrong with their lemon ricotta pancakes, apple compote roasted pumpkin french toast, and their avocado shitake mushroom eggs benedict.

Incredible coffee -- selected and brewed with the belief that they're serving the best (taste wise and on a sustainable level) Great outdoor seating -- super compatible for bringing your beloved pets. Quiet and peaceful space since it's off the main road.

Best japanese food in the city -- hands down. Reasonably priced for such high quality of raw seafood, perfectly grilled meats, and fresh vegetables. I've been going here for more than 10 years and the consistency has never stopped impressing me. Just go here and have fun :)

Plant shops
This is my go-to shop for handtied fresh and dried flower bouquets and seasonal wreaths. The owner, Marisa, is one of the loveliest human beings I know and she puts her heart and soul into this nursery/plant shop. She sources everything you might need with intention and a consideration for pricing. You can ask her about any product she carries from planters, ceramics, books, posters, etc and she'll always have a story to tell about how she found these local artisans who make high quality products at an affordable price.

Vintage (clothes, furniture, homegoods)
They do such a great job curating their vintage with some much intention and an awareness for a reasonable price point. They freshly launder and/or repair anything they sell. I have a beautiful amber glass 70's pitcher and 100% linen Japanese tea towels that were hand-dyed with indigo from them that I use everyday.
