JetFuel Coffee is a Toronto landmark – a small coffee shop in an offbeat neighborhood with its own roast of espresso that is the best you’ve ever tasted. At the JetFuel the day begins and ends with coffee, we don’t make much else. Pastries are made fresh daily, and in case you don’t drink coffee, we also have fresh-squeezed lemonade and a good selection of teas.

Neighborhood Scene

The coffee shop is not just a place to get great coffee, but to connect with neighbours, find out what’s new in the music collection and check out what’s going on in the community. You can pick up your email at the shop or bring your laptop and use our free wireless Internet.

Jet Fuel is located in Toronto’s historic Cabbagetown neighbourhood, one of the largest areas of continuous, preserved Victorian homes in North America. We are just around the corner from the gay village, and Cabbagetown is home to a vibrant dance community with three companies based in the neighbourhood.

Cycling Community

Jet Fuel is a haven for cyclists and home to Canada’s first men’s UCI trade team – former national champions in both road and track cycling. Team jerseys are available for sale, and all proceeds go to support the racing.

John started running Alleycat races – messenger races through downtown traffic – in 1987 and is a long-time supporter of the international messenger community and the IFCM. In 1996 John designed and built the world’s first figure-eight velodrome, the Human Powered Rollercoaster.

Since 1992

When you’ve been around as long as we have, the stories start to add up.

Check out The Gallery for photos of everything from the 10th anniversary in of the coffee shop to the race team’s national championship win in 2002.

Art Exhibits at JetFuel

Exhibits at the Jet Fuel change monthly with art, photography and installations from artists in the neighbourhood, around Toronto, and across the country.
