Our Danforth Anniversary!

As of today, Red Rocket has been on the Danforth for three years. Thank you to all of our wonderful customers and neighbours for supporting us for this long: here's to many more! Come by the Danforth store today for a treat from us. We wouldn't be here without you!


Holiday Hours!

We are open Christmas Eve and Boxing Day from 8 am to 2 pm, and are CLOSED Christmas Day!

Don't miss your coffee fix over Christmas - grab a bag of coffee to make at home on Christmas Day. Any bag is only $13.95 and comes with a free small coffee (or two dollars off a larger one!). Whatever your favourite is: light roast, dark roast, espresso! We also have a special "Holiday Blend," a Colombian medium roast with notes of citrus and chestnut. Yum!

If you want to make your bag of coffee extra special for someone you can grab a Red Rocket mug (and we will gift-wrap it for you too - we promise not to judge you for buying gifts on Christmas Eve) with it, just $25 for the pair!


It's a Patio Summer at Red Rocket

It's been a long time coming... and now it's here! Our Danforth location officially has a PATIO!

Though it's not licensed for alcohol just yet, you can enjoy an iced drink and a scone any day. Look for new furniture, spots to tie up dogs, and more in upcoming weeks! A big thank you to the wonderful Mike for building this great patio for us!

And speaking of summer, it's the May 24! If you're getting away from the city and hitting the cottage, we are extremely jealous. If you're not, well, we have a treat for you - summer drinks start this weekend which means FROZEN LATTES! Come get your fix of sweet, sweet blended espresso starting Saturday.

Both Red Rocket locations are open regular hours Saturday and Sunday of the long weekend, and are open 8-2 on Monday.


Feature Coffees

If you stop by Red Rocket on the regular, you might have noticed that we've changed up our feature coffees a bit. We think, for the better! We are now moving to a monthly feature medium blend coffee, allowing our customers to really have a chance to enjoy each feature before we switch it up.

We started the year with the Papua New Guinean "Tribal AA" coffee - a new coffee by Reunion Island. Acidic and fruity, it is a coffee that really wakes you up. While we no longer brew it daily, there are still a few bags left on our retail shelf. Grab them before they're gone!

Currently we are brewing Honduras "Finca la Montanita," Reunion Island's newest direct trade coffee. With notes of raisin, chocolate, and toasted walnut, this medium roast coffee is definitely worth a taste.

No matter what feature coffee we are brewing, we will always have plenty of choices on our shelves for you to take home and brew yourselves. Currently we have six different feature coffees available, as well as our signature light and dark roasts, and of course espresso! Every bag is $13.95, and don't forget - they come with a free small coffee just for you!

Please note: our two locations sometimes switch things up a bit. These are the coffees currently available at our Danforth location - you might get a different blend at our Wellesley location, but we promise you will love it just as much :)

Holiday Hours

We know how stressful the holidays can be, and we know how much coffee helps. Don't have time to make breakfast before all your Christmas shopping? Our scones are here for you. Don't have the energy to make your own Christmas cookies? Grab a jar of Kourambiedes and pretend you made them yourself - we promise, we won't tell.

For your convenience, both Red Rocket locations will be open Christmas Eve and Boxing Day from 8 am to 2 pm, and New Years Eve from 7 am to 4 pm. We will be closed on Christmas Day and New Years Day. So grab yourself a bag of our delicious holiday blend coffee to get you through those days at home! :)

Merry Christmas!
