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 to offer—in addition to our multi-roaster cafe model and our rotating beer, wine and whiskey lists—pastries from Blackbird Baking Co., Butternut Baking Co., Sweet Hart Kitchen and White Lily Diner. House-made sandwiches, soups and salads are also offered throughout the day, and charcuterie and cheese boards are available in the evening.
