Jimmy’s Coffee – Grand Opening!

Jimmy's Coffee

Jimmy’s Coffee is putting the “cool” back into coffee and gives you one of the most stylish places in town to enjoy it.  There is nothing quite like a perfectly pulled cup of espresso!

Jimmy's Coffee 01

The coffee bean may come across simple but it is the talent of what you do with the bean that makes it a star. The grind, the temperature, at Jimmy’s Coffee they appreciate the cool of the coffee bean and the people of Toronto hunting for a good creama on their espresso.

About Jimmy’s Coffee

The side streets of King West’s Entertainment district have some great brick homes that have fallen into disrepair. The home of Jimmy’s Coffee was once unloved but has since undergone renovations to breath new life into the bricks. Owned by Phil Morrison, an actor, entrepreneur, contractor, and proprietor of a few bars in Toronto, Jimmy’s Coffee has a vision to be the destination for coffee cool. On the walls are photos of a few famous Jimmy’s. The warm atmosphere makes it easy to lose yourself from the hustle and bustle of King Street West.

About Phil Morrison, Owner of Jimmy’s Coffee
Phil Morrison has done it all – actor, renovator, writer, and bar-owner. He owned and operated The Bohemian, Mackenzies and more recently was a partner at Healey’s in Toronto. He stumbled across Ashleigh Waters at Hank’s Cafe in St. Lawrence Market area and uncovered a barista and manager who gets coffee. His vision for Jimmy’s Coffee is to be a place to meet and hang out without any pretentious attitudes.

About Ashleigh “Max” Waters, Manager, Chief Barista
“Max” has been pulling coffee for almost 10 years. There is no Americano or shot of espresso that gets by her without being perfect, rich, and creamy. She recently lead the team at the famed espresso hot spot Hank’s Cafe (formerly owned by Jamie Kennedy). Ashleigh also did a stint at the Espresso Post in Collingwood. She delivers friendly service with style and charm. Ashleigh believes in coffee satisfaction and should be celebrated by the staff and customer alike. She doesn’t believe in sass with coffee – just good espresso pulls.

  3. I’ve been a Jimmy’s Coffee regular customer since they opened but today I am officially not a Jimmy’s customer anymore. I ordered an Americano and while the guy was making it, I asked if I could change my order to have it put on ice. He mumbled something about not knowing which cup was mine (which there were cups lined up on the table) and basically ignored my request. I took my Americano and added sugar. Then went back to the counter and asked the lady (who I assume was the owner) if I could get it on ice and was sorry for the inconvenience and would pay more if needed. She proceeded to tell me rudely that I should have asked before while I was paying for it. Jimmy’s customer service is terrible, and yes, I changed my order slightly (it’s just a cup with ice for god’s sake – not a completely different order!). I’m never going back there again.

    • I was actually there while this happened yesterday (odd luck).

      To be fair, there was a giant line up and backlog of drinks. He first said for you to identify your order when the glass came up, bit it was already being made by then. Then she reminded you for next time, as she was figuring out how to remake yours.

      The iced americano has cold water not hot water in it as base, so just pouring your cup into ice wouldn’t have worked. You also wouldn’t want regular sugar in it versus liquid sugar.

      Hope you’ll resolve this with them.
