If you had wandered through the village of Don Vale in the late 19th century, you would have been struck by all the cabbage growing where front lawns should have been. Many of the Irish immigrants who made their homes in the area replaced their grass lawns with cabbage plants. Times were tough and food was scarce, and the moniker of Cabbagetown has stuck ever since. The boundaries of Cabbagetown are sometimes debated. The common public opinion is that Cabbagetown stretches to Wellesley in the North and Gerrard in the South. Sherbourne marks the Western boundary, and then the neighbourhood runs until the Don River in the East.

Cabbagetown is one of the most historic and well-preserved areas in the Greater Toronto Area. Victorian homes and giant stone churches that are more than 100 years old line the streets. The Cabbagetown Preservation Association works hard to try and maintain the historic character of the neighbourhood. One of its largest accomplishments has been the designation of a large portion of the neighbourhood as a heritage conservation district. The neighbourhood is filled with homages to history. At many houses, there are small blue plaques honouring “heritage heroes” that the city and the neighbourhood wanted to recognize. In addition, the neighbourhood is home to the Toronto Necropolis, one of the oldest cemeteries in the city. It is the resting place of many prominent Canadians, including William Lyon Mackenzie.

This community is home to many of the city’s most successful people. Celebrities, lawyers, financial professionals and regular citizens all call the neighbourhood home. Despite the variety of people who live her, Cabbagetown is still very much a community. Despite having been part of Toronto for more than a century, it still feels in many ways like a stand-alone village. Businesses in the area are mostly small and locally owned, and walking down the side streets of Cabbagetown feels like walking through Toronto, Ontario from a century ago, rather than the 21st century metropolis it has become. Touches like the Riverdale Farm, a working farm in the heart of a modern city, truly make the neighbourhood feel displaced in time.

Entertainment, Restaurants, Cafes

For people who love food, Cabbagetown has a lot to offer. Small, local restaurants and shops line the main commercial corridors of Carlton and Parliament. The Scullery is a tiny coffee shop with a reputation big enough to reach the entire city. If you’re after fine dining, Peartree Restaurant or F’Amelia provide a more upscale dining experience. Cabbagetown also caters to those who like to cook at home. Fine ingredient and local grocery stores can be found here to provide an alternative to grocery store chains. Daniel et Daniel provides fine food ingredients and prepared foods. Lennie’s Whole Foods is a grocery store that focuses on health food products. If you love craft beer, try Stout Irish Pub. Their extensive tap line is dedicated completely to craft beer. Stout is home to one of the best beer menus in the city, and is easier to get into than some of the busier downtown beer hotspots. If scotch is your drink, the House on Parliament has a great scotch selection (and their beer list is pretty great as well). If you want some entertainment with your pub, try the Flying Beaver Pubaret, which offers a wide variety of cabaret style entertainment. Theatre is also often happening at the Winchester Street Theatre. In addition, many of the local dance schools also host performances.
