After opening its first Toronto location in 2022, popular Japanese coffee brand % Arabica is opening its second spot in the city. If you haven’t had the chance to enjoy the “world’s best coffee”, it’s time to take a trip downtown.
The world-renowned Japanese coffee brand, % Arabica is opening its downtown Toronto location on July 26 at Union Station, following the success of its first Canadian opening at Yorkdale Mall.
Those travelling through Union Station will be able to enjoy the premium and high-quality coffee experience that % Arabica is known for.

“We are proud to provide an enhanced coffee experience whether living in, arriving, or leaving the city, starting with the beautiful design of this location. When you step foot into the thoughtfully designed % Arabica, you’ll feel your coffee experience has been up-leveled with a space that allows you to enjoy the moment with the world’s best coffee.”
Though its coffee is the showstopper of it all, the new location’s interior design is not one to dismiss. It’s designed by Tacklebox Architecture under the leadership of architect Jeremy Barbour, who is known for his Aesop store designs.
According to the chain, the design “draws inspiration from the geological and glacial formation of Canada, with the space
consisting of a floor-to-ceiling, carved, faceted wall terrain, including stacked layers of gypsum, that
can be found in eastern Canada adding a distinctive Canadian feel to the space.”
In honour of its newest Canadian opening, on July 26,% Arabica will offer the first 50 customers an exclusive pastry item and the first 150 customers a limited edition cup designed by a local Canadian artist with purchase. The cup’s design will pay homage to Toronto’s landscape.
% Arabica is renowned for serving the world’s finest coffee beans and barista brews. You’ll want to check out its special blend of espresso-based coffees, specialty lattes, drip coffees, matcha, and much more.
