Coffee’s still on, but you may have to line up for it — far apart

East-end cafés serving takeout, but most with restrictions on hours, payment options or numbers

The lineup for Remarkable Bean in the Beaches on the weekend afternoon stretches almost as far as the shuttered Fox Theatre, a couple of storefronts down on Queen Street East.

The reason the line is so long is twofold.

The popular local coffee and snack shop is allowing only one or two customers in at a time to order takeout.

And folks in the line are spreading themselves up to six feet apart. Social distancing at work.

It’s a scene repeated at other cafés in the east end. Most shops are still open but, heeding the instructions of the city’s medical health officer, are serving takeout only.

Many are also reducing their hours and the number of people they let in at once. Some are refusing to take cash.

A few have closed up altogether.

Here’s a summary of what we know so far about the status of more than two dozen coffee shops in Riverdale, East York, Leslieville and the Beaches, sorted by streets.
