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.”

“Upscale pub grub that isn't too hipstery, good beer, friendly service, and a brunch to die for. It's a local institution at this point and isn't too far a walk if the weather is behaving. Check them out if you're around on a Sunday; they make proper roast dinners that would make my Irish mother proud.”
