Ledbury Park (Avenue and Lawrence)
What do people love about Ledbury?
The community vibe and family focus is an enormous draw in this neighbourhood. This entire pocket is named after the park it was built around. That certainly says a lot!
Apart from the park - which includes an outdoor pool in the summer and a skating rink in the winter, the community centre is well known and loved for offering excellent recreational programs for children and grown-ups alike.
The retail offerings are plentiful and include everything from flower shops to restaurants, clothing stores to grocery stores and everything in between.
Some of my favourites places in the area include:
Parpar - this is one of two locations. Lucky for me this one is near my office and the other is near my home so I can run in the moment they post about a sale or a new shipment. Follow them on Instagram (@parparboutique) so you can be in the know too!
great for groceries and especially excellent produce and meats. Their made for you sandwiches at the deli counter are a big hit at lunchtime. Just grab a bun and hand it over to the staff at the counter who will make you a delicious custom sandwich and hand it back to you with a smile.
The Rolling Pin (@therollingpinto)
they are known for their pies and cakes as well as their donuts. All are delicious! Here is a tip for you too - they sell their pie crusts! I order them every Thanksgiving for my family's favourite pumpkin pie.
When I am cooking for a crowd and need a good shortcut this is a product I count on. It has to be of excellent quality to make the cut and this one is even better than my own!
Did you say you love burgers?
Or was that me?
In any case, if you have not tried Nozomi you are missing out. Don't believe me? Check out their "food porn" feed for yourself @nozomikitchen. Now walk there, drive there, or bike there but just get there. You are welcome!
Is it date night?
Time for a family celebration? Or do you just need some delicious and thoughtfully prepared comfort food? You can't go wrong at Franco Bollo @francobolloto - although if you want to know my top pic from there it is their eggplant milanese.
Sometimes the simplest dishes are the best because of the freshness of the components and the way each ingredient is treated. This one is for sure a winner in my book. You just try it and let me know.
With excellent transit, fabulous schools, a very short drive to the 401 and a warm and welcoming community, this neighbourhood is tops for those in the know.
