Saskatoon’s Two Twenty comes to life with the opening of Collective Coffee

Collective Coffee, the latest addition to the Riversdalebusiness district opened its doors yesterday to become the first operating tenant at Saskatoon’s Two Twenty.

Located at 220 20th Street West, this charming little coffee stop immediately comes off as a fun place to be. With just four tables and a stand up bar, fifteen people feels like a party, and hey, who doesn’t want to be at a party?

We met warm and friendly people on both sides of the amazing service counter that’s constructed of salvaged pickle wood from the former vinegar factory and beautifully framed in steel strapping that was reclaimed from the old Toon’s Kitchen dumbwaiter.  Darkly stained fir wall panels, steel I-beam shelving and a display of local art complete this collection of Saskatoon treasures.

Floor to ceiling windows along the south side of the shop welcome the sun for a good part of the day and the overhead door will provide a great connection to additional sidewalk seating for at least half of the year.

Naturally, espresso, macchiato, cappuccino, latte, coffee and tea are all on the menu and were served up by a couple of baristas who actually seem to understand that a warm smile is the perfect compliment to a hot coffee.  An impressive offering of baked goods from breakfast cookies to pumpkin and chocolate chip bread was also available.

Overall, Collective Coffee is a pretty cool addition to the Riversdale neighbourhood. Take a few minutes to check it next time you're in the area or downtown.
