If you don’t know anything about Kitchener, you’re about to learn a thing or two.
Get your flu shot! (Rexall link/SDM Link) I took this leaving the Rexall on Frederick earlier this week. I normally always go to Shoppers Drug Mart, but I like this Rexall because it’s always so quiet and chill. Also they’ve got M&M food.
Frederick is an interesting street, this is just next to Weber Park. You’ve got a big park, old shopping mall and houses all competing to define the character of area. For me, the charm of the houses wins-out, but you can always feel the commercial part of it.
Ontario Street is a gem in Downtown Kitchener, and all on one street you get the amenities you’d be used to in Toronto. There’s Legacy Greens which is a green grocer with treats, meats, gifts, and food to go. There’s the Adventurer’s Guild for playing games with friends with food and drink. There’s also an indie coffee shop called Show&Tell. You don’t see it here, but further up the street there is an indie cinema called The Apollo. Lastly, it’s not Kitchener without an European restaurant, and for this we have Two Goblets and their awesome Schnitzel sandwiches to-go.
