The Temperance Street location, in the heart of Toronto's Financial District, was a long time in the making.

Tucked away in a quiet alley, this location is built to be an oasis of calm among the chaos of Bay street. Boxcar Temperance has everything you expect from a Boxcar, and more.

With over one-hundred unique whiskey expressions, our largest and most ambitious rotating wine list, fifteen local craft beers on tap, and our familiarly particular focus on our coffee program, the Temperance street location aims to rethink what the finance district can be.


Boxcar Temperance 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. and Butternut Baking Co. This location also offers full lunch and dinner menus.
