Farm
“On the site of the Riverdale Zoo, where from 1888 to 1974 prairie wolves howled at night and spooked the Cabbagetown kids, Riverdale Farm is a downtown rural oasis. Now a working farm and museum, it has two barns, a summer wading pool, and pens of feathered and furry friends. Kids follow the farmers around as they do their daily chores, including milking goats and collecting eggs. Visitors can learn about a particular animal during the daily 'Farmer Demo' at 11:30am. From June to October there's also a Tuesday farmers market from 3pm to 7pm.”

“25 Minute walk. Great brunch! A bit pricey, but the food is good. There's always a line at this place and they don't take reservations, so definitely go before 10am if you can, and be ready to wait outside in the cold if you go after 10am (even if you go before sometimes). Their side waffle is V yummy! ”

Ice Cream Shop

“Amazing home made ice cream, gelato and frozen yoghurt. They make season flavours that are fantastic, I wait all year for their fall pumpkin icecream, doubled with the sweet cream flavour. Delicious. The staff is super friendly and patient with the hordes that come in. Small space to eat inside, a couple of benches outside or you can sit in the park nearby or wander the interesting street.”
