walk-up windows

The top 5 walk-up windows in Toronto

Walk-up windows are awesome and I wish Toronto had more of them. Whether you're grabbing a bite with your pooch or you're just super serious about perfecting your tan, these establishments will serve you without ever making you step inside.

White Squirrel
This espresso bar across from Trinity Bellwoods is majorly appreciated by every park-going, coffee-drinking dog owner in Toronto.

Bobbie Sue's
For those moments when you're just way too drunk to walk into any respectable establishment, this all-mac 'n cheese shop just off Ossington has got you. Just step right up.

Sweet Jesus (Riverside)
You know that feeling of wanting to spend every possible second of summer outside? This soft serve window on Queen East understands and they're serving up monstrous twisty cones to the sidewalk.

The Pie Commission (Etobicoke)
No need to go inside to get your butter chicken pie fix. Head to the back of this factory outlet in Etobicoke to find the walk-up window serving hungry customers.

Casa Acoreana Coffee
Counter culture in Kensington is alive and kicking. This long-established coffee bar on Augusta is a local fave for lattes, chit-chat and prime people-watching patio seats.
