Dotted with character homes, coffee shops, delis and cheap grocers, "The Drive" is now a colourful, richly diverse street experience. Originally, the street was most famous as "Little Italy." It now supports every sort of ethnic shop and restaurant, including Jamaican patty shops, Ethiopian restaurants, Spanish tapas bars, Portuguese coffee shops, Indian clothiers, organic food stores, Chinese grocers, Moroccan falafels, Italian furniture, French bakeries and Cuban cafes. It also hosts annual events such as the Fringe Festival, the Parade of Lost Souls and other street parties throughout the year.
