Translated from Spanish, “zocalo” translates as a colourful centre of community life. This Little Italy business features a courtyard, garden, floral gallery and a delightful European-style café. With indoor and outdoor plants, contemporary florals, pots, vases and home accents, you'll find plenty of creative design choices for your living space.
Zocalo co-owners Miranda Ringma and Ken Bregenser delight at every opportunity to share their unique space with customers and take great pride in building lasting relationships with the community.
“We’ve really got a great team of florists, horticulturists and baristas who are all very engaged,” Miranda says. “At Zocalo we love to share and celebrate food at the courtyard table, encompassing all the flowers, treats, tabletop and plants that make that make those celebrations colourful and special."

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.
