There are a lot of incredible flower shops in Toronto but there's something really special and genuine about Coriander Girl that makes it worth the trek across the city to Parkdale.
Maybe it's the bohemian yet whimsical arrangements created by owner Alison Westlake; or the cute gifts you can buy from handcrafted cards to jewelry; or that you'll be able to finally take flower arranging classes from the master herself. Or maybe it's because you just want to pet her bunny, Harry (not kidding!). There's usually a cast of characters in and out of the shop including some pretty adorable dogs, as well.
The best part? Sometimes, she can make you a quick mini bouquet for under $10! Westlake provides the simple yet most treasured pleasures in life.
