Coffee and Clothing

Coffee and Clothing is a combination vintage clothing store, cafe and roastery. 

Housed in what used to be an old Vietnamese hair salon, the project is a collaboration between Zoe’s Coffee Roasters and Wins Above Replacement.

You’d be tempted never to leave the shop’s cozy confines, but that’s not all there is to this place.

A killer patio out back is complete with way more seating and a kids’ play area.

A couple from San Francisco curates all the men’s and women’s vintage clothing in the shop, getting their start in Toronto at the Leslieville Flea.

They like to use the terminology “curated second hand” rather than vintage sometimes, aiming at eliminating a dependence on fast fashion by stocking specific mint condition items.

Unisex-type items are targeted, inspiration coming from workwear and modern Japanese styles, with a backbone of lots of denim and old school designers like Calvin Klein.

Items are mostly curated from lots of estate sales in and around Toronto, meaning you’ll find tons of dope regional items like $24 retro Jays and Toronto caps as well as jackets embroidered with names of local spots like Downsview.

This striped jumpsuit ($52) is one of several one-pieces that make up the more aspirational side of the fashion, stuff shoppers might have always wanted to try out.

There’s also a housewares selection, made up mostly of ceramics and stoneware like this eight-piece tea set by old English brand Midwinter.

Coffee for the cafe is roasted 800 grams at a time throughout the day, beans sourced from a mix of countries.

Espresso ($2.50) is also made using a fixed up vintage espresso machine, true to the ethos of the store.

A latte is $4 whether hot or iced, and though there’s no fancy latte art here, the dense cap of creamy foam holds up much better than some intricate designs.

Overall, the coffee here is bold but balanced with a hint of sweetness to it. Espresso-based beverages typically usually use a darker roast Mexican bean for consistency, but they mix it up more for drip since that brew method makes it easier to taste different flavour notes.

Baked goods like banana chocolate chip, carrot, blueberry or mocha muffins ($3) and cookies come from local patisserie C’est Si Bon.

Salads starting at $5.50 and parfaits from Foodbenders provide some more substantial ready-made food options.

The venture is owned by a pair of brothers-in-law who bring separate experiences visiting coffee shops in Asia and working in corporate retail clothing environments to create Coffee and Clothing.
