Comings and goings: reader query

Hey Vicky -

You've always got your ear to the ground... any idea what's going into the former Mostly Danish Furniture?


Indeed! I confirmed this weekend that Fab Baby Gear is moving into the that space - I guess they need the room for strollers and furniture.

While I'm at it, I am overdue for a Comings and Goings post, so here goes.

Hintonburger is busily renovating and readying for a January move to the old KFC location. If you haven't had a chance to pick up some gift certificates, they make great stocking stuffers! It also appears they have found someone to sublet their current shack - to Suzy Q Doughnuts. They sell what look like pretty amazing doughnuts at the Lansdowne Market and they plan on opening a shop in the 'burg. I guess that doughnuts are the new cupcakes?

Speaking of cake, The Cake Shop is moving from their suburban location to 1200 Wellington, in the former PC Cyber location. Right next to the Emerald Bakery, which is unfortunate. But they do offer a different product and they are 100% nut free. It is an awful lot of cake for our neighbourhood, though! Miss Vicky is going to have to step up her workouts at Marshall's! Their facebook page promises coffee, seating and a cheesecake bar (an intriguing possibility).

On the other end of the strip, a new sandwich place has opened up across from Cafe Mio - according to a tweet by local artist Andrew King, they serve DiRienzo's sandwiches, but I haven't had a chance to check it out.

I have had the chance to check out the Red Sea Cafe, the new Ethiopian place on Holland. It is small and basic, but they do takeout at lunch and the food was mighty tasty. No license though, so if you like a beer to wash down your injera, you can always hit a pub afterwards.

The place I am looking forward to checking out is the Hintonburg Public House - they open their doors on Wednesday, right next to the soon-to-be Bridgehead at Fairmont and Wellington.

The former Videoflicks is going to be a phone and computer servicing place - which I guess we needed when we lost PC Cyber (the staff there had told me they were moving to that location, actually, but it seems they were in error).

I imagine I am missing a few spots, but that should do for now. Still trying to figure out what's going in to the former Dogz Spa and I have no idea what's up with Chrome Boyz. Post your intel here!

Now, can we please get some groceries on the eastern end of the strip? Pretty please?

Thanks for the update. It's very depressing that Fab Baby Gear is moving into a space with as much potential as like the former ByWay/Danish furniture location, but at least it's just a move, and our neighbourhood isn't going to be saddled with yet *another* store selling overpriced designer baby gear or trying-too-hard pseudo-hipster furniture.

Sorry to burst David's bubble, but I've heard a new furniture store is going into the former dog spa.
