The Best Coffee Shops and Cafes in Oakville
Discover these coffee shops and cafes in Oakville this International Coffee Day!
October 1st is International Coffee Day, but let’s be honest, every day is coffee day! If you're someone who can’t start your day until you’ve had a cup of coffee, then today is for you. International Coffee Day is a day for celebrating the art of coffee and discovering the best local coffee shops and cafes around, and there are so many great coffee spots in Oakville. The coffee scene in Oakville is filled with plenty of small roasters serving up fresh brews and ethically sourced beans. Whether you’re grabbing a cup of joe on the go or cozying up to sip your coffee alongside a delicious pastry, your local coffee shop has your back. When you look forward to saying hi to your favourite barista every morning, it’s easy to see that coffee and community go hand in hand. Recently launched and available for purchase, North Oak Tower 3 has joined our master-planned community at Dundas St. E. & Trafalgar Rd. in Oakville, and there are plenty of neighbourhood coffee spots for you to fall in love with in this thoughtfully connected community.
At Minto Communities, our greatest value is aspiring to build better – better places to live, better places to work, and better communities. By building with the surrounding neighbourhoods in mind, supporting local businesses, and fostering connection through thoughtfully planned spaces, we aspire to create homes that satisfy your love for community, and now, your love for coffee too!
North Oak Tower 3 Blend
We’ve partnered with Patera Caffé, a family-run business in the GTA, to gift new home buyers at North Oak Tower 3 a specialty North Oak coffee blend exclusive to Minto Communities. Patera Caffé is a traditional Italian coffee roastery with over 25 years of experience in the coffee industry. Patera has developed a North Oak coffee blend that’s fairtrade, organic certified, and sustainably made, just like North Oak! This specialty coffee blend is packaged in eco-friendly Biotre 1.0 block bottom bags with a one way valve to ensure freshness. 60% of the bag is plant based and 60% of the bag can be composted. The label and adhesive on the bags are recyclable, compostable, and made with soy/water based inks. The ethical and sustainable coffee blend and packaging perfectly aligns with North Oak’s commitment to sustainable design, building, and living through sustainable technology and building features, like the geo-exhange program. The North Oak specialty coffee blend features 80% Arabica and 20% Robusta F.T.O. beans giving it a hint of acidity with a subtle cocoa nuance enhanced by essences of nuts, barley, and tobacco for an earthy aftertaste.
Just like the perfect cup of coffee, there are key ingredients that go into making North Oak the perfect place to live in Oakville. Get to know the best coffee shops and cafes in Oakville this International Coffee Day below!
