OuR STORY

From award-winning coffee to 

mood-enhancing drinks

Award-winning coffee started it all

Ranked by Yelp and BlogTO as a top cafe destination, Strange Love currently has key locations in Toronto’s most coveted neighbourhoods. 


Strange Love has a loyal and dedicated community of King West “Entrepreneurs”, Queen West “Creatives”, and Financial District “Professionals” that believe in creative expression and self-reliance.


A Strange Love devotee can often be found travelling outback destinations or attending transformational festivals like Burning Man. 


We take coffee seriously, and obsess over it much like wine lovers do; whether it’s curating heirloom varietals from craft farming regions or formulating approachable, yet complex blends.


The future of wellness-based drinks

We've now taken our love for damn fine coffee, to what we believe is the future - wellness-based, botanical drinks. 


We know our community of creatives are mindful of their health now more than ever, and we want to help lead the way by giving them a daily boost for their health. 


All our Toronto locations will be featuring our innovative, mood-altering tinctures, tonics and drinks, thanks to our partnership with Dr. James Yoon, a naturopathic doctor.


Our cafes are now stocked with proprietary doctor-formulated refreshments featuring “magical” ingredients and superfoods. 


These premium mushrooms, and clinically therapeutic herbs and botanicals  are designed to leave customers with their desired feeling: focused, relaxed, or energized.

“By opening the first mood-altering cafe in North America, we’re hoping to provide easy access to rare, yet effective ingredients and a place for clients to get a daily dose of botanical wellness” 

- Dr James Yoon.

An uncommon collective of experts creating mood-altering drinks

Strange Love brought together a unique blend of experts to launch the mood-altering therapeutic product line. 


- Dr James Yoon, a top-rated Toronto naturopath doctor

- Eleni Bock, an award-winning mixologist from the world-renowned Bar Chef 

- Jef Edwards, an experienced fermentation specialist, who imported yeast from Champagne, France


Together, they propagated a vinegar-based probiotic shrub for the mixtures, and came together to create the great tasting, effective concoctions. 


The Power & Flow drink for instance, promises endurance and explosive energy thanks to its star ingredient, a miracle mushroom known as cordyceps. 


This mushroom became famous in 1993 when China’s Olympic Women’s running team broke 3 world records at the World Outdoor Track and Field Championships and were subsequently accused of doping. 


It was later revealed the team’s recording-breaking abundant energy and stamina was due to the wild mushroom known as cordyceps.


We've cultivated premium blends of these super mushrooms to be used in drink boosters and wellness-enhancing supplements, available now at our locations and online. 


We believe health and wellness can become a part of one's daily habits, just like great tasting coffee.
