I have been a fan of Boxcar Social (@boxcar_social) 1st and 2nd location (post here & here) of the cafe-bar hybird concept and so of course I was excited to hear that they opened up a 3rd location at Harbourfront Centre. It was the best yet with it's prime location next with a lakeside view, perfect for people watching and maybe after a walk through the free art installations at The Power Plant (@ThePowerPlantTO) next door.
It has the same concept as the 2 other locations with a rotating hard to find coffee roast, a great affordable local and international wine list per glass or bottle (may I add, what a generous pour), around 20 Craft Beer on tap and a great selection of Whisky.
Love the huge space with natural lighting coming through, I just can imagine so many private events being hosted here. Not only was the interior amazing and spacious but the patio was so perfect, facing the lake and he CN Tower as it's backdrop.
Didn't order coffee since we already had one before then, so we decided to get some Alcohol instead (^_<) We had the Blood Brothers (@BloodBrothersTO) Brute Summer Saison, love the grape foward smell and taste with slight taste of mango and peaches which was so perfect for summer on the patio. It was so good that we had to go to the brewery the next day to grab a few bottles before it's gone.
Love the details that the owner put into the space and that include the washroom!
Love this location!
Would come here often if not for the expensive and packed packing around the area.
Perfect for people watching as the sun sets.
