This unique flower and gift shop with a café breathes life into Little Italy year-round. Whether you need fresh-cut blooms for your special event, or are just shopping for decorative vases and gifts, you’ll love the bright, cheery atmosphere and friendly staff. End your visit with a shot of Italian espresso surrounded by the warmth and beauty of the greenhouse.
This flower and gift shop in Little Italy has plenty of picnic party gear, including durable Tekton wine glasses, Boska Pro cheese knives, colourful napkins and bamboo cutting boards. They even have tongs designed to look like silver twigs, for a utensil that is outdoorsy and beautiful. Plus, they carry pashminas big enough to double as picnic blankets, in addition to actual patio and picnic tablecloths.
My sweet Nana first introduced me to this funky shop, tucked away in Little Italy. In honour of their name, which means “courtyard,” they have a beautiful indoor courtyard, where you can enjoy lunch from their café. Treat yourself to a latte while you browse for that ideal bridal shower gift. They have a vast selection of neat gifts, including gurgle pots. Another classic gift you could pick up from Zocalo’s is a Brown Betty teapot. The teapot comes from England, and its design helps give the tea more freedom to swirl around, making the tea more flavourful.
