GoodGood St. Clair

A new midtown gourmet food shop is giving away free food this weekend

GoodGood Café, the local commerce company that brings together curated items, local hard-to-find favourites, and specialty snacks through instant delivery (in 60 mins or less) and retail has opened up a new, permanent location at 1187 St. Clair West. Founded by Ritual alum Robert Kim and Kris Linney and backed by an experienced team from Google, Ritual and Shopify, this is a new area for GoodGood, which opened up a pop-up at 410 Adelaide Street West in December and 140A The Esplanade in February. Like The Esplanade spot, the store on St. Clair West will be a sit-down café and wine bar, offering a full coffee bar with pastries, grab & go lunch, stay ‘n eat lunch, beer and wine. 

To celebrate, the new location has tons of grand opening events happening this weekend, including half off select bottles of wine & 6-packs of beer, exclusive vegan ice cream tastings by Honey’s and a chance to snag a free General Assembly pizza on all in-store purchases after 12:00p.m. on Friday, April 1. Also, local vendors, including Comeback Snacks founder Emily O’Brien, will be joining the festivities, hanging out at GoodGood’s St. Clair location for a portion of the event.

The company is guided by one simple goal: to connect local makers with their community through authentic online and retail experiences, making lives, “a little easier, a little more convenient, and a little more delightful.” 

GoodGood’s handpicked selection of makers reflects the local community with curated coffee, beverages, snacks and everyday essentials from Toronto businesses likeHoney’s Ice Cream, Marben Restaurant, General Assembly Pizza, SmartSweets and more. 

“Think of us as your one-stop community hangout,” says Kris Linney, co-founder of GoodGood. “We’re here for your daily coffee, snacks and drinks for a night in and a cold pint or glass of wine when you need it.”

The café bar offers coffee, tea, and espresso based beverages alongside delicious pastries from Tori’s Bakeshop, Dear Grain, and Goûter. In the afternoon, you can swing by for beer on tap, wine by the glass and pizza. Additionally, GoodGood offers a unique collection of hard to find snacks, craft beer and organic wine. This outpost will be participating in the CafeTO program so there will be outdoor patio seating during the warm weather months. 

Delivery is offered daily from 10:00a.m. – 10:00p.m. for those living within a 5 km radius of a GoodGood location. Delivery is promised within 60 minutes, though GoodGood has been averaging 32 minutes. Those outside the instant delivery radius can still enjoy same-day/next-day delivery. Delivery is $4.99 or free if you spend more than $60.

With plans to open three additional all-day cafés in the coming months, you can expect to see GoodGood popping up in Queen West and Midtown neighbourhoods very soon.
