ICYMI while celebrating your inner Irishness, Settlement Co. opened their second local outpost at the corner of King & Victoria in mid-March. So what does a baby blue VW Bug suspended in mid-air have to do with making excellent coffee? It's a question best contemplated with a steaming cup and a sweet treat in hand...
And perhaps you've been too busy gorging at delicious local restaurants (dreaming of patio weather) to notice the new spot to shop for food in DTK! J&P Grocery opened its doors off of Goudies Lane on March 22nd, and they've quickly become a go-to stop for downtownees. Read about their recent opening in the Kitchener Post.
Beyond stylish caffeine or kitchen supplies, there's also tons happening in April!
