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 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.
