Far Coast - Toast

Far Coast on Bloor Street by the Windsor Arms has shut down and by the sounds of the note on the door most other Far Coast coffee shops are shut also... So much for Coke beating Starbucks...

    I think the store was only a test of marketing by Coca-Cola. I don't think there were very serious plans to open a chain of Far Coast stores. Inserting their machines into other peoples' spaces sounds more like what their business plan was.

        The "map" on their window indicated stores across Canada, now all are taped over except for southern Ontario...

        That place was hopeless. The drinks came out of a giant "Tassimo" like machine and were tasteless. Unfortunately they're now in the Varsity theater..
