Tag your F•R•I•E•N•D•S! Toronto Central Perk Cafe is soon to become a reality!
As previously announced, the coffee shop inspired by the popular 90s sitcom is in the works at Bathurst and Wellington and set to launch this July.
A flurry of activity on the cafe’s social media accounts shows that progress is well underway and suggests that an official opening date could be announced really soon.
In recent days, photos posted to Instagram offer a sneak peek inside and showcase a range of espresso-based bevies and teas that are forthcoming.
With any luck, Friends fans in Toronto could be just days away from getting their caffeine fix and catching up with pals inside their favourite episodes, not to mention earning “perks” towards free coffees – the best kind of “friends with benefits.”
