Its aesthetic is unparalleled for a café in the Riverdale area, all thanks to the brilliant eyes behind Pencil interior design.
Covered in salmon-coloured leather and marble, antique-looking gold fixtures, and gorgeous retail shelves on white wooden walls, Dineen Outpost is the perfect rustic getaway from the last bits of winter.
The front seating area boasts ceiling-high windows – a reconstruction of the windows at original location in the Dineen Building – that let in plenty of sunlight and none of the cold.
But the gorgeous interior isn’t what keeps people coming back. When you’re at Dineen Outpost, you’re in great company.
If the place isn’t buzzing with friendly locals who are catching up over olives and Old Fashioned’s or families grabbing baguette sandwiches on the go, the baristas are always welcoming and eager to strike up a conversation. You’ll recognize them by their uniforms: a periwinkle blue blouse, red suspenders and a warm smile.
It’s no wonder Dineen Outpost is quickly becoming a hotspot for Riverdale and other surrounding neighbourhoods.
