Our shop in Summerhill is where it all began.

Since we took over the two-storey Victorian home in 2014, we’ve seen our neighbourhood grow and evolve, and we’re so happy to be a part of it.

The shop has something for everyone: a main bar with an energetic hum, a re-modeled upstairs cafe for those looking to hide away in a quiet place, and an expansive back patio for a beer on a summer night. Not to mention the magical window from which fresh slices of Yeah Yeah’s pizza appear.

The space was a former dry-cleaners (whose sign still shows up in the fog on our front window on cold days).

We like it better now.


Boxcar Riverside is proud to offer—in addition to our multi-roaster cafe model and our rotating beer, wine and whiskey lists—a selection of pastries from Blackbird Baking Co.

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