  • Amazing local business! Sweet and professional staff and an owner who knows just how to make you feel welcome! I just visited this cafe for the first time since it opened and I am BEYOND impressed. It exceeded my expectations for coffee and food options. Loads of vegan meal to go options with many vegan baked treats promised to come! The non vegan treats are scrumptious too! And the coffee is the best for blocks, hands down. Please do yourselves and Bloordale a favor and give Charlie's Friend a warm welcome!
