The iconic Blue Farm Café owned by local farmer Joe (played by Raymond Ablack) is El Camino, aka The El, located at 74 King Street West.

This is a Spanish restaurant, so we are not sure if you will find the outrageous hummus on its menu.

Where is Bankler Elementary School filmed? It looks quite similar to my school, but I’m unsure.

The elementary school (inside) looks like Kensington Community School on College Street in Toronto.

Would you happen to know which apartment building is Zions “bachelor” pad?

It is sad to say that I do the same thing as Ginny. The reason she's in therapy, but it's also sad to say that I would date Marcus Baker.
