Tell me more about your operation

They work in small batches to guarantee quality for both their coffees and their baked goods. Rotating through various top­notch roasters, one of their favourite offerings are the beans from Cafe Grumpy. If that name rings a bell it’s likely because Cafe Grumpy has become hugely popular by being the cafe that Lena Dunham’s character works at in the hit TV show Girls.

 

Favorite product or menu item?

Pair that fantastic coffee with a freshly baked croissant and you’ve got Mike’s favourite breakfast at the shop.

 

How long have you been in business?

Previously running a popular cafe in Newmarket, Owners Mike Tasso and Olyana Zhuk know how to do coffee right. They relocated their cafe to Cabbagetown, opening at the end of January 2013 . What inspired you to open shop in Cabbagetown? A personal connection brought them to the neighbourhood. When the owners of 540 Parliament mentioned the space was available they seized the opportunity. No strangers to Cabbagetown, they have long admired the success story of one of Toronto’s first indie coffee haunts, Jet Fuel. With a long time following of die hard fans, Jet Fuel’s history is one of the most interesting independent coffee stories there is. Knowing how fiercely the neighbourhood supports local business, Mike and Olyana knew they’d feel right at home here.  What is your favourite part of the community? Cabbagetowners openness to independent business. What’s your favorite neighbourhood story?
