BOB Coffee Bar

In what seems like an overnight transformation, the southwest corner of Davenport and Christie, has morphed from a local variety store, to what is now a neighbourhood favourite for hot and cold coffee beverages. BOB Coffee Bar has quickly touched the hearts and taste buds of Davenport Village and Hillcrest residents alike.  And more recently, these same residents have frequented this chic coffee bar for a late afternoon or evening alcoholic beverage, with its acquisition of a liquor license to serve beer and wine.

BOB’s, as it is more commonly referred to, is located at the eastern end of Davenport Village. Another indie establishment, The Sovereign, commands the west side of the Village.  BOB is a welcome addition to a neighbourhood that seems to consistently present pleasant surprises to the gentrifying residential area below the Davenport escarpment.  We continue to see smaller coffee shops and take-out restaurants popping up along the Davenport stretch and we will surely enjoy more culinary additions, as young families are purchasing starter and step-up homes in this fabulous central Toronto neighbourhood. Davenport Village is one of my top neighbourhoods to watch in midtown Toronto.

As is stated on the wall at BOB’s, “In Bob We Trust” — and trust we do, as BOB has brought us superb coffee and a great spot to work, or to meet and chat with friends.  The atmosphere is casual, relaxed and fun.  The staff are happy, helpful and love chatting with neighbourhood residents. I tend to stick to my usual americano or latte, however, the specialty “treat” drinks like the Bad Ass Hot Cocoa, a well-proportioned mix of milk, cocoa, freshly shaved cinnamon and nutmeg, topped off with a few marshmallows. It is sure to bring you back – over and over again. Petite Thuet and Dufflet supply wonderful desserts that are delicious, and perfect for a #foodiegram. You will also find several great sandwich options, if you are looking for a quick bite. Be sure to stop in at BOB’s and enjoy the great coffee and atmosphere.

Time to hit the road – meeting some clients for a couple of Sunday afternoon showings.
