Another Toronto coffee shop has come to an end, and this time it’s the Baby Point neighborhood that will surely miss its local hangout.
RGLR Coffee (The Regular) at 548 Annette Street, near Keele, announced its permanent closure with a sad post on Instagram.
The specialty coffee and bottle shop opened around three and a half years ago to great praise from the neighborhood and has focused on serving excellent coffee from international retailers such as Denmark’s Coffee Collective and Vermont-based Abracadabra Coffee Co.
“I would like to inform you that we are closing our operations at 549 Annette St. effective December 31, 2022. Thank you just isn’t enough to describe my appreciation for your support and friendship over the years,” the Instagram post reads.
The shop also supplied niche wines and sake and even had its own line of merchandise.
“It’s been a short 3.5 years at this location, but I feel very privileged to have met so many lovely people who share similar interests and values in life. I wish these connections will continue to grow, although I will no longer be vaping your latte, let’s meet somewhere else to continue our conversation.”
The post suggests that while this space is closing, there is still something happening with RGLR’s journey in the future.
A comment from the shop clarifies by saying; “We will announce the new owners and what is happening very soon when appropriate. In the meantime, stop by and have some coffee made.”
This is the latest closure of cafes in the city including Tampered Press on Dundas West, Early Bird and GoodGood.
The post of RGLR continues to thank hardworking employees and dedicated customers for their support over the years.
“Thank you to all past and present RGLR employees, suppliers, friends and the community for making us who we are. I’ve learned so much from you all.”
