Rosedale is arguably one of Toronto’s most beautiful neighbourhoods. Known for its higher-end stores, stunning homes, and charming side streets, it’s definitely a more upscale area but it’s easy to spend an afternoon just strolling and window-shopping. If you’re looking to explore this pocket of TO, then keep on reading to discover 9 spots just waiting for you!
Situated just off of Yonge Street on Roxborough is Gee Beauty and it’s a beauty lovers paradise. The store carries top notch brands like Dr. Barbara Sturm, Goop, Joanna Vargas, Tata Harper, and many more as well as its own in-house brand. Gee Beauty is truly a one-stop-shop as you can grab skincare products, cosmetics, and even wellness goodies all under one roof. If you’re all set for products, why not stop in for a customized facial or set of long lashes? Seriously — at Gee, all your beauty dreams can come true!
If all that window shopping has got you feeling peckish, I can’t recommend Pantry enough. This spot is right next door to Gee Beauty on the corner of Yonge & Roxborough and it’s the perfect spot for a fab breakfast sandwich, quality coffee, or quick lunch. Whether you’re in the mood for a hot meal or are craving a cold salad, Pantry has it all and then some. If you can’t make it to Pantry’s Rosedale location, you can check them out in Commerce Court or Leslieville, too. Plus, don’t forget to check out their Thanksgiving feast menu that you can have delivered right to your door!
If you’re all about having a well-curated shopping experience, then Want Apothecary needs to be on your radar. The store is highly revered for its selection of narrowly stocked brands worth the splurge like Jil Sander, Junya Watanabe, and Fleur du Mal as well as beauty brands like Grown Alchemist, Verso, and Byredo.
Terroni is known for having some of the best Italian food in the city and there’s a location right in the heart of Rosedale. Situated above its own Bar Centrate are two floors of dining space as well as a stunning rooftop patio that boasts incredible views of the city.

If you’re looking to stay as healthy as possible, make sure you’re getting in your greens and if you ask me, the easiest way to do that is to chug a green juice. One of the top juice companies in the city is Greenhouse Juice Co. and while there are locations and stockists all over Toronto, the brand’s Rosedale outpost should definitely be on your list.
Got a sweet tooth? Then head on over to Nadege Patisserie for a taste of France. Nadege is owned by baker extraordinaire Nadege Nourian and the patisserie is very well known for its delectable macarons, flaky croissants, exquisite treats.
If you’re down with cannabis, a visit to Rosedal’s coolest cannabis store Superette is in order. The store opened this spring and has everything you need to get educated, restock, and even get cozy. From pre-rolled joints, vaporizers, edibles, bongs, and even cute merch, Superette is a cannabis lover’s dreamland.
If luxe skincare and bodycare products are your thing, then it’s time you ventured into Aesop in Rosedale. Each Aesop location throughout the world is beautifully unique so if you’ve shopped the brand in another country, don’t expect its Toronto locations to look the same. Get ready to do some major damage on the brand’s hand soaps, lotions, and skincare products.
