Casa Coffee and food shop has been the favourite corner spot at the heart of Kensington Market since 1963. Located at the corner of Augusta Ave. and Baldwin St. you will find our shop packed with fresh bulk food, fully stocked shelves of jars that line the walls, filled with all manner of coffee, tea, spices, herbs, nuts, chocolate and candy.
Stop in and grab a fresh cup of coffee or pick up something for your pantry. While you’re there, have a look at globes spinning over your head and an old-school counter lined with sweets and sundries. Locals and visitors alike delight in grabbing a scoop of ice cream or fresh canolli and peering out of the windows, which open up in the summer months for an open-air feel onto the street, becoming a sidewalk café in the truest of senses. With barely more than a dozen seats inside, there is still enough room to hang out while facing open windows that give out onto Augusta. Most of Casa seating space is on benches or at the bar outside.
For the convience of those in a hurry, the pull up window is loved and appreciated by many of our loyal customers.
Once you're in, you can choose your adventure. The door to the left leads you to our cafe and the door to the right brings you to our shop, buy and go market.
