Sip a Signature Chai at The Roasted Boon, a New Cafe in Shaw

It’s so fitting that the huge Shaw mural is right outside The Roasted Boon. This new coffee shop is brewing love and lattes in the Shaw neighborhood, and is already a popular spot for its spacious seating areas and cool ambiance. And that’s before you even taste the drinks! The Roasted Boon is an Eritrean-owned coffee shop with drinks sourced from that region of East Africa as well as other fair-trade coops. Opt for a gorgeous spiced black tea or rich drip coffee, or more inventive blended drinks like the Shaw latte or signature chai. The Roasted Boon also has thick fruit smoothies, and a short-but-sweet food menu with items like pastries and quiche.

Many folks on Yelp also noted the exceptionally warm and friendly service at The Roasted Boon, plus the extra measures that the team is taking to keep patrons safe during the COVID crisis. The next time you’re passing through Shaw, grab a drink and support this locally-owned business.
