Note: Please take common sense precautions when using street or underground parking. Don’t leave anything valuable in your car, and don’t leave any tempting items in full view.
1) Street parking: wherever you can find it. Buy tickets from the meters placed along the street. Warning: Parking police are extremely vigilant. If you go past your allotted time, your vehicle will almost certainly be ticketed… and it’s expensive!
2) The “Blue P” parking lot, underground: The lot is accessible via a small laneway on the west side of Church, just south of Wellesley. You’ll see the big “Blue P” sign on the street, as you pass the “Ginger” restaurant. Prices vary, according to time of day and day of week, but last time we checked, evenings were $7, and Sunday afternoons $10.00.
Fabarnak Restaurant: fabulously delicious food. This restaurant is in the 519 building — very convenient! Relatively inexpensive. Not licensed. Fairly slow service, though, so allow enough time. Cafe by Creperie: just south of the 519, on east side. Cheap and cheerful. Fairly small. Ginger Restaurant: southwest corner of Church and Wellesley. Cheap and cheerful. Lots of seating. Very fast.
