I'd appreciate some advice on a great brunch/lunch spot for a Thursday in Mid-may. Looking for both great food and a cool neighbourhood that we can stroll around in after our meal and do some shopping. Since there is such an abundance of good restaurants, I thought it would make more sense to narrow it down to a neighbourhood then decide from there... .
For the neighbourhood, we like independent (dare I say "hipster") boutique clothing shops, cafes, etc.. I hope that helps and I appreciate your advice.
