Caffe Artigiano closes up their Toronto location

Vancouver-based café chain Caffe Artigiano recently closed up their sole Toronto location, after barely a year in business.

Located in the city’s busy downtown core, the Financial District’s coffee lovers didn’t seem to take well enough to Caffe Artigiano’s offerings, including their signature Spanish Latte.

BlogTO reports that the café shuttered amidst some evidence of financial distress: “According to a Landlord’s Distress Warrant posted to its front door at 67 Yonge Street, the cafe owed more than $20,000.”


In the fall of 2014, Caffe Artigiano touted the Toronto outpost for its 1,400-square-foot space, 44 seats, 16 employees, and “a beautiful new world interior,” with “architectural details such as herringbone flooring, sleek marble countertops, black granite table tops, bench seating, and a large community table,” per their original press release.

Unfortunately, the area may have already been at max cafe-pactiy, thanks to “nearby indie cafes including Sam James, Clockwork and Dineen,” points out BlogTO, as well as the usual mega-chain coffee strongholds. 

Caffe Artigiano operates cafes in the Vancouver area, as well as in Calgary.

We reached out to Caffe Artigiano for comment on the closure, but have yet to hear back from them.
