Fodor's Expert Review Birks
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
The Canadian equivalent of Tiffany's (with its own version of the iconic blue box) has been selling diamond engagement rings, exquisite jewelry, and fine crystal since 1879. It now has a "design your own wedding band" counter in addition to more affordable jewelry lines. Even if diamonds aren't on your shopping list, it's still worth a visit to the elegant Birks Café, run by the celebrated chef Jérôme Ferrer. Light lunch and afternoon tea is served daily, along with brunch on weekends.
