If you want a cheaper, quicker alternative to Vij's they also run Rangoli, also excellent, right next door.

Great sushi and Japanese foods. The bundled boxes and dinners are great deals. The quality is much better here than at the many all-you-can-eat sushi joints in town. (Temaki is not all you can eat.)

Iconic Canadian coffee & doughnut chain. If you want to order like a Canadian, ask for a "double double" (coffee w/ 2 creams & 2 sugar). Note: If you are picky about coffee, this is not a good choice!

The best-priced option for groceries, but it’s a bit of a walk. It’s not far past Temaki Sushi, so if you check out Temaki, it could be a good opportunity to pick a few things up at IGA.
