Toronto’s been buzzing with celebrity sightings over the last few days during the 43rd annual Toronto International Film Festival.

But one celebrity sighting, in particular, has the internet in a frenzy after Ryan Gosling made a surprise visit to a Toronto coffee shop.

Leading up to the festival, Grinder Coffee on Gerrard invited the Canadian actor to visit the coffee shop, using the hashtag #ryanneedsgrinder to get his attention.

Following the premiere of Gosling’s latest film First Man, the actor paid the coffee shop a visit to the delight of staff.

“The man himself showed up. What a good sport, a well brought up Canadian boy. We truly appreciate Ryan taking the time the time to visit us during #tiff,” reads a tweet accompanying a photo of Gosling and an employee posted on Twitter.

This isn’t the first time the cafe has tried to get a celebrity to stop by during TIFF. Last year, the coffee shop attempted to get Idris Elba to stop in, but unfortunately, the Molly’s Game actor was a no-show, hence the Idris Elba jab in the tweet.

It’s true, Elba clearly missed out.
