SHOP HERE: Tokyo Smoke
Envisioned by Quadrangle’s Lorne Gertner with his son and former Google employee Alan, this tucked-away industrial space is equal parts coffee shop and cannabis-culture boutique. High and lowbrow impulse buys cater to the addictions of neighbouring city slickers.
Best Bets: Fuel your pothead pal’s vice with pure hemp rolling papers or pre-rolled smoking cones ($3); the Chemex pour over coffee maker is a low-tech way to brew top-notch java ($40); A Keith Haring-print handbag is sure to attract the attention of style bloggers ($150). 850B Adelaide St W Mon-Sat 7:30-7:30 tokyosmoke.com
