Meet the owner

Two blocks north of the Rosedale subway station, a white squirrel beams from a wall of emerald green grass. The albino squirrel has made the trek from its natural habitat in Trinity Bellwoods Park to its second home inside Freshii, along with owner David Ginsberg and his fair trade, locally roasted organic coffee.

Stepping up to the counter at White Squirrel Coffee Shop to peruse the menu board, you will see vintage moveable magnets displaying the daily offerings, which are simple and straight up — espresso drinks, coffee, tea, hot cocoas and lemons, as well as their iced counterparts.

From the sparkling top-of-the-line modern espresso machine to the polished wood countertops in front of the ice cream freezer — chock full of Greg’s famous ice cream — you’ll feel as though you’ve stepped into an old-fashioned soda fountain meets clean, minimalist and modern coffee bar.

The best cafés around Trinity Bellwoods Park

The best cafés around Trinity Bellwoods Park

Named after the mystical mascot of Trinity Bellwoods Park – the illusive white squirrel—this hipster haven has limited seating and an ice cream take-out window, which serves Greg’s ice cream (we recommend the malt ball flavour). You can sit inside or on their outdoor bench whilst sipping on a fair trade, organic coffee, or grab a cup on your way into the park.
