With seven cafes, a juice bar, a CrossFit gym and Diane Keaton visits, it’s safe to say the Junction is at gentrification capacity. Regardless, cafés and specialty shops keep popping up like mushrooms. Last week, Kim Samuelsen opened a one-room, Scandinavian-inspired coffee shop—named Kaffebar—after ditching her corporate financial consulting gig. A shiny La Marzocco espresso machine looms over the six-stool room, formerly a Harley-Davidson service centre. Pilot coffee and Tealish teas conform to the established indie café code; luckily, ubiquitous Circles and Squares baked goods are nowhere in sight—muffins, biscotti, cookies and cardamom-spiced cinnamon buns are all baked by Samuelsen in the little back kitchen.

Kaffebar, 2830 Dundas St. W., 647-388-0188
