BOB’S YOUR UN­CLE!

Richmond Hill Post - - Food - — YT

Bob evokes a feel­ing of fa­mil­iar­ity. It’s the name of a pop­u­lar hair­style from 1915; there’s that un­cle named Bob; and now it’s a new café at Christie and Daven­port. Bob Cof­fee Bar is the lat­est brain­child from the group be­hind Lil’ Baci: Mark Bacci, Suresh Singh and Riyaz So­mani.

The con­cept drew inspiratio­n from cof­fee joints Bacci has fre­quented in L.A., Hawaii and else­where. The team hopes that Bob — lo­cated on a strip that is de­void of places to gather — will be­come a lo­cal han­gout, with plans to in­cor­po­rate live mu­sic and book read­ings into the space in the near fu­ture.

With re­gard to the beans, T.O.’s Hale Cof­fee and Las Chi­cas (based out of St. Thomas, Ont.) are on of­fer for espresso-based bev­er­ages and drip cof­fee. Spiffier sips in­clude the Span­ish latte, which is made with con­densed milk.

Pas­tries from Pe­tite Thuet (think dan­ishes, crois­sants and muffins) are on of­fer along with chef Bran­dyn Koester’s sal­ads and sam­mies for any­one look­ing for a heartier nosh (Bob Cof­fee Bar, 440 Christie St.).
