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…

Arctic Bites

Long Waits, but Creamy, Cold Ice Cream When my mom was downtown she was strolling through Instagram and came across a bunch of photos of beautifully rolled ice cream in colourful arrays and she was tempted to go and try it out. Being the great daughter I am (haha), I decided to skip my workout…

L’Espresso Bar Mercurio

Cute and Artsy for Foodie Lovers My best friend texted me yesterday and asked if I wanted to come try out this new place, and how could I say no?! Today, on a rainy day after class, I met up with her and we made an excursion to L’Espresso Bar Mercurio, located just outside the…

Bicerin Expresso Bar

Baldwin Expresso  Back once again with a new post on my visit to a particular expresso bar on Baldwin. The Bicerin Expresso Bar is a small cafe situated in Baldwin Village – an area I make frequent visits to mostly due to its close proximity to campus. This was a first year visit with one of…

Neo Coffee Bar

Coffee First! Coffee and anything that has to do with it, is probably my most favourite beverage and topic in the food world. It is the one thing that starts my day, and even helps me through all the stressful finals and midterms the University of Toronto has thrown at me. Call me a coffee…

Butter Avenue

Fancy Desserts This was a visit I made with a friend of mine during my first year at UofT. An eager first year trying to explore the city as much as I can with good company, and finding the best presentation of foods for, what other than perfect pictures for documenting?! Call me a foodie…
