Looking for cool kitchen stores in Toronto

Hi there !

I am looking for cool kitchen stores in Toronto selling stylish, unique and higher-end products. Do any of you have recommendations?

Thank you in advance!

    I love Degrees on Yonge, north of Eglinton. Also, I know it's not a kitchen store, but Homesense has some great deals on quality stuff.

      This thread from last week has lots of suggestions.


      And if you don't mind paying higher prices, Junors in Bayview Village mall has some nice things. And there's always Williams Sonoma for crazy prices, but beautiful goods.

        You might also really like "Good Egg" in Kensington Market.

        A really sweet spot! Here's a link to their website: http://www.goodegg.ca/

          A very pretty store, but the prices are not for the faint of heart.

          The Inspired Cook on Queen East, just east of Greenwood on the north side of the street sounds like just what you are looking for. High end stuff, stylish, a realy nice shop.

            High Tech, on Front St. near the SLM has some great kitchen stuff. Very modern and cool and more than a little pricy. Fun to check out, though...

              Bergo in the Distillery District features a variety of designers and items that are very fun to look at - very stylish with prices to match, but there are some items that are surprisingly reasonable.

                Two on the Danforth: A Cook's Place and IQ Living. The first is a more traditional kitchen shop, and the second is a lot like High Tech, with lots of cool tools and sleek accessories, plus some more core equipment.

                  Old thread, but I'm surprised the various Nella incarnations aren't mentioned. Whilst they're industry-suppliers, they're happy to sell retail and trust you me: it's worth the trip up to Rexdale.

                    There is a Nella on Bathurst and Bloor area.

                      Nella Cucina on Bathurst is a spinoff of Nella Cutlery, but very different...more retail oriented. Nella Cutlery is industry oriented. Huge warehouse store with all the big appliances and equipment. Kind of fun to go and look at the massive mixers and house shaped wood ovens.
