Strings Café is a community space in the heart of the Old East Village where music and those interested in learning, growing and sharing are welcome. We are part coffee shop, part live music venue & part guitar shop with a great collection of instruments and gear. We also we offer in house lessons and repairs while you wait. 

Strings Café & Guitar shop is a local Canadian owned Ma & Pa shop operated by Phil Kikuchi, a seasoned musician, teacher and repairman with over 30 years of experience. Phil’s vision in creating the shop was to combine the love of music and musical instruments with community, a place where people could come together and share their talent, time and a cup of coffee. 

Strings Café hosts regular Open Mics and Performances by amazing local talent from London and surrounding areas. Come down and have a cup of cappuccino and participate in our impromptu musical happenings.

Phil is awesome. After going to this guitar store I won't go anywhere else. Wise, caring, honest, great selection of products. I can't say enough good things. The place truly is a hidden gem on Dundas.

I've been wanting to buy a guitar for some time now and I was thrilled to see a small, family owned shop...! The staff were very friendly and helpful.  Very positive experience, would recommend this shop for all your guitar essentials...!
