Thank you so much for this lovely review. Did you know we're looking to expand to a fourth block in 2019? Hopefully you can be a part of that story too :)

We love Mast General! Fun fact: They're a sponsor of the 2018 Gervais Street Bridge Dinner (and an awesome neighbour)! Thanks for swinging by and checking us out. It's great for dog-lovers, families, day-dates, the art-lovers, and the culturally-curious...just to name a few. See you...More

Soda City Market is mostly food, some crafts, some street entertainment and a few vendors for meats and produce. It’s a nice size and easy to navigate. We liked the Indian Samosas and the Columbian Arepas. My favorite was the Avocado Toast. You get a...More

Such a good value! Did you know Avocado Toast has since expanded to locations in California too? Thank you for stopping by and we'll share this with them.

A lovely reminder! Great note about the "famously hot" weather too. It does make us feel a little better knowing even places like Michigan and New York City are in the upper 90s right now. Thanks for still coming out to enjoy and support.
