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 Summerhill 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. and Almond Butterfly. This location also offers snacks for dinner and sandwiches beginning Tuesday, December 3, 2019.
