Hamilton has much to offer to foodies. Ottawa Street Long-time Hamiltonians know Ottawa Street either


for its abundance of fabric stores, farmers' market or cof- fee shops. While they are still around, there’s much more as this east-end stretch reinvents itself as the Design District. You can still find plenty of fabric retailers, but these days, you’ll find more retailers dedicated to home improvement, whether you need a chair re-upholstered, rugs or contemporary lighting fixtures. Go new or go old with an expanding array of antique,vintage or col- lectible shops and unique boutiques selling everything from soy candles to chalk paint. A fresh wave of new restaurants, like the second location for the popular gourmet Hamburger Spot, Hambrgr, Gorilla Cheese, Black Sheep Snack Bar and Southern Smoke Barbecue, join the street scene next to favourites like Café Limon- cello (a top spot for Italian fare). Restaurant hop and browse to your heart’s content, then grab a selfie next to the statue of Tim Horton, the hockey player who helped launch the ubiquitous coffee franchise, with the very first location started here. Pop in and head upstairs, which serves as a mini museum that pays homage the chain’s caffeine- and donut-fueled past.


Every second Friday the arts scene comes to life with the Art Crawl. Dundas Tis picturesque and historic little town is considered


part of Hamilton. But it can stand on its own as an appeal- ing destination. Its picture perfect downtown is dotted with independent retailers and restaurants. It has plenty of au- thentically retro places like the Collins Hotel (circa 1840), Mickey McGuire’s Cheese (around 25 years and counting), Picone Fine Food (100 years in Dundas) and Taylor’s Tea Room (20 years-plus). Te locals seem to appreciate good food of all descriptions. Quatrefoil is fine dining at its best – a past En Route magazine pick for best new restaurant in Canada, Bangkok Spoon earns high praise for its top-notch Tai cuisine (including a wickedly good pad thai). When you get thirsty, follow the crowd to the beloved Detour Coffee, where java is treated with respect and reverence, made from its own roasted beans. Beer lovers can sample the latest creations from the Shawn & Ed Brewing Com- pany, including beer aged in wine barrels. With so much going on, you’ll need a day or two just to hit the highlights and find some time to explore the myriad of hiking trails around. While in Dundas, do yourself a favour and book yourself a room at Osler House, an elegant bed and break- fast located in a stunning house circa 1840.
