Cabbagetown street sign


Since the 1970s Cabbagetown has experienced a cultural and economic explosion, becoming one of the city’s most gentrified quarters. Replete with Victorian architecture, and even a city-farm, visitors can take a walking tour of the neighbourhood and also stop in at their pick of cafés, pubs and restaurants that range from South Asian to Japanese to Italian.

Don’t miss:

  • Glass-domed Edwardian greenhouses filled with plants from around the world at the Allan Gardens Conservatory 
  • Riverdale Farm: walk this working city-farm and see goats, cows and various livestock
  • Going antiquing at vintage design stores Sourced & Salvaged, Spruce and Green’s Antiques
  • Seeing a performance (or booking an online workshop) at the Toronto Dance Theatre
  • Kingyo Izakaya for mouth-watering wagyu beef cooked on a hot stone BBQ

BOUNDARIES: Area roughly bounded by Sherbourne Street and the Don River Valley, and Gerrard and Wellesley streets. Main intersection: Parliament and Carlton.

PUBLIC TRANSIT (TTC): College subway station, then take the 506 streetcar eastbound.
