About Us

Mulberry Street Coffeehouse opened its doors on August 9th 2010. Since then we have been serving our Hamilton community as high quality coffee slingers,  a unique event space, and purveyors of addictive delicious baked goods.


The History of Our Building


Our Building was built in 1887 by its original owner, Thomas Allen, a builder by profession.

In 1906 the building was expanded. the commercial space fronting James St. North was converted into a hotel lobby and drinking establishment, and the building commenced its existence as ‘Armory Hotel’. Its main clients of the day were the armed forces officers and their families from the Armory facilities directly across James St. North.

Original plaster ceiling medallions have been maintained and enhanced in the former hotel lobby i.e where you get your coffee. Check out our original inlaid tile work in the floor of the cafe.

Marcus Starr Live at Mulberry


Marcus Starr's debut album 'Going To Muscle Shoals (produced by Brock Zeman) displays both his Southern musical influences and his deep connection to authentic roots music. With songs such as Fell In Mud, Let My Blues Take Your Blues Away and Going To Muscle Shoals, it comes as no surprise that Marcus Starr is emerging as a compelling and rousing guitarist-songwriter who is finding his place amongst the great roots musicians, past and present.

Marcus has been an avid player on Southern Ontario's music scene having played lead guitar with Radio Free Universe for six years (2010-2016) and has earned a reputation as being an exciting and dynamic performer and guitarist. During this time, however, Marcus had always made clear his love for roots, blues and funk/jam music with the various side projects he performed with.

Currently, Marcus Starr has been performing solo acoustic shows and with The Marcus Starr Band where his passion and knowledge of roots and Americana music are joyfully displayed to eager audiences. Diving deep into roots, blues, groove and alt-country-with a side of pure unadulterated rock n roll, Marcus Starr's music offers something uniquely special and will leave his audience hungry for more.

There is a place where all the elements of roots music can meet and flourish and it is a powerful and compelling place to be. This is a place Marcus Starr's music will take its listeners to.

Jimmy Pearson Live at Mulberry


It must be humble, sincere, crunchy and organic if it’s a song by Toronto Based Alt-Folk artist Jimmy Pearson. As a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, Jimmy strives to connect with thoughtful audiences through songs that celebrate the pathetic and awkward facets of life. 

 

Jimmy released his debut EP Good Friends in November of 2015. Working with producer John Switzer, Good Friends was able to become an honest and whimsical musical soundscape, defiant of any one genre. 

 

After touring southern Ontario extensively since the release of Good Friends, Jimmy Embarked on his first cross Canada tour in the summer of 2017. From coast to coast Jimmy entertained crowds of various sizes and demographics, shining a very promising light on the young artist's future.
