Shop Local | Our Favourite Uptown Waterloo Businesses

uptown waterloo

Uptown Waterloo has been going through a transformation with the installation of the LRT.  Now, more than ever, it’s a great idea to support local businesses in Kitchener-Waterloo. Here are some of our favourite businesses in Uptown Waterloo.

Sablétine Fine Pastries

203 King St. S, Waterloo
Sabéline is a local French pastry shop. The food is delicious. You have to go in for their quiche of the day (we had a great one with caramelized onions and other goodies), with a great salad. It’s very fresh and the prices are great. We highly recommend it for lunch or picking up some yummy pastries.


181 Park St., Waterloo

There’s no better place to pick up a gift. Gifted has the cutest and most unique selection of home accents, jewellery and more. Sick of showing up at a birthday with the same card as other guests? Grab one from gifted. They have so many fun (and local) products.

The Truth Beauty Company

46 King Street North, Waterloo (Lower Level)

Visit The Truth Beauty Company in the lower level of the Princess Twin Cinema. You’ll find so many great beauty products without harmful chemicals or toxins. Pick up some great health and beauty products for gifts (and a few things for yourself!).

The Waters Spa

75 King St. S. (Willis Way), Waterloo

Nestled right in Uptown is a relaxing urban spa retreat. It’s a super convenient location with great services and friendly staff. Go for an amazing massage. It’s also great for spa parties with the girls!

Mark Nunes

191 King St S. Suite 107, Waterloo

Mark Nunes is a clothier and tailer located under the Bauer Lofts. It’s a great spot for quality garments and stellar service.


150 Caroline St. S, Waterloo

If you haven’t been, you’re missing out on fine, fresh foods. Vincenzo’s has an amazing selection of gourmet foods, ready-made dishes and so so so much more. It’s great if you’re looking for something specific, or just want to browse around and let your culinary senses be inspired.
