New Website

It’s been some time since my last post (and that’s quite an understatement). Thanks to the hard working creative folks at Lucid Digital Media (LDM) we have a new look, and a promise from me to keep content more fresh (I guess I’ve been preoccupied with keeping the coffee fresh instead of the website, but don’t worry, that commitment won’t slip as we get into the site updates).

As we return to activity here we’ll have a calendar of events up, and before long an ecommerce section.

I hope we can get you to check back in from time to time. In the meantime we’ve been more active on our social media, and you can always see us at one of these:

·  See us on Facebook

·  Follow @MonigramCoffee on twitter

·  See us on Instagram

I look forward to any feedback, or to seeing you in real life at the shop.



Charity Photo Shoot – Portraiture Extraordinaire

We’re thrilled to post about a great event this Saturday (October 26th) in aid of “From Ainsley”.

“From Ainsley” supports the legacy of Ainsley Cooper for Toronto Sick Kids, and Bassem Photo will be offering a charity photo shoot in our upstairs. From Bassem’s blog:

“Their goal is to raise 365 toys – one toy representing each day of the year. Just as Ainsley was a gift to us all and gave us a true sense of joy for 109 days, these toys will do the same everyday for children who need them.”

Bassem has an amazing talent and portfolio of photography, and wants to take your picture on Saturday. The catch? Bring a toy and get a photo.

The details:

  1. The family photo drop-in session is on October 26, 2013 from 1pm-4pm. It is on a first come, first serve basis.
  2. One photo per toy. If you would like more than one photo, you just need to bring another toy
  3. All toys will go directly to “From Ainsley” to support patients of The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, ON.
  4. Please visit to see a guideline for the types of toys that can/can’t be donated.
