Junction Area Real Estate
Credited with introducing Toronto to New York-style pizza in 1957, the Pugiliese family still own Vesuvio’s which is a local landmark where you’ll find all kinds (even off-duty police) lining up for a slice. Meanwhile the Indie Alehouse has a huge variety of beer and well-received gastropub fare. Coolhand of a Girl is popular example of the area’s thriving organic brunch spots.

Throughout the summer collectors and curators flock to the monthly outdoor Junction flea, selling everything from hand-painted signs to vintage purses and records. Year-round design stores like Mjolk draw artsy crowds and homeowners alike to admire the Scandinavian influenced furniture, clothing and ornaments. Elsewhere art-supply stores punctuate the area.
