east side

Over the weekend, Adam and I ventured out to Queen East. My very first apartment when I moved to Toronto with Joe over 10 years ago (whoa!) was actually on Queen East near Pape. Back then, the area was, lets just say, quite a bit seedier and undesirable. Now, there are tons of great vintage and modern housewares stores, specialty shops and cute cafes. 
Joe and I actually moved back to the east end again about six years ago, this time to the Beaches area. We absolutely hated it (relying on the Queen streetcar to get anywhere made us crazy) even though we had a way larger apartment that cost way less than what we pay now.
I guess I'm a west-end girl at heart, but visiting the east side was still a nice way to pass an afternoon.
