Welcome to A&Z Gourmet Burgers

We would like to offer a Cabbagetown welcome to a new restaurant in the neighbourhood – A&Z Gourmet Burgers located at 568 Parliament St.

We had previously believed that a Lick’s Burger was coming to this location, but we have already had diners write in to sing A&Z’s praises.

Crime alert: Break-in on Nasmith Avenue

We have received a report of a house break-in on Nasmith Avenue during the afternoon today. The residents found that someone had broken a kitchen window at the rear of the house, but once the intruder(s) opened the back door a house alarm was triggered and the residents think that this scared the burglar(s) away. Nobody was home at the time and nothing appears to have been taken, but a black leather jacket was found near the broken window.

Police were notified and have taken statements from the residents.


If you have any information about this or any other matter of similar concern – call Toronto Police. Also, be sure to report crimes of any severity or value to the police as they monitor these reports and assign resources accordingly. If you would like to let fellow residents know also, please contact us and let us know what you would be comfortable with us sharing.

Forsythia Festival 2017 – a great day without rain or snow!

The 46th Annual Forsythia Festival held on Sunday May 7 2017 was a truly wonderful day of yellowness, fun and smiles! We are grateful that the threat of rain and snow (gulp!) didn’t deter anyone from showing up for the parade and park activities and that the sun came out during the day to remind us that spring had arrived! We counted over 620 attendees including 116 people who volunteered their time during the day – thank you so much to our wonderful volunteers!

Our special thanks to those businesses and organizations that donated money, prizes and their time to make the festival possible! Please thank them when you see them in the neighbourhood!
