    Lovely store with great selection and knowledgeable staff. Some rare books and first editions. Located in the heart of town - very quaint with coffee shops nearby.

    I went on Friday, February 10th and picked up a blueberry pie, cheesecake brownies lemon squares, date squares and butter tarts. Everything was excellent and not cloying sweet like so many desserts are. There was a lovely selection of gourmet goods and I bought a lemon dill dip. The person operating the counter/cash was very friendly. I'd ho again. I just wish it weren't so far away from me!

    Don is an amazing, generous person. I'm so glad the bowls made to help the wildlife in Australia were so popular. Way to go Don.
    This cafe is the best!

    This place is a lovely spot in the country, growing lavender organically, and selling a myriad of lavender products in their charming shop. The apiary creates amazing lavender honey. (HumbleBee apiarist Luc Peters started their organic apiary - he can tell you a lot about bees if you visit while he's there.)

    While visiting Canadian friends with some friends from home, we had mostly group activities, but one day was a free day to spend doing things with one’s home host or hostess. At mid-afternoon on that day, we went to Locke Street. We'd used it in the comings and goings all week.

    I always knew when we were traveling Locke Street because we'd go by a lot of historic churches and antique dealer shops.

    Some of the more historic churches included Locke Street Presbyterian Church (1886), Saint John the Evangelist Anglican Church (1891) which was my friend's church, Saint Joseph's Roman Catholic Church (1893), Herkimer Street Baptist Church (1897), and Immanuel Congregational Church (1897).

    Some of the dealers included J Taylor Antiques, Locke Street Antiques, Antiques On Locke, Olive's Oddments, and The Antique & Collectible Superstore were some that we browsed.

    Locke Street is also home to other types of shops and restaurants.

    Parts of Locke Street are quite trendy.

    Locke Street is definitely an area to visit for shopping, dining, and admiring architecture of 1800's churches and buildings from the Victorian Era.

    We rate Locke Street at 4.50 and recommend a visit.

    We found this shop located on the main shopping Street in Hamilton with parking close by. Full of antiques and shabby chic items there was so much to see. Looks like separate areas inside for different sellers so very interesting walking around.

    The store is very quaint and has great cheeses, meats, quality olive oils, vinegars and so much more! Milap was knowledgeable about the items they have and was great to talk to! We made a new friend!

    Huge variety of beautiful and unusual items made by local crafts-people. We ended up buying some glass cats to hang in our conservatory. They made it back to Scotland and they look just beautiful.

    A weekly visit for me. Great store, super friendly staff. They have all sorts of cool promotional events too. Sometimes there are signings, there's free comic book day. If you have any interest in comics you should check this place out.

    The mall is clean, the stores that are open are okay.
    Zig zags a bit - kind of quirky.
    Underground parking was great !
    Highlight was Nations Grocery store and the lovely middle aged lady "manning" the security / information kiosk (we were there ~ 5- 6pm on Thursday January 16th)
    She was a hoot !

    Excellent curries, and service.. The only problem is transportation. Taxi there was fine, but at the end of the meal we were unable to get transportation back to our hotel. Staff were unable to get us a taxi or Uber. Walking was a disaster. I am disabled and restaurant is well up Brick lane. It was p...... with rain. So don't go unless you can get out !!!
    Food great

    Unique, eclectic, delightful collection of home decor and accent pieces that are beautifully displayed. The staff was informative and helpful and the prices were very reasonable. Give yourself a good amount of time to take it all in!

    Went down to Ottawa street this past weekend. More trucks than what had been listed. Great variety, something for everyone. Tried several different foods. Best poutine ever triple cheese and bacon from TCS truck, Huge serving. Really good gyro on a pita from Tony's Greek truck. Pulled pork on a bun from Salted pig. Jerk chicken wrap, just enough spice, can't remember name of Jamaican truck sorry. Finished everything off with ice cream in a unique cone. We had first tried it at Pellar Estates food truck festival last August.
