Mark Browning and Jess Nadel live in the Donovan and wanted a place where they could get a good cup of coffee. They couldn’t find one so the enterprising couple opened Beards Coffee Bar & Bakery in October 2016. As it turns out, lots of other people were looking for a friendly neighbourhood coffee and sweet shoppe.
Located across from Tuco’s Taco Lounge, Beards serves Propeller Coffee, an award-winning artisan coffee roaster based in Toronto. Cold-brewed coffee is on tap.
Sweets are baked daily and on the premise. All are made lovingly using recipes developed by Jess and the crew of skilled bakers. Favourites include donuts, cinnamon buns, tarts, cookies, cupcakes and croissants.
