Contributed By Kimberly Ezeard. Cranberries is the staple meeting place in Cabbagetown for great food, service and catching up on all the neighbourhood news in a warm, relaxed pub environment that is family friendly.
Whether its brunch on the weekend, Sunday night dinner, date night Sat or Monday night wings and beer, you are guaranteed to meet up with friends and neighbours for the opportunity to visit and discuss all the matters of the day, from gardening tips, and local events to politics and the always popular real estate news!!
Real estate values are a hot topic in a neighbourhood where no two houses are alike and I’m seldom seated longer than it takes to order my beverage than I’m asked about the latest listings…
Cranberries has a wonderfully mixed menu ranging from classic pub foods such as the best wings my nephew has ever eaten, to a spinach and shrimp salad that will make you weep, it is so delicious! Comfort foods to look forward to include burgers with never frozen, hand packed beef, chicken parmesan and perfectly grilled steaks with steamed veggies. Don’t miss the Sticky Toffee Pudding, its ridiculously delicious. There is something for everyone.
There is also a party/dining room/bar called “Room 601” which may be rented for private functions. We have used this room on a number of occasions for gatherings such as Birthday parties and Christmas parties with the neighbours and the service and food was always excellent. Its also perfect because we can all leave the cars at home and walk over so we may enjoy our time and wine without worry
I think it reflects well on Cranberries that the fulltime staff is so friendly and the service is so personalized. It’s good to know you’ll see the familiar faces when you go in. This is a place where you become known by your first name and are made to feel like family.
If you’re in a rush and need take out, no worries, just give a call and they’ll put an order together for you to pick up on the way home just the way you like it.
Cranberries epitomizes, neighbourhood gathering place. Casual, warm and welcoming, the food, service and company are great!!
