What is a Board Game Cafe?

A Board Game Cafe is what it sounds like - A place that serves fantastic coffee and light food, and has a lot of board games. A LOT of board games. Our library has over 450 games.  We have games for children starting at age 3 and going up to adult only.  We have games that take 10 minutes and games that take 5 hours. We hold events every day of the week, so you can meet up with other people to play!

Check out our events page to find the night that’s right for you.


How does it work...

We charge $5 entry fee per person. Once you’re in you get to play as many games as you like for as long as you link. You can even leave and come back (subject to space availability).

Our Story

Ryan and Hanna were vacationing in Toronto in 2014 and stumbled upon a board game cafe they fell in love with the idea of owning a place that combined our favorite things - Coffee, board games, more coffee, and friends. The name Hawkwood comes from one of Ryan’s long-running D&D characters, Sir Albion Hawkwood. He wanted to name the cafe after something personal, but also related to games.......Hawkwood Game Cafe was born.
