Most east end coffee shops still open — but with changes

Cafés in Riverdale and East York serving takeout only, some with reduced hours and payment options

Can you still get a coffee in Riverdale and East York?

Sure. Most cafés are still open in the area.

After all, the area is known for its diverse shops serving up coffee, tea, hot chocolate and assorted treats indoors and on patios.

But you will have to take your latte and muffin to go, as open shops are heeding the encouragement of the city’s medical health officer to shut down eat-in options but continue providing takeout.

And you may have to check the hours before showing up for your caffeine hit. Many cafés are posting reduced hours for the duration of the coronavirus crisis.
