A pop-up in Toronto would become permanent under a proposal going to city council
An interactive cafe and space outside Toronto’s city hall is set to become permanent under a proposal going to city council.
CaféTO is just one of several temporary eateries in Toronto. They are meant to compliment the work of local artists and have become a popular destination for curious Torontonians, who can either stroll in on their own or hire a professional to help them cook or even interact with visitors.
CaféTO is often busy, with The Happiest Roommate hosting a wedding, a restaurant throwing a birthday party and those aiming to stay as late as possible. Take The Harnett + Thoreau , which has a ferris wheel and/or Ferris wheel which I have an opinion about.
Venues are listed with a mobile application for almost any time of day or night, and as a result, they seem to be incredibly popular and even have their own Instagram page . There are coffee shops and restaurants in Toronto such as Montreal’s Toqueand, which are shut down for the summer. CaféTO has rooms to rent as well as a garden to look after. A package including meals and use of the kitchen goes for $80 to $110 at any given time.
A spokeswoman for the venue said: “CaféTO’s guest applications are constant and we are often booked for long periods. ‘Hotel’ services are only done for guests staying for a short period of time, not for everyday guests.”
Having worked with numerous media outlets, including TV station 4Oak, CBC, and a load of music outlets including CBC, I can say that CaféTO is really one of the best temporary venues you can find. Their layout is perfect for those who simply want to look around or the more interested in the fantastic food, coffee and wine that is served there. There is a definite vibe.
Below are some of our favourite works by those who created the spaces.
