Subway Harbord

Subway Opening on Harbord St.

It may not be in the same league as Starbucks opening in Kensington, but the sight of a Subway taking over the old Bake Shop location on Harbord is a bit of a let down.

I guess I always thought there was some unwritten rule that Bloor street was where all the fast food chains congregated and sleepy Harbord was left for the plucky indies like Mama B's, Pizza Gigi, Harbord Fish & Chips and Flip Toss and Thai Kitchen. In fact, in the past year the stretch on Harbord between Spadina and Bathurst has been tracking more upscale if anything. We've seen the arrival of the Harbord Room, Tati Bistro and Loire clustered in a block that already draws foodies for Splendido, Messis and 93 Harbord.

But I guess Subway couldn't resist. With hungry students flocking from Central Tech each lunch hour someone had to cater to the overflow from Mama B's next door.
