The Remarkable Bean On Queen Street East In Leslieville

Leslieville/Riverside, Restaurants


Oh, for the love of sweet, sweet java.

Situated at 1103 Queen St East at Caroline Ave, Leslieville’s Remarkable Bean is the little sister to the long-established Beaches location, which is turning 30 next year. Brother and sister George and Marianne are the dedicated and caffeine-entranced owners, and they make a truly welcoming pair!

On a lovely fall day, I stopped in to sample the newest offerings, and was treated to a great tour of the Leslieville shop’s highlights, including a very impressive coffee roasting system. G and M have been roasting their own coffee for decades; having 10 varieties of freshly roasted organic beans on hand simply can’t be beat – for taste or aroma!



There’s another thing that makes the Remarkable Bean even more remarkable: they bake all their tasty goods from scratch, in-house, and the making of many of those yummy treats involves something called BUTTER! George mentioned he buys hundreds and hundreds of pounds of the stuff each month, and that in and of itself can be a challenge. (I can attest to the delicious results! I mean… cherry cheesecake? Yes, please!!)




The Remarkable Bean is quite a bit more than a stop to fuel up and get a great cup of java; it’s a little centre of neighbourly social activity – there’s a weekly chess night, and, thanks to George’s continued involvement in the music scene, an open mic night as well – how fab is that?

Want to have someone on your side?

Since 1991, I’ve steered my career through a real estate market crash and burn; survived a slow painful cross-country recession; completed an M.E.S. graduate degree from York University called ‘Planning Housing Environments’; executed the concept, sales & marketing of multiple new condo and vintage loft conversions; and guided hundreds of clients through the purchase and sale of hundreds of freehold and condominium dwellings across the original City of Toronto. From a gritty port industrial city into a glittering post-industrial global centre, I’ve navigated the ebbs and flows of a property market as a consistent Top Producer. And I remain as passionate about it today as when I started.
