10 new stores and restaurants on Dundas West

Dundas West is proving itself as one of Toronto's most dynamic streets with a ton of new stores and restaurants opening up in the last few months. From 24 hour diners to ice cream to home decor crafted in Portugal there's lots to like here.

Here's a round-up of new stores and restaurants to check out on Dundas West.

Saudade
This adorable shop carries a collection of Portuguese designers and brands with a little something for everyone. Stop in on your next tour of the neighbourhood and check out their wares. Stop by for hand woven blankets, soap, kitchen items or other unexpected finds perfect for gifting.

Old School
24-hr BBQ. That may just be the best and most dangerous sentence I've ever heard. Next time you're craving some delicious meat head to Chef Brad Moore's newest brainchild at any hour of the day. I predict this will change the late-night snacking game in the neighbourhood.

Scoop Shop
This is the perfect summer retreat not far from Trinity Bellwoods. Custom make an ice cream sandwich with any two of their delicious fresh baked cookies and your choice of ice cream flavour. Yum!

Oh My Lard
BBQ served the way it was meant to be out of an upcycled shipping container at Market 707. Get your hands on one of their pulled pork sandwiches ASAP. It'll change the way you think about BBQ.

Tucana Cafe
This floral and cozy coffee shop is a must visit while you're strolling through the neighbourhood. Stop by for a cortado and why not treat yourself to a yummy vegan cookie while you're here.

Loveless
Show some love to Unlovable owners' newest offering Loveless. This place has a similar laid back feel as it's older counterpart. There's patio seating in the summer and coffee, cocktails or beer all the time.

Northern Belle
Northwood's little sister, is your best bet for classic cocktails in the neighbourhood. While you're here take a look at their menu and put together a nice little charcuterie snack for yourself.

Solita
Do you know what you're having for dinner tonight? Head to Solita for all the best Italian ingredients and fixings. Don't feel like cooking? Why not pick up one of their soup, deli or pasta specials. Also, there's some great cannoli to be had here.

Souppe Shoppe
Inspired by the diverse flavours from around the city, this Market 707 container offers a list of soups with local and fresh ingredients. I was lucky enough to try some of their Gazpacho and I highly recommend it. Get some before they sell out.

North of Brooklyn at Get Well
I was already a huge fan of Get Well but they've made it even better by inviting North of Brooklyn Pizzeria inside to keep them company. That's right friends, you can now get slices and full pies of this delicious pizza here until last call.
