Best place in Cabbagetown for a bite to eat…
I love eating at home. It’s low stress with little kids and nothing beats a nice BBQ with Steak & Chops meat.

Cabbagetown needs…
A gym. I don’t think it needs to be something big, but it would be nice to have a place with all the basic machines and weights.

Favourite block…
Geneva Avenue. It’s not only because we live there. I love the fact that it functions as a dead end street with virtually no through traffic. It’s pretty safe for kids, there’s usually a parking spot, and we’re close enough to the sledding hill that our hot chocolate stays warm.

Best public space…
The field at the bottom of Riverdale Park West after a snow fall – gorgeous and expansive.

Favourite store…
I love Home Hardware, but to add variety to this post I think another great place is Jay’s Garden on Gerrard at Sackville. It’s a great low-key garden centre with decent prices and great selection (especially around the holidays).

Cabbagetown pet peeve…
The dumpster behind NoFrills.

Cabbagetown’s best kept secret…
Ronica’s Divan. I haven’t been, but my wife was there for a dinner with a group of women from our street recently and loved it. It’s a woman named Ronica who lives on Sackville organizes a great Indian dinners at her house.

Best reason to join the Cabbagetown Residents Association (CRA)…
To get plugged into the community.
