Black Bear Espresso

Many times, my boyfriend and I have passed by this little coffee shop on Carlton Street called Black Bear Espresso, and one day we finally found ourselves going there to try out what they have to offer in the midst of our midterm/assignments/projects fast approaching.  This café was a hidden gem on Carlton Street amidst the…

Le Gourmand

Cafés have become a norm within the city, so it’s difficult to find a nice, cozy one to enjoy a nice cup of coffee and a little pastry of the sort. I was lucky to visit Le Gourmand which was nearby where I’m current residing with my older brother, who recommended this little café for me…

Jimmy’s Coffee

Found on McCaul street, this snug little cafe is known as Jimmy’s Coffee and has been a trendy place to be for awhile in Toronto. I had come here once before, but never gotten a chance to document my visit here.  Inside it was fully packed – all the tables available were taken by customers enjoying…

Snakes and Lattes College

Bringing people together in coffee shop settings over board games, Snakes and Latte College is a phenomenal environment for patrons looking for all the fun board games they could dream of, and a coffee to sip on. I’ve heard a lot of great things about board game cafés and it was not a disappointment! We were greeted…

Cafe Crepe

It had been some time sine I’ve visited a place for dessert – and that’s particularly because I’m not too much of a fan of excessive sweets. However, I could not say no to Cafe Crepe when I decided to go with my friend after dinner one day. Crepes always remind me of times in Paris…

Tot The Cat Cafe

Foodie utopia and… animals? Foodie utopia bringing to you a rather cute (and fluffy) experience one afternoon, featuring some furry kitties, a cup of coffee and a muffin to go with it. Coffee shops in the city have recently introduced animals coming from animal shelters to house in their facilities, in hopes of providing these…

Dineen Coffee Co.

It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged about Toronto’s very own coffee shops. Another goal for me this summer is to blog more about the distinct cafe spots that you can explore, so you can skip that boring cup of Starbucks or Timmy’s and settle in a more pleasurable cafe experience with a quality cup of coffee,…

Light Café

Light Café is a Taiwanese inspired café offering a great selection of different foods and drinks with a gourmet feel and a contemporary twist. It’s located in Baldwin Village – an area that I have become very fond of because of its close proximity to campus as well as the great variety of choices for…

Holt’s Cafe

In the heart of Holt Renfrew on Bloor Street – a hidden gem for a fancy appetite can be found. Despite making frequent visits to Holt Renfrew back when I used to live in Yorkville, I have never discovered Holt’s Cafe until my company made this suggestion over a chat message. Willingly, one Monday evening we…

Sorry Coffee Co.

“Sorry” for disappearing for some time Foodie Utopians! Also, “sorry” for this horrific pun (okay I’m finished, “sorry”) No seriously, I’m done now. Eager to hop back into my blogging again, a friend made a suggestion to visit Sorry Coffee Co. – a small, modern yet chic cafe where coffee lovers and any morning drinker alike…

Millie Creperie

Japanese and French Fusion Dessert Millie Creperie was a secluded section in Kensington Market that caught my eye during many of my visits there because of their beautiful display of colourful crepe selections they had displayed on a poster sized menu right on their window. One day, I decided to make my visit to Millie Creperie…

Dark Horse Expresso Bar

Hipster Cafe on Spadina Living downtown, I have made many trips – whether that’s on foot or in my parent’s car – and passed by the large expresso bar that was called Dark Horse. Each time I have passed by, it’s always decently crowded and its big, bright windows seemed to be inviting me to…
