The café is popular among Instagrammers (#igerstoronto) for its iconic waffle wall/wavy grid shelf. Odin sits near the intersection where King and Queen Street come together on the east side of the city. High ceiling and minimalistic décor attract all kinds of designers, creative, and hipsters to the new café.
On the menu they have coffees, lattes, teas, pastries, and sandwiches. They also serve alcohol at night and they’re putting together a dinner menu. A lot of cafes steer towards the cozy, homey atmosphere with dark furnishings and moody lighting while Odin café is completely different. The Nordic-Canadian space features concrete pillars with white walls and geometric shapes. You can see splashes of geometry from their logo to their bar stools. This café definitely has an eye for good design and a refined taste.
I was boring and got Jasmine tea with a ginger molasses cookie and Sally for an iced coffee. My cookie was soft and chewy, just how I like it. We sat inside for a while admiring the architecture and décor of the space.
Odin also has a free board game night every first Tuesday of the month (6pm-10pm). Paul T., who’s also the creator behind Outer Earth, hosts the event. If you’re into board games, go check it out! If not, check out the space because it’s something to admire and appreciate.
