Coming soon to Dundas West, The Dundas General is a new cafe and retail concept slated to open this April.
Occupying a unit at the base of a low-rise condo in the heart of Little Portugal, the 2,000 square feet space will house an eclectic range of seasonal produce, food products, a cafe, patio, kitchen gadgets, and home accents as well as various lifestyle accessories for women and men.
Proprietor Michael Ghent shared in a phone call with Daily Hive that the landlord had been holding out for a community-oriented, indie operation and had already turned down inquiries from big chains.
Construction is already underway and while it’s still premature to discuss what the cafe or retail offerings might look like, Ghent is investigating products from Ontario and Quebec noting that in this neighbourhood, “European specialty stuff is kind of covered.”
Address: 1243 Dundas Street West, Toronto
