68 Shuter Street, Toronto, ON, M5B 1Y4
Mast Coffee is a bright new coffee house located at 68 Shuter Street. Their drink menu is limited and to-the-point which allows them to focus on the quality of their offerings. There is also a small selection of tasty baked goods – sweet and savoury!
Mast Coffee’s threshold-free entrance is equipped with an accessible push button to allow for easy entry and also offers ample space to park mobility devices outside the shop. The curb cut was under construction during our visit; however, a neighbouring driveway allowed access to the sidewalk which was well-maintained and smooth.
Inside the venue, there was an assortment of seating options. There were two sections of high top tables and stools, as well as standard height tables with a combination of removable chairs and bench seating. The ambiance was comfortable and had a cozy feel on the cold day we visited. The space was well lit thanks to the large windows and the music was at a reasonable level. The menu above the cash register was easy to read and had good contrast (white font on black background) and the staff were more than willing to provide recommendations on what to order. Mobile order and pick-up is offered for those on-the-go.
The accessible private restroom features both a lever handle and an automatic door opener to enter. The toilet has one grab bar on the side at 30” high and another grab bar behind the toilet at 38” high. Located next to the toilet was a hook for hanging a coat or other belongings. The sink was 27” high with soap and paper towels located next to the sink.
