Cherry Espresso Bar, across from the playground, can be found steaming and pouring inside the confines of Engine 37 seven days a week. Uptown’s old and abandoned 1910 craftsman Firehouse, built by notable city architect E. A. Christy, has found new life. The feedback from neighbours is good. Continue reading »
