Cabbagetown according to … Kate Steinmann

Kate was elected to the board of directors for the CRA in June 2018.

Best place in Cabbagetown for a bite to eat: It’s a toss-up among Kanpai Snack Bar, Sukho Thai, House on Parliament, and Salt and Tobacco—there are just too many great places to choose from! I also love Jet Fuel for the coffee and the great neighbourhood vibe. 

Cabbagetown needs: A branch of Tabule, an amazing Toronto Middle Eastern restaurant.

Favourite block: The Wellesley Cottages, a tidy row of Victorian workers’ cottages tucked away north of Wellesley St. E.

Best public space: The Necropolis, a very old Toronto cemetery with picturesque topography featuring winding paths and a wonderful array of flora, fauna, and stones (and, at the gate, beautiful Victorian Gothic buildings).

Favourite store: Epicure

Cabbagetown pet peeve: The Parliament bus is ridiculously undependable — often there’s no bus for 20 to 30 minutes at a time during evening rush hour, even in light traffic.

Cabbagetown’s best kept secret: The Children’s Book Bank, hands down—not to be missed if you have young children!

Best reason to join the Cabbagetown Residents Association (CRA): Stay up to date on what’s happening, get to know your neighbours, support local initiatives, and make your voice heard!

Hi Miss Steinmann,

My name is Vennie and I am a journalism student from Centennial College. Recently, I am writing a pre-election story for Tor-Cen riding for the Toronto Observer. I am also in contact with Brian Chang from the NDP which he shares his points of views about housing issues and safety issues in Cabbagetown. Therefore, I am hoping to have a short interview with you and asks about your opinion of how the political party can help make Cabbagetown a better place.

The story for the Toronto Observer will be published on the 20th of October before the election date, I am hoping to include your voice in the story. If you are interested, please feel free to contact me at 647-781-6318 or by email

Thank you so much. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best regards,
Vennie Choi
