Toronto's Distillery District

A few weeks ago, my husband had an art exhibition in one of the galleries within Toronto’s historic Distillery District. And as it was such a beautiful afternoon, I took the opportunity to snap a few photos of the area to share with you.
The Vintage Gardener: An absolutely enchanting little flower shop. 

En route to Balzac’s for a latte.

An interior shot of Balzac’s (not mine) – because I had to show you the most beautiful coffee shop I’ve ever seen.

Outside Arta Gallery where my husband occasionally shows his work.

Cobblestone streetscape.

The Fermenting Cellar: A grand place to hold any special event.
