Tucked beside the Fairbanks Centre is Lockside Café. It’s a great place to grab a coffee, sit on the patio and enjoy the sun before or after a walk in the park. I spoke to Cameron and Elizabeth, the canteen’s workers about their experiences there.
Many families, dog walkers and even the occasional runner/biker stop in to enjoy a treat from the cafe. Their favourite thing about working at Lockside is the fact they get to work outside in the park.
The last thing I asked was, in their expert experience, when is the best time for ice cream? Elizabeth thinks anytime in the afternoon, Cameron says 2:30pm. But I think anytime is a good time for ice cream. The café hours are posted online at http://shubiecanal.ca/lockside-cafe/.
