The Flying Pony Cafe

Mixed-Use Coffee Shop, Art Gallery, and Residence in Little India

The Flying Pony is a mixed-use cafe, gallery, studio, and residence for artist Andrew Horne. The renovation and addition of the historic building fuses the artist’s life and work with the street life of Little India. The cafe fronting Gerrard St. is open and welcoming to lovers of coffee, literature, and art. As one moves deeper into the building, they progress through and up a heirarchy of spaces, starting with a private gallery and group room, the residence, and the studio.
