The Communist’s Daughter
A small chalkboard with the bar’s name scrawled on it is the only indication of the existence of this irresistible neighbourhood joint—the sign overhead belonging to a long-closed Portuguese snack bar. Inside, there’s an easygoing atmosphere and a retro-kitsch vibe—with vinyl chairs, Formica tables, an old lunch counter and a fantastic jukebox (it plays three tunes for a loonie). Wander in for live gypsy jazz on Saturdays and country troubadour music on Sundays.
