Toronto Travel Guide
Toronto City Guide
Though not as renowned for its coffee as it’s hippie/hipster Western cousin, Vancouver, Toronto has a great coffee scene. Being Canada’s biggest city and one of the most diverse in the world, it has a lot to offer. Here are a few of our picks.
Located Occupying the back of the Kit and Ace clothing store, Sorry stole our attention when we walked in and they had a Panama Geisha in the hopper. Unfortunately, this was a one-off event, as these beans were “leftovers” from a competition. Fine with us, as it was delicious. We also tried their blend, which was very good. The folks there seem to really know what they’re doing.
Tucked away in Toronto’s Yorkville neighborhood, Sorry Coffee can be hard to find. This tiny counter inside a used bookstore on Bloor (a few doors down from the Bata Shoe Museuem) serves up some great coffee. They tout themselves as the smallest coffee shop in the city, but that doesn’t mean it’s takeaway only. You can still get your coffee served in a real, ceramic mug and sit in a few tables they have outside (which we are not sure are there in winter). They had two single-origins on when we visited and had some beans of each in a glass vial for customers to smell. They serve Glitch coffee from Japan, which was a pleasant surprise.
Smack in downtown Toronto, on Spadina, is Quantum. The place is enormous and immaculate and has a good selection of beans.
