Cherry Bomb Coffee was opened in 2005, in a tiny hole-in-the-wall retail space at the bottom end of Roncesvalles in the West end.

Our idea was to provide premium, locally roasted coffee and fresh-baked pastries in a fast, take-out setting.

Our idea worked and before long there were line-ups that snaked out onto the sidewalk outside. In 2012, we started Spitfire Coffee Roasters in order to explore, more deeply, our enthusiasm and passion for the coffee industry.
