Where Would You Rather Live? Cabbagetown or Parkdale?

TheRedPin Team Canada 1 Comment

Beautiful, old looming trees, quiet streets, majestic Victorian Homes – Cabbagetown and Parkdale both are known for these charming neighbourhood features. One lies to the east of downtown – the other – to the west. The question is, where would you rather live?

Originally one of Toronto’s poorest neighbourhoods, this neighbourhood is now a highly sought after enclave with gorgeous homes, tons of boutique shopping options, friendly pubs and innovative restaurants and cafes that get outstanding reviews. Jet Fuel is one of the neighbourhood’s most well-known coffee joints, while House on Parliament is a fantastic pub where you can tell the chef puts an extra effort into each dish. Riverdale Park is an ideal place for a stroll or a picnic, and home to the Riverdale Farmer’s Market (one of the city’s best) offering up local goods from May through October. And of course, there’s Riverdale Farm, the only place in the city where you can experience the rural life just minutes away from bustling Toronto life.

Also a previously impoverished neighbourhood, Parkdale is now a thriving neighbourhood of reinvention. Similar to Cabbagetown, gorgeous, majestic Victorian homes lines the streets with age-old trees on their front lawns. Smaller Tibetan, North African and West Indian enclaves are found here, in addition to some of the city’s best vintage furniture, fashion and fabric stores. New bars and hopping night spots like Wrongbar contrast the funky pubs like Cadillac Lounge (great summer patio) and Rhino.
