coffee, downtown toronto

Since I moved to Toronto from Montreal I've been missing coffee. Starbucks is my new best friend, but there has to be better than that. I'm particularly into lattes, whole milk! I like the little place beside Casa Acoreana in Kensington market, and Ideal Coffee. Any other coffee secrets out there?

  1. Lettieri has pretty good lattes. There are a number of locations. I go to the one on Front St. Near St. Lawrence Market sometimes. I also find the lattes at Pulp Kitchen on Queen East at Logan are very good. Haven't been yet but I hear there is a great coffee place in the Distillery District called the Green Merchants of Coffee.

      The Merchants of Green Coffee are not in the Distillery, they are just off the DVP, between Dundas and Queen.

      I think the place you're thinking of in the Distillery District is Balzac's, which is lovely.

    2. Jet Fuel at 519 Parliament, just north of Carlton (I think), serves a nice latte in tall glasses, not cups. Very limited--no fancy flavours. Great neighbourhood vibe.

      1. Dark Horse on Queen St E is a great spot, just west of Broadview.

          1. B on queen just east of yonge has illy and great food and I miss coffee at olympico as well, but this is second best although a lot more expensive!
