Susie Love is an artist and jewellery designer, who also has the best laugh in the city. (Seriously.) Her laptop was acting up, so she shared some of her favourite places in Toronto with us via text.
Favourite place to go for a drink during the week (and drink of choice)
The Drake; red wine.
To go for a drink on the weekend
Reposado Tequila Bar on Ossington to hear the gypsy swing band.
Aunties and Uncles on Lippincott.
Downward Dog on Queen.
Place to buy books and magazines
Pages and David Mirvish Books prior to their closing.
Place to buy fabric
macFab—their new location at Queen and Broadview is gorgeous!!
Favourite overall retail experience
At Holt Renfrew. I was exhausted and had heavy bags. Emily Heung ran around and collected all the things I needed—I didn’t even have to think. :)
Top vintage shop
Tie between 69 Vintage and I Miss You on Ossington.
Place to check out art
Queen West and the Distillery District.
Neighbourhood to go for a walk in
High Park—and it must include seeing the peacocks.

Zoots Café on Dundas.
Place in the city you feel most at home
My couch or my best friend’s couch.
