If grabbing a cup of hot java at Hale Coffee was on your list when heading out to Square One in Mississauga, you will have to find somewhere else.

After five years of serving the community, the independent coffee roaster announced Tuesday (July 9) that it is closing its Square One Shopping Centre café.

The last day of operation will be Sunday, July 28.

“It’s with great disappointment that we announce the closing of our café at Square One,” said Ramzi Yanis, co-founder of Hale Coffee, one of the first indie cafes in the city, in a news release. “Since opening our doors in 2019, we have been honoured to serve the vibrant community of Mississauga, creating memorable experiences one cup of coffee at a time.

Hale Coffee has five locations across the Greater Toronto Area.

While wishing to express their “heartfelt gratitude” to all their patrons who have supported them through the years, the local café pointed out it’s looking to find a new location in Mississauga.

“While our time at Square One is coming to an end, this is not goodbye forever,” said Yanis. “We are exploring opportunities and hope to be back in Mississauga very soon. We are excited about the possibility of serving you again in the near future and continuing our journey together.”

Before it closes its Square One café, customers will be able to take advantage of limited-time offers, including three retail bags of coffee for $45, 10 per cent off five-pound bulk bags, and 100 customers will be given a month free on monthly coffee subscriptions.

Founded in 2013 in Toronto, the independent coffee roaster takes an innovative approach to sourcing, roasting, and brewing coffee.

Hale says all its coffee beans are “carefully” sourced from direct trade relationships with passionate coffee farmers from around the world. By doing this with regional farmers, it ensures they are being paid “fair” prices for their coffee and hard work.

Editor’s note: Hale will be closing on July 28, not July 18, as originally written. We regret the error.
