Best place in Cabbagetown for a bite to eat… Hey Lucy! Kids eat free on Tuesdays and the food is as delicious for grown-ups as it is for children.
Cabbagetown needs … a fish monger.
Favourite block … Metcalfe, between Carlton and Winchester. The old brick between the sidewalk and street, mature trees, and majestic Victorians always take my breath away.
Best public space … The Necropolis, for its history and paths that double as a safe place for children to cycle/scooter.
Favourite store … Labour of Love. My husband has gotten me a piece of jewelry by local artists there every year they’ve been in business.
Cabbagetown pet peeve … The neighbourhood’s inability to keep its restaurants in business. We’ve seen too many close in the 17-odd years we’ve been here.
Cabbagetown’s best kept secret … All the laneways and side streets that boast the same calibre of architectural gems as our signature streets.
Best reason to join the Cabbagetown Residents Association (CRA) … To give a voice to the variety of issues facing our community, from safety to quality of life.
