Red Rocket Coffee

Red Rocket Coffee is the second installment of the popular barrier-free coffee shop in the Village. Although it lacks the wide entrance way of its predecessor, the indoor ambiance and customer service more then makes upfor it.

The coffee shop is on the quieter end of the Danforth on a wide sidewalk. There is a 2 inch step to the 35 inch wide front door and no automatic button, so anyone with a power chair would need assistance with the door. The staff at the Red Rocket There is a small outdoor patio that unfortunately is a tad too crowded with chairs to accommodate any mobility device.

Inside, however, the floor surfaces are level and all routes to the ordering counter and washroom are unobstructed. There are several standard height tables to sit at and a cozy area in the front of the cafe where you can read in front of the fireplace :) There is a large, CLEAN accessible washroom at the back of the shop that is approximately 72x72 inches, has a door frame 32 inches wide and 2 grab bars. No automatic features were noticed.

Although there is Greenwood subway station nearby, it is not accessible. The closest stop would be the newly renovated Pape station approximately four blocks away. There is free parking on the street on Sundays and several above ground parking lots if driving.
