Kensington is one of the most interesting places to spend a number of hours. There are sooo many unique shops to stroll through, whether looking to buy or just like to see neat stuff. The are so many wonderful eateries and restaurants that you are sure to find some place traditional or out of the ordinary to sit and enjoy a beautiful afternoon people watching and just enjoying the surroundings. Parking isn't fun to find, but truly worth it. Don't plan on just a quick stop as you will truly miss the essence that Kensington has to offer.

I found this place by accident and I loved it. Not too far from downtown it’s a perfect neighborhood to walk around. Plenty of small shops, coffees and restaurants. It is very different from downtown, worth visiting.

This is a wonderful neighbourhood to explore. It is filled with lots of cute cafes, restaurants and shops. It is also located right next to the river, so you can grab coffee and then walk along the river.

Visited Original Joes on a Sunny September day for lunch. Walked through Kensington but it was the Labour Day holiday and not much was open. Also a lot of construction. Feel I would need to revisit during business hours to rate properly.
