At Bond Collective, we want you to love the space and neighborhood as much as we do, and as the old saying states, the best way to a person’s heart is through their stomach...
1. Irving Farm Coffee Roasters
Tucked away on the little back street of Irving Avenue, Irving Farm is the perfect place to escape the urban jungle and casually sip a steaming craft coffee. They also offer teas, sandwiches, salads, baked goods and more. If you’re coming later in the afternoon and want a bit of a harder drink, they are happy to sell you beer or wine to complement your caffeine fix.
