#WelliWander with Laryssa from ORESTA

Like many other merchants in Wellington West, the owner of ORESTA organic skin care apothecary not only works in the area, but she also lives, shops and plays here too! We spoke to Laryssa about what she loves so much about it:

“Owning a business in Hintonburg and living in Wellington Village, Wellington West is truly my local neighbourhood! There are so many incredible shops, restaurants and services that I am within walking distance, here are just a few of my favourites, even though I could name so many more!”

Trove Fashion

I have always loved to go thrifting for a one of a kind find!  I love to pop into Trove Fashion and see what fabulous upcycled clothing, jewellery or shoes I can find.    

Tennessy Willems

Delicious wood-fired pizza and salad that is easy as a weeknight dinner!  Authentic wood oven pizza that uses fresh natural ingredients from local farmers and is so delicious! 


It’s so much more than a flower shop!  I love to shop for a hand tied bouquet, a plant to green up a space or a unique lantern, vase or blanket to spruce up any decor.   

Bread By Us

The fresh sourdough never makes it home as a full loaf and truly, the croissants are the best in the city!
