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!
