New Espresso Bar by Only Cafe

Almost coincidental with the demise of Chocolate Heaven, the Only Cafe (which is primarily a beer joint) has opened up an espresso bar next door. Have only walked by, but seems like a relaxed funky interior, with a good espresso machine. Anybody been yet? Comments?

And as for Rory of Chocolate Heaven, he's now started a business doing accounting or taxes or something. He's nothing if not versatile!

  1. That's funny! I just walked by it last night and thought the same thing.

    1. Finally got a chance to pop in....I'm a frequent flier at the Only, but late at night when I get off work.

      Got a latte to go; it was very good. They use beans by Intellingentsia, which I think is the supplier that Dark Horse uses.

      They put a doorway through into the bar when they renovated the place; hopefully they can get licensed to use the coffee bar as overflow seating for the pub now that the cold weather is upon us.

      Great addition to the neighbourhood...

        Sweet1 Thanks for that. Are they open late? It's hard to find a late night coffee spot in the east end (other than Tango Palace)

          Hi again/

          Open from 6am to 8pm....not late enough for me ;(

      2. I was visiting a friend in the area last Friday and stumbled upon this place. I was quite pleased as I was going to hit the Starbucks nearby. Decor wise its basically half cafe, half hipster dive bar. The machine looked good, though now I can't remember what make. The gal who served me struck me as a newbee, but conscientious. I had a respectable macchiato and would definitely go there again.
