Cabbagetown is an historic neighbourhood located in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is rich in culture and history, with some 19th century buildings, most notably churches. A large proportion of the homes in the area are original structures, and residents tend to favour maintaining the original architectural flavour.

Cabbagetown is supposedly named after poor immigrants from the late nineteenth century who could only afford to eat the cabbage they grew themselves. Its original boundaries were Gerrard Street to the north, Queen Street to the south, Parliament Street to the east and the Don Valley Parkway to the west. The core of the area has since shifted north of those boundaries, and refers the area as far north as Wellesley Street.
