The popular Ossington strip is home to some of the best shops and restaurants in the city. Our OZ location was originally located at the intersection of Queen & Ossington from 2014-2016 before the developers who bought the building evicted us to make room for an international tenant.

After a few years we're happy to be back, and secure a new space a few blocks north, in collaboration with the restaurant Favorites Thai BBQ, located behind the cafe.

The Oz shop seats many on a large U shaped bench around the perimeter of the room, and showcases the industrial steel build-out all SJCB stores are known for. Outside are 2 sidewalk benches for you to enjoy a coffee and action on the busy strip.              

This location features a large mesh cage floating from the ceiling, reflecting the bar below like a set of teeth, with original artwork on the wall by artists Jeremy Jansen, and Ken Johnson.

Locally made pastry by Blackbird Baking Co. available daily, as well as a complete menu of hot & cold drinks made with our own coffee, roasted in Toronto.
