Friday Five: Celebrate the Start of Summer
This Friday, we’re ringing in the official start of summer in Downtown Oakville. Celebrate the season at one of these Downtown Oakville businesses (and, when you’re done, stop by Towne Square and have a rest in our new outdoor lounge):
Ricarda’s – 312 Lakeshore Road East
Nothing says summer like a glass of sangria on a sunny patio. Stop by Ricarda’s to enjoy their signature cocktails and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. Pictured here is the Grilled Green Asparagus & BelGioioso Burrata, Grilled Flatbread, Creamy PEI Mussels, Red Sangria and Oakville Mojito. Top off your meal with a Café Gourmand.
Winterberry Lane – 166 Lakeshore Road East
Turn your home into a calming oasis with classic pieces from Winterberry Lane. Located in the historic Bank Building, this beautiful store is packed with two stories of elegant furniture, decor and accessories. While you’re here, don’t forget to check out “the vault”, a tucked away section of the store where you can find artisan jewellery and accessories that will have you looking just as stylish as your newly decorated home!
Croissant Express – 325 Lakeshore Road East
This cafe is famous for its buttery, melt-in-your-mouth croissants, all-day breakfast and espresso drinks. For added indulgence, enhance your croissant with delicious fillings like almond jam, pistachio or chocolate and quickly discover why this quaint little cafe is one of Oakville’s most beloved bakeries.
Lakeshore Yoga – 297 Lakeshore Road East
If you’ve had a tough week at work, find your zen at this intimate yoga studio, which specializes in the popular Iyengar style of yoga. Owner Zhanna Zeleke shared with us three of her favourite poses for relieving stress and anxiety – downward facing dog, wheel and handstand. Just like these poses, classes are designed for all levels from beginner to advanced. See for yourself – click here to sign up to attend your first class for free!
