Three skilled entrepreneurs have galvanized their resources, partnering to create Bojan’s Cafe.
Bojan Todorov is the building owner from Southern Ontario. Maria Harrison has extensive management experience, planning the design and operations of the cafe. Mitchell Argue is the owner of Sleeping Giant BNB, and Urban North Property Services.
Argue says the cafe is a result of encouragement from locals and businesses in the area.
“The opportunity arose with our business partner, Bojan, who had the space available to start a new business in a prime location.” Argue said, who operates boutique hotels and vacation rentals in the area.
“We really want to promote our fresh breakfast and lunch meals at a reasonable price. The highlight of the cafe is the large space and unique design which allows customers to comfortably connect with friends over coffee and food.”
So far their most popular offerings have been their fresh made sandwich specials, and breakfast tortillas. Local bakeries supply their pastries, the Cinnamon Swirls from 5-Star Bakery and cookies from Marvellous Makings have been favourites.
Several gluten-friendly and vegan alternatives, such as chia seed pudding, cheesecake and gluten-friendly tortillas are available too.
Bojans Cafe offers a bright, luminous location for socializing over lunch or getting some online work done. In the future they plan to use the large space to also include local vendor displays and host local events.
The revitalization of the Cumberland St historic buildings is a welcome sight. Bojan’s Cafe is a dynamic addition to the downtown of Port Arthur.
Visit them at 30 Cumberland Street S., where they are open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m to 4 p.m., and Saturday & Sunday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
