    Toronto | 133 Queen East | 133m | 41s | IBI Group

    Right, I hope the bougie condo yuppies will respect the recovering addicts. I would expect that these new developments will integrate more or less the same as those in Riverside and Leslieville, where similar services are provided.

    Restaurant Comings & Goings

    A redevelopment destined to become "luxury" condos/rentals won't do much to ease that crisis. Le Sélect is an institution that has produced, among other talents, Matty Matheson, who is perhaps the city's biggest celebrity right now.

    Starbucks

    Enjoy the fritters while you can, because the owner was told that her lease wouldn't be renewed past April 2021. I think the building has been sold.

    Starbucks

    Rumour in Leslieville is that the Starbucks at Queen & Logan is moving to the old Thirsty Duck spot at Queen & Carlaw and people are upset. There's lots of pressure from local indie chains, even in the PATH these days. There will always be demand for really subpar coffee, though, so I don't...

    Grinder Coffee is closing at the end of October due to the cost of rent.

    Did you see my post on the previous page? It was much more dramatic and alarmist; please reply. I'm very sorry about your poorly-researched purchase.
