We stayed in a nice unit at 582 Parliament St. and were there during the two-day street festival. The area shows little sign of its former Irish inhabitants as it has transitioned to mostly middle eastern residents. Easy access to public transportation by bus, rail...More
I was there with a group of photographers. It was a nice old neighbourhood with residential buildings. A little rough in places. The festival itself had an arts and crafts fair in a local park, and the Main Street was closed off for street entertainment.
It's such a unique neighborhood , well preserved with such charming houses so well kept and so many are totally authentic by their architecture of the period they represent, the earlier days of Toronto; Best protected by its Association too. Well, a wonderful end of...More
Cabbagetown is a charming, peaceful and historic neighbourhood that is great for walking around. The quiet residential streets were lined with gorgeous old brick character houses from the Victorian era with large mature trees on both sides. I enjoyed simply wandering the area and checking...More
Well I tell you What, I have not been bored during my stay. Since being in the area I have witnessed multiple drug deals, been offered stolen merchandise and been harassed by more homeless meth heads then I thought possible. Despite all that it can...More
The Irish immigrated here to escape the potato famine but had little to eat after they arrived. They used the small areas in the front of these houses and planted cabbage. Thus the name Cabbagetown. Full of lovely Victorian homes. Walk the streets and enjoy...More
Though not the most attractive or eclectic neighbourhood in Toronto, this is maybe the most attractive and eclectic that is close to the central sites and yet not overrun by tourists. There are abundant coffee shops and places to eat, but the best way to...More
I was expecting it to be a bit more folksy but nevertheless, it's a great place to walk around to get away from the crowds. Some great photo opportunities and quite a full morning if you take in the Necropolis and Allan Gardens.
My partner and i were exploring the area and bumped into the festival. The roads were closed to many many stalls. There were live bands on every intersection, people on stilts and lots of fun for everyone. We also visited a lot of the stores...More
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
Hello, We are a small group of 20-25 classmates from Europe and the US. We plan to meet in Toronto in early fall for some get together and sightseeing and wish to rent a house downtown for 6-10 people as a place to hang out in the evening for a week. The rest of us will stay in bed and breakfasts in the neighborhood, if possible. I have done some research on a number of vacation rentals websites but have not come up with anything suitable. In fact, it seems that there are not many...More

I remember a place in the annex (Bloor W area) called the Coach House, where you can rent the entire house. Give them a try, that area is great, lots more places to eat and hang out than Cabbagetown.

Hi, Generally, there are lots of restaurants & a few bars on Parliament Street which is the main commercial street of the neighbourhood, and access to the Carlton streetcar which runs to the subway is good. It's not uncommon, though, for real estate people to use the term Cabbagetown for areas that are a little further afield, so it would be helpful to know the street of the rental apartment before commenting in any further detail about the local amenities.

My knowledge of this area of T.O. is poor. Can you recommend a restaurant with entrees around $20?
