The Riverside location is our second shop, tucked away on Boulton Avenue in Toronto's east-end.

During the day the sun floods in through the cafe windows, filling the twenty-feet between the floor and ceiling with natural light. At night, the cozy-industrial bar is the perfect reprieve from the bustling Queen Street strip.

We’re thrilled to have reintroduced this remarkable space—once a library, and then a furniture store—to this vibrant neighbourhood.


Boxcar Riverside is proud operate a diverse multi-roaster cafe, highlighting the best roasters from around the globe. We offer pastries and snacks from Blackbird Bakery and a selection of local bakeries throughout the day.

For libations, we offer a curated selection of world-class natural wines, craft beer, and whiskies, available to enjoy on-site or for retail sale.

House-made snacks such as chips, pickled items, and charcuterie, are available in the evenings and with bottle shop purchases.
