We started in the food distribution business dabout 12 years ago in Montreal. In 2014 we wanted to build a retail/cafe/bistro in Toronto. Which brings us here at solita (south of little Italy). We brought a little of Europe and Montreal flare to this small cozy storefront to enjoy a coffee while working or a snack with a little wine before going to your next destination or browse the store for your next meal idea.
An eclectic literary salon, ad hoc and sneakily wonderful. Tell your favourites.
A reading, some music, a break, a reading. Everyone gets 20 minutes. The crowd is supportive and friendly, curious, engaged. You will probably make a new good friend.

Since 2013, AMAZING NEW STUFF has been showcasing writers and musicians in Toronto. We specialize in creators that are outrageously talented but not that easy to find in small venues. The most common reaction people have to the show is "I can't believe I got to be there." Come join us!
