Cabbagetown according to … Annette Robertson

Annette Robertson and her family live near Sackville-Amelia.

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.
