It’s time to celebrate the father figure in your life! We invite you to spend the day in Bloor-Yorkville discovering our unique outdoor spaces while connecting with loved ones. This year’s Father’s Day Gift Guide is filled with ways to create extra-special memories, and heartfelt gifts to help celebrate those you love the most.
The Perfect Gift Ideas for Father’s Day
Pilot Coffee Roasters at Home Gear
Kick-off the day by heading to Pilot Coffee Roasters at the Manulife Centre. Not only does this Toronto staple make the perfect espresso, but they also sell their professional quality equipment. From pour-over kettles to single-serve options, grinders, and more, there’s a variety of tools to impress the most particular of coffee-loving fathers.
Plus, Pilot Coffee also hosts live online classes teaching you how to make the perfect brew from home! Classes include interactive teaching, a Q&A, and an introduction to specialty coffee and equipment. We think this would be an extra special way to spend time with family, while also honing some new caffeine skills.

The Oxley Patio Dinner
The Oxley is currently accepting both brunch and dinner reservations on their three patios for Father’s Day (subject to Provincial reopening guidelines). Serving British-inspired dishes using classic French and European techniques, The Oxley has been a go-to for locals for over 8 years. The cozy townhouse and welcoming staff make guests feel right at home creating the perfect Father’s Day environment.
If you prefer to grab and go, The Oxley also offers BBQ takeout from Thursday-Sunday every week. If you opt for takeout, we recommend taking advantage of one of our many outdoor spaces and make it a picnic!
