Our History

Slanted Door cafe art gallery was established in 2018 by Patrick Jabbaz who shared a passion for both coffee and art. He saw a need for a space that brought together these two worlds, and so he created the Slanted Door cafe art gallery. Since opening its doors, the cafe has become a popular destination for both locals and tourists alike. With its cozy atmosphere and ever-changing art displays, the Slanted Door has become a beloved staple of the community. The cafe is committed to supporting local artists and offering a unique and welcoming space for all to enjoy.

Our Name

During his time living in San Francisco, Patrick developed a fondness for a Vietnamese fusion restaurant called “The Slanted Door.” When it came time to name his new gallery in Toronto, Patrick developed a list of 10 potential names, including “The Emerging Artists Café.” He eventually landed on a sharp, catchy name that would appeal to the general public and pay homage to his personal history: “Slanted Door.”
