Best place in Cabbagetown for a bite to eat … It’s a toss-up between the House on Parliament and Kingyo, depending on what we’re in the mood for.
Cabbagetown needs … More small businesses on Parliament Street. I love the ones that are already there, but more variety would be great!
Favourite block … The dead end on Wellesley Street East. It’s nice and quiet, low on traffic and the park and splash pad are right there!
Best public space … Riverdale Farm. Living so close to a farm in the city has provided endless hours of amusement for our kids, and I love the wonderful programs and events they offer. It’s such a special spot and we are so lucky to live down the road from it.
Favourite store … St Jamestown Steak and Chops. Everything is fantastic and Mark and his staff are so friendly and helpful.
Cabbagetown pet peeve … Dog poop on the sidewalk. It seems so simple for this not to be the case, yet, it continues…
Cabbagetown’s best kept secret … All the laneways. They are home to so many interesting hidden houses.
Best reason to join the Cabbagetown Residents Association (CRA) … To stay informed about all the great things happening in cabbagetown and to get involved.
