Boxcar Social, an upscale cafe-bar hybrid with roots in the Summerhill neighbourhood, quietly opened the doors to its second location in Riverside this week.
With a menu currently limited to coffee, the plan is to roll out a full offering along with a grand opening next week. With that will come a curated, rotating list of coffees from roasters across North America, a selection of some of the world’s top new-world wines, and interesting craft beers, scotches and bourbons.
Minimal and airy, Boxcar Social's renovated space — tucked around the corner on Boulton, just off Queen — is stunning from its raw floors to the soaring ceiling. Definitely worthy of a check-out, the location has already attracted a local following and was buzzing on Wednesday afternoon.
Keep on the lookout for a full review to come.
Boxcar Social is now open at 4 Boulton Ave (at Queen St. E). Check out their site for more info.
