Ultimate Coffee Guide to Downtown Toronto!

December 12, 2017

Coming from Melbourne, I am a big coffee nut and can’t go a day without consuming a descent cup, I love not only the smell of a freshly poured espresso but also the general atmosphere of being in a café. Coming to Toronto, I was on a desperate search to find a great coffee and get my daily caffeine hit. At first, I’d stumble across places such as Starbucks, Timmy Hortons and Second Cup and be absolutely gutted with what they had to offer, I wanted a barista who appreciates the effort it takes to make a great coffee.

The more I searched and chatted to locals, I began to realise there are so many places in Toronto that serve a ripper coffee. Not only that, I also found some funky/interesting cafe’s, some great places to sit down and enjoy your coffee and other places to grab a coffee on the go! No matter what you’re after and where you are in Toronto, you’ll find the perfect coffee.
