#WelliWander with Toon Dreessen

Toon Dreessen is president of Architects DCA, a Wellington West business for over 20 years. Architects DCA recently moved offices to a new location, choosing to stay in Wellington West for the great location and good energy. Toon is an avid amateur chef and loves the foodie vibe, good shopping, and walkability of the ‘hood. Here are the top five places he likes to check out on his #WelliWander:

Wellington Gastropub

Their incredible menu and beer selections are always a treat. The ever-changing menu delights the senses and the service is impeccable. The street-front patio is a great way to enjoy a leisurely lunch.

Ottawa Bagel Shop and  Deli

The friendly staff knows their community. Comfortable places to sit on the patio, enjoy a tasty snack or meal with a coffee is a treat. Bringing home a bag of fresh bagels, salmon and cream cheese is a dinner treat.

Max’s Shoe Repair

Kind and knowledgeable service with talented folks who care for your shoes. When I bring in my Fluevogs, I know that they are in good hands and come back better than new.

Bloomfield Flowers West

Always incredible service with beautiful arrangements. Stepping into the store is literally a breath of fresh: the fresh plants and flowers fill your heart with joy and lighten your soul.

Ministry of Coffee and Social Affairs

Excellent brews and impeccable service combined with an eclectic setting and vibe make this a great place to stop, grab something to go, or sit and linger for a while.
