It's one of the most beautifully decorated places in the city. It's away from the tourist fray in the East End, but if you're lucky to have your cuppa here, you'll be rewarded with a sweeping view of the skyline from Riverdale Park.
This is a neighborhood place where writers, artists, and other locals come to hang out. The owners and staff are, quite simply, so lovely and loyal to their clientele—plus, they make some mean coffee!
Bring a book and cozy up for the afternoon.
Also, there are quite a few star sightings here. Daniel Radcliffe filmed here in the summer. Bon Iver and Jim Cuddy have been known to come by the shop.
(Note: Rooster just opened their second location on King street, just east of Sherbourne near the Distillery District.)
