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.
Not where you’d expect to find a decent cup of hot chocolate, but trust me, it’s pretty awesome. This home décor shop meets nursery (read: garden supplies) offers a nice little rest area in the form of a long harvest table where you can enjoy sandwiches and pastries, or simply sip on some of the best hot chocolate in town.
