Been There, Drank That

July 2017 - Toronto ON

I discovered Jimmy's Coffee Shop has six locations around Toronto and so far I have discovered that at least two have murals with images of Jimmy's. There is also a mural on the side of the Queen St. West location but I haven't figured a Jimmy connection.

From Jimmy's website:
Jimmy's Coffee first opened its doors on December 10th, 2009. The idea came to life thanks to serial entrepreneur, Phil Morrison. Phil? You mean his name isn't Jimmy? Then who is Jimmy? The elusive Jimmy doesn’t exist as a singular person—we love all Jimmies! James Dean, Jimmy Hoffa, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Carter, Jim Morrison, Jimmy Durante, your friend Jimmy, my friend Jimmy, or maybe even your dad Jimmy.

Jimmy’s Coffee on Gerrard St. West has plenty of studying space, spread over three floors. Tip! The third floor doubles as a boardroom rental space). For all you dog owners, don’t forget about the shop’s walk-up window in the back, so you don’t have to leave your pup outside alone!


So I now have a mission to visit all six shops.

We stopped into their third location on Gerrard St. last week.
