It has emerged as one of the city's main shopping and dining districts, although it does not have the flamboyance of neighboring Osborne Village. Home decor, women's fashions, jewelry, antiques or vintage apparel, name it and you will find it here. Corydon is also known for trendy hair and nail salons, art galleries, craft stores and gourmet food shops. Corydon Avenue was once called Little Italy and it lives up to the promise with numerous espresso bars and geltao parlors.
