Ossington Avenue really comes alive on a beautiful summer evening, with packed patios and people strolling along the streets. One of the highlights of this vibrant scene is the collection of murals on the buildings.
Alongside Boehmer is the original cover of Anthony Bourdain’s Kitchen Confidential.
These stunning artworks effortlessly blend with the urban landscape, providing a visually captivating experience as you pass by.
Jimmy’s Coffee has a huge stretch of mural along the side of the building with a lot of Jimmys. That’s Jimi Hendrix, and here are a few more…
Jimmy Page, Jimmy Carter, James Dean, Jim Henson, and James Irwin.
Tucked into a corner next to the terrific consignment shop I Miss You Vintage, you’ll find a charming piece of artwork that beautifully complements the shop’s aesthetic.
A great time to roam Ossington without having to worry about cars is coming up on Saturday, July 22nd when OssFest takes place. The streets of Ossington Avenue, from Dundas Street West to Queen Street West, will be pedestrian only and will feature live music, drag performances, patios, shopping, dancing, food… all the great stuff that makes Ossington one of my favourite streets in the city.
Ossington Avenue runs through the neighbourhoods of West Queen West and Trinity Bellwoods in Toronto.
