Dundas General

Dundas General Store is a general store and cafe where you can grab cafe fare and browse lifestyle items that are independently and locally produced.

The space is a collision of cozy and industrial with lots of concrete and metal and touches like a flowering mural on one wall.

The store is divided into rough sections: food products, men’s lifestyle products, women’s lifestyle products, pets, and kitchen, and then of course there’s the sandwich and pastry case and cafe section.

Candles by 100 Years of Love ($27.99) ease the transition between men’s and women’s sections, locally made and utterly hypnotic smelling. You can smell candles with names like Femme Fatale and Burn Baby Burn by sniffing the glass hoods testers are kept under.
