Café by the Lake

Sustain Yourself

At our flagship cafe by the lake we invite you to enjoy some of life’s simple pleasures.

Open the door and enjoy the aroma of freshly roasted boutique coffee. Admire the art created by your neighbours from Etobicoke-Lakeshore. Notice the benches and kneeling wall repurposed from the historical Christ Church Mimico after their tragic fire. Converse with your neighbours, read a book or surf the net on our complimentary WiFi.

Enjoy the setting on the Mimico waterfront. Wander out the back and enjoy your coffee by the lake with the dog walkers.

Now put these all together with a perfectly poured espresso or latté or a cup of Mimico Joe and top it off with a home baked chocolate chunk cookie. All right here in one place.

At Birds and Beans we believe sustainability includes sustaining ourselves… right here in our Etobicoke-Lakeshore community.

We invite you to come in and enjoy a moment with us.
