Goldstar Cafe Grand Opening in Downtown Oakville – April 8, 2015
The Goldstar Cafe had its Grand Opening celebration last week on April 8, 2015. The Goldstar Cafe is open in Downtown Oakville at 350 Lakeshore Rd Oakville in the east end of Downtown Oakville.
The Grand Opening celebration was well attended by Mayor Rob Burton, local town councillors and many local residents, yours truly included. The cafe was decked out in gold and white balloons and entertained a full house offering a delicious erray of their food and baked goods, coffes, espresso and teas. Mayor Burton was even surprised with a personal birthday cake and a lovely rendition of Happy Birthday by the string quartet that played throughout the festivities.
In addition, Goldstar Cafe donated its proceeds from the first official day of business to ArtHouse – a local organization founded by Oakville resident Don Pangman that aims to promote the arts in Oakville & Burlington. ArtHouse provides greater accessibiliy and innovative, cost-free extra-curricular arts programs led by professional instructors for children aged 7-12. Children, who otherwise would not be able to participate in such rich, creative and cultural programs. (Stay tuned for a separate piece on ArtHouse shortly.)
This new cafe offers organic coffees, espresso and a wide selection of teas. I love tea so I took the opportunity to try their dairy free, organic chai lattee with coconut milk. It was amazing, the chai tea was rich but not too bold and I loved the creaminess of the coconut milk. I’ve also had their green tea latte with coconut milk – also a must try.
I spoke breifly to their head chef Al, who I will be talking more in depth with in the near future and giving more information about their food which is all aimed at fresh, whole ingredients and overall a healthier eating choices, especially when it comes to cafes. They are setting themselves apart in this category.
The Goldstar Cafe offers a spacious, airy and bright environment which is a pleasant change from the tighter experience of some of the other Downtown Oakville cafes and coffee houses. There is a second floor, mezzanine level with additional comfortable seating as well making it a great place to meet for business or to just relax on your own with a book or to catch up with friends.
If you haven’t had a chance yet, head Downtown Oakville and try the Goldstar Cafe and let me know what you think. Enjoy some more photos from the Grand Opening of the Goldstar Cafe below.
