About
Sleep in late at your student housing, then take the scenic route through waterfront Eau Claire Park to quaint brunch spot 1886 Buffalo Café. Soak up 100 years of history whilst enjoying your huevos rancheros and hash browns, before crossing the river to Prince’s Island. In summer, spend the day canoeing on the river or picnicking with friends amidst the park’s colourful borders, and in winter, don your skates and hit the iced-over lagoon. In the evening, make your way to eclectic arts space Broken City. Expect comedy shows, live music, pub quizzes and an excellent craft beer selection.
