There is no better place to be than in a cozy café, sipping on some delicious coffee, in the middle of fall. Also, there is a sense of adventure that comes with finding new hidden gems cafés you’ve never been to before. Here are the top three cafés for fall in Toronto that you should cozy up in this season.
1.Page One Cafe & Bar
Located on Mutual Street, Page One is the perfect café to study, unwind – with a cup of coffee or beer, eat a healthy meal (or grab it for on the go) or indulge in a wide variety of baked goods.
The Café, located just off of Ryerson’s campus, is a perfect place for all students or anyone in the area to go for a caffeine boost, work break or study session.
The ambience, low lights and antique decorations add to the calm, relaxed vibe of the café. The service is always exceptional – the staff are super friendly and inviting.
On nice days, they have witty chalkboard signs set up at the corner of the street, promoting different products and encouraging people to check out their place and featured items.
The shop is big and spacious with study tables at the front and a couch/lounge area at the back.
The coffee is delicious and the extensive drink menus along with the free WiFi are a nice bonus.
2.Sam James Coffee Bar – Park Shop
Sam James Coffee Bar is located on the south side of Queen Street West across from the Trinity Bellwoods Park. The shop is small with no tables – but feels spacious because of its vibrancy and liveliness. Customers are welcome to sit on benches along the wall of the café.
The shop only takes cash – but the coffee is reasonably priced for its quality. The cappuccinos do not disappoint!
Baked goods and treats are in stock daily – each with its own label that matches the font and style of the menu featured above the cash.
The staff are helpful, friendly and accommodating. It is the best place to enjoy your morning or afternoon coffee in a warm, welcoming space with a peaceful view.
Despite it being fashion-forward and keeping up with the times – in terms of existing through the “Gluten free” and “health food” craze eras – Almond Butterfly is much more than an allergy friendly bakery.
You can feel the cozy atmosphere the second you enter the shop. The staff are cheery and warm, making you feel welcome and at home.
Besides the delicious array and variety of gluten free, dairy free and soy free treats, the coffee is excellent.
What better way to spend a weekend in fall than enjoying guilt-free goodies and sipping on high quality espresso?
