Cabbagetown According To … Margaret McGann

Margaret McGann is a CRA volunteer for the Forsythia Festival and has sat on the nominating committee for new board directors.


Best place in Cabbagetown for a bite to eat: This is a hard choice as there are many great restaurants in Cabbagetown. Friends of mine from the Beaches, Riverdale, Leaside, East York and Etobicoke that I have introduced to Cranberries love it and keep coming back for the great food and wonderful staff.  

Cabbagetown needs: more retail stores. While Cabbagetown has some wonderful shops I would like more to make our neighbourhood even more vibrant. 

Favourite block: definitely the Wellesley Cottages. They are a pleasant surprise in the midst of the city.

Best public space: Riverdale Farm. Where else in Toronto can we enjoy welcoming spring with the birth of baby lambs, piglets and chickens?

Favourite store: London Calling on Carlton for their English chocolate bars and toffee. 

Cabbagetown pet peeve: I don’t really have a Cabbagetown pet peeve although if I thought about it deciphering the different times for legal parking for my guests has been challenging.

Cabbagetown’s best kept secret: The Necropolis chapel and cemetery. It is my favourite spot for a walk and to absorb some Toronto history. 

Best reason to join the Cabbagetown Residents Association (CRA): to keep up with what is happening in our neighbourhood. CRA provides a long list of services from liaising with the City on everything from suggesting improvements to resident complaints.
