Super long walk along St Clair West

1 May

Oh man. Him and Her went on this super long walk yesterday.  We did it partially to discover more of what our neighbourhood has to offer and partially to take pictures of the streetcar stop art installations that dot the rail line along the street.* It was a long day, but very rewarding.  We even got to walk with one of Her’s old school chums for a part of the journey.

We stopped off at the Big Slice which is east of Dufferin.  Yumyum.  Very good pizza, and such great deals.  Her and I split a “big plate.”  However, I can’t imagine their being a plate big enough to contain what we got with our meal.  Half order of parm-parm alfredo and slice of pep pizza for Her and a half order of chicky-catch and a slice of deluxe pizza for him.  Plus garlic bread for us to share.  Just unreal, we were both stuffed.  And for only $10.75!  The pizza toppings were amazing, so fresh.  We both highly recommend it if you’re in the Corso Italia neighbourhood.

Speaking of Corso Italia, we both really liked the area.  Does anyone have experience living there?  Could be a spot that we look to for when we buy the His and Her’s headquarters…

The only other spot that we actually stopped for something in particular was in Forest Hill Village for Her favourite books that came in to Type Books for her.  After that we sampled some free coffee and Belgian waffles that Village Chill (an ice cream, waffle and coffee place in Forest Hill Village) were handing out on the street.  Very num num on both accounts.

The Village Chill

And that was our day.  Like I said, keep in mind that we’ll be profiling the art that we saw along St Clair in future posts.  We also might go into some detail about the immediate area of the art.  Fun!

    I’ve live in Corso Italia for about 3 years now and I love it. It’s a quick bus ride to Bloor and Lansdowne an area that is slowly coming to life with cool cafes and diners.

    Other places you should check out in Corso Italia- Marcellos on Dufferin and St. Clair, great Italian food. La Palamo gelato near Lansdowne.

      It’s a great area! We like that it’s definitely growing – seems like the kind of place that would be good to move in now before prices start to go up.

      We’ve actually heard good things about Marcello’s from a couple people – we’ll have to check it out on our next date night! Thanks for the recommendation – we’ll be sure to post on it when we go!
