We know you're not just addicted to coffee, you LOVE it. So do we. We've searched high and low and come back with the best coffee offering you'll find anywhere in Canada.
Bean Coffee Shop, your new go-to supplier for roasted coffee beans. We sell only 100% Arabica coffee beans, roasted fresh AFTER you place your order and shipped right to your door. You'll never have to pick up stale coffee (say it with me: Ewwwwww) from the grocery store shelves ever again. With dozens of single-origins and blends available, we're sure you'll find something you like.
If you're an espresso lover (we are!), make sure to try our espresso blends. Using only Arabica coffee beans, we roast to the point of bringing out that dark, deep flavour, but stop the process before it starts tasting burnt. Stop drinking charcoal, enjoy espresso with FLAVOUR!
Grab an espresso or coffee (decaf if it's late?) and peruse to your heart's content.
Whether you enjoy your coffee by the pot, shot or single-serve, we can help you out with whatever you need.
Not just a coffee-serving company, we offer cups and mugs to accessorize your morning. Whether you're a fan of the gigantic mugs or prefer a concentrated espresso shot, we'll help find something that suits your style and needs.
On the go? Go for the insulated mug with a spill-proof top. Available in large sizes, or smaller sizes that fit under a single-serve brewer, you can take your coffee with you and save money versus buying from a cafe.
Enjoy your coffee with friends? Sit down and share a cup of fresh roasted or flavoured coffee over a friendly conversation.
Balzac's coffee began humbly in 1996 in Stratford, Ontario. Known around the region for great tasting coffee, their expertly roasted beans quickly became popular, expanding to the surrounding Toronto region. Roasting great coffee is our passion, and we're proud of every cup we share with our customers. Come in and enjoy a regular coffee, or try some of our master-roaster produced espresso drinks, including lattess, cappuccinos and macchiatos.

Their focus is simple; to serve an exception coffee in an environment tailored to the community that it's a part of. We want to reflect the culture that our customers are a part of. That's why all of our locations are designed independent of one another, reflecting the historic significance and character of the town.
Achieving a perfect harmony with the culture of our neighbourhoods encompasses capturing small details and vintage historical items that are used to decorate the shop. Balzacs coffee shops are an ideal location to grab a coffee to go, or sit around and read a book. Whether you're catching up with an old friend or catching up on work, come and enjoy premium roaster coffee and a fresh snack or meal.
How did Balzacs come about? Our founder (Diana Olsen) felt a kindred connection with Honore de Balzac - one of history's most avid drinkers and celebrated French novelist. Diana's university studies in french literature enveloped her imagination, and after spending time in France decided that North America (and Toronto in particular) needed some fine european cafes. Bringing the traditions and sophistication of a french cafe to Canadians wasn't the easiest decision to make, but Canadians have embraced Balzacs coffees and they're now a favourite spot for neighbours.
After a stay in San Francisco to learn all there was about the art of coffee roasting and serving, Diana returned to Toronto to start her shops. Because of her background and training from the West Coast Specialty Coffee Training institute, she is able to oversee all aspects of the coffee business personally to ensure that the european quality and style is carried through all Balzacs locations.
