Beloved Riverdale hangout Rooster Coffee House has a second location

The east-end neighbourhood café cherished for its Loïc Gourmet sandwiches, goodies from Café Jules Patisserie and Pilot Coffee Roasters (formerly Te Aro) espresso opened a second shop on King Street East near Parliament Avenue yesterday. The new spot is using the same Pilot espresso beans as the original location, but serving sandwiches and salads from Cinq catering. George Brown students and Corktown condo-dwellers are clearly excited: by 10 a.m. there already appeared to be line-ups stretching around the block.

    Thank you so much for the mention! We have to giggle at this “sight gag photo”. TOJam was hosting a three day gaming convention the weekend we opened…we did keep this group highly caffeinated, but if you look closely they are lined up for George Brown ;) we could only wish for such a turn out! P.S..don’t tell our parents..they sleep better at night thinking business is this good!
