The owner of the coffee shop at Grinder Coffee wanted to promote Ryan Gosling being in town for his film First Man.
Gosling was in Toronto for the International Film Festival to promote the film.
Joelle Murray, the owner spent the week posting photos with a cardboard cutout of the actor, launching #ryanneedsgrinder across social media.
Eventually, this was picked up by local news organizations and finally Ryan Gosling picked upon it.
The Ontario-born actor stopped by the coffee shop for a drink!
How sweet is he?!
