Harbord

 

This is where it all started. Opened 2009, this store went from a decrepit junk shop on a vacant strip, to a community hub in no time. It's a small place with big charm, a few seats, and a regular cast of characters from the neighbourhood. Nearby students, cyclists, and coffee lovers make this their destination. 

This is home base, and the DNA of Sam James Coffee Bar. 

 

OPEN

The Coffee Pocket

At Christie Pits TTC station. 

The second location, AKA the Coffee Pocket takes what was once a bank vault and locks coffee into Toronto's Korean neighbourhood. 

The Pocket, opened 2010, at less than half the size of the original shop, swings punches above its weight class. 

No seating, a thin bar to slam an espresso or dress up your take-out coffee, and a bare essentials approach. This is a no bullshit, everything you need, nothing you don't kinda place.

The Path

 

Underground at St. Andrew TTC station. The third, and highest impact location yet. 

Opened 2012, in the underground pathway connecting the towers of the Financial District, serving the thousands of people who occupy it. This shop can gather a bit of a crowd at rush hour, often spilling out into the hallway. Muscle up to the bar and you'll be in good hands from there. 

If you get lost finding us in the maze, we have 2 machines pulling shots all day... you can hear us from the building next door.

 

Open

Monday - Friday | 7am - 4pm

Oz


At the corner of Queen and Ossington, 2014 marks the opening of location #4. 

The moment you enter OZ, something is noticeably unique. 

Twice as tall as it is wide, the overwhelming space is subtle in tone and texture. 

 

This store is unlike anything we've done before. It features an original sculpture, monumental wheat paste and handmade steel bar by artist Jeremy Jansen.

A heated concrete stoop and a leaning bar line the sides of the room.

Between the barrage of conversation on all sides, and speakers playing from high above, it gets loud in here, but that's a good thing.

 

Open

Monday - Friday | 7am - 7pm
Saturday / Sunday | 9am - 5pm
