Coffee Shop

“Jimmy's is an independent coffee shop that has been slowly expanding throughout the city. You'll probably notice the yellow coffee cup lids in the hands of many locals living in the King West neighbourhood. All of their locations have beautiful interiors with lots of natural light. A local hive of startup professionals often sit themselves down for coffee chats and work sessions. ”
