Starbucks Express Toronto

Starbucks Express Store now open in Toronto

Toronto's Union Station will soon be flush with delicious food outlets, making it even easier for you to grab meals on the go. It's fitting, then, that Starbucks is debuting its first ever Canadian Express concept store today in this busy transit hub.

The tiny new cafe, which clocks in at 400 square-feet, doesn't have any seating. And instead of bee-lining it to the counter when you enter, an employee takes your order at the front of the store and sends it electronically to a barista.

To speed up long lineups, this location features a pared-down, commuter-friendly menu that focuses on basic drinks (i.e. brewed coffee and lattes; not PSLs and mocha java frappucinnos) and food items, such as breakfast sandwiches.

Starbucks opened its first Express store in New York City last year. The Toronto location is the third of its kind in the world. It joins the city's first solo McCafe at this busy station, which is proving to be a testing ground for corporate food giants that are trying out new concepts.
