Cool stuff with serious street cred

DL-W15-Urban-tokyo2

SHOP HERE: Tokyo Smoke

DL-W15-Urban-chemexEnvisioned 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
