Hey Hounds. I am DYING for gourmet coffees and cappucinos and lattes ... speciality coffees, I guess ... and after moving to this location, I cant seem to find a nearby location to help my fix. Theres a Tim Horton's at the corner of Brittania and Hurontario, but thats not what I'm looking for either. Is there a Second Cup, or Starbucks, or Timothy's.. or an independent coffee place nearby that anyone know of? Theres regular coffee within our building, but its not that great!!!

    I like brewing some Kicking Horse Coffee when I'm at home. You can find it at Zehr's now i think.

      There's a Second Cup at Hurontario and Eglinton, south-east corner in that plaza where there's a big Food Basics, and a Kinkos. I've not tried that particular outlet, but I have found that Second Cup, although my favourite for coffee, between the different outlets, is inconsistent. The one in Streetsville, I find to be good. The one in Port Credit, not so good, and the few times I was at the one on Mavis, south of Burnhamthorpe, at Central Parkway, the service was terrible. There may be a coffee place in that smaller plaza on the north-east corner of Eg-Hurontario. It'd be worth a look see, and check out the quality. I'd be interested to hear what you find about other cafes in the area.

        Violabratsche covered the waterfront.Real estate realities structure the coffee shortage: there's no street frontage or cheap strip mall space in your area(Orlando owns it all nearly!).All I can suggest is little Lazio Bakery at Heritage Hills+Eglinton--your basic Italian bakery with espresso bar+hot table+sandwiches+deli but no sit-down area. It's a short drive away. The Second Cup at Hurontario+Eglinton is so-so for product+service.
