A roundup of our favourite coffee shops in Toronto

May 18, 2017
Oatbox visits the best coffee shops in Toronto

A month ago, we had the chance to enjoy Toronto's beautiful weather while we discovered the city's remarkable coffee scene. Our getaway left us a little jealous, but especially amazed by all the great and diverse places we visited. Here are our favourite spots in the Canadian metropolis!


Fika

We had heard so much about a magical-looking place with hundreds of books stacked high on the walls, and we just had to see it with our own eyes. Hiding inside the Kensington market, right next to Cocktail Emporium’s pink building, we discovered this charming little place nestled in the middle of a bustling district, especially during Summer. Definitely a must stop!

Neo Coffee Bar

This is probably our favourite spot on the list, thanks to its gorgeous industrial decor. There are spacious booths perfect for friendly meetings, and the choice of an array of fabulous cakes. If matcha is your thing, this is truly the perfect spot for you!

Safe House

We spotted on Instagram this café’s beautiful wall tiles and we had to see them for ourselves. Located on the corner of Dundas and Brock, the place has speakeasy vibes since it still exhibits the sign of the store that occupied the premises a while ago. We stopped there for a cortado before exploring this lesser-known but super cute street!

Dineen Coffee Co.

Located in a beautiful historic building on the corner of Yonge Street, Dineen Coffee Co. is probably the busiest coffee shop in town. We couldn’t resist the beautiful yellow coffee machines and breathtaking decor. The place offers unique coffee blends of all possible varieties so you’ll certainly find your match, whether you’re a strong coffee lover or you’re on the softer side!

Drake Coffee

We met the lovely blogger Margaux Zanetti in Drake Hotel’s small coffee shop where we had the most incredible brunch. You should definitely pay the place a visit and seize the opportunity to take a stroll down the street. You’ll want to stop at every cute shop that crosses your path!

Hailed Coffee

We entered Hailed Coffee to escape the rain and ended up staying for the insane pistachio croissants. The place offers a succulent Turkish coffee which is a refreshing take on the traditional latte. The service is friendly and although the place is quaint, it bathes in natural sunlight - and that’s what really counts!

Réunion

We went to Réunion for the unique floor tiles that spell ‘’coffee’’, as well as for their stunning view overlooking Roncesvalles Ave. We especially loved that coffee is the center of attention there, thanks to the impressive Modbar espresso equipment. We also fell in love with the kale and cheese scone, which you definitely have to try if you visit!

Rooster Coffee House on Jarvis

With now three addresses  in Toronto, Rooster is probably one of the best-known coffee shops in town and we completely fell for the recently opened location on Jarvis Street. Each shop has its own personality but with its industrial look, sophisticated furniture and incredible light, we think we found our favourite!
