Starbucks opened a new store at the corner of Church and Gerrard in Toronto.
Behind this bland, unassuming facade, I never expected to see what I did. Superb, hand-painted lettering on raw, exposed brick, cropped by windows - giving the impression that these murals had been there all along. These, in conjunction with antique furniture sourced from local emporiums and tin ceiling tiles give this store amazing character. Is Starbucks getting back to their community roots? Thumbs up!
