ISO: Free WiFi and a good latte in Kensington Market

mainja May 12, 2009 09:46 AM

So, I have to be in Kensington Market today for an appointment, but I would like to get some work done beforehand.

Normally I go to Jet Fuel for my free wifi and latte fix, but today I'm looking for somewhere in Kensington Market.

Preferably near the corner of Nassau and Bellevue.

    Aspetta on Augusta below Baldwin has good coffee and wifi -- assuming they are still open.

      Always lots of laptoppers in Moonbean, so I assume they have wifi, but I'm not sure. Maybe they're all novelists working offline!

      Another good wireless option nearby is the Red Room on Spadina just a tad south of College. They have coffee, espressos, wine, and beer and a wide variety of food. None of it is super spectacular but it's decent and the prices are ridiculously cheap. Best of all it has a very relaxed vibe and you can spend hours clicking away on your laptop or reading a book and nobody will give you a second glance.

        The Moonbean DOES NOT have wi-fi. It's tough to get a table in there most days without wi-fi so I understand why they would opt out of wi-fi

        The 3 main coffee spots in the market are Pennylicks, Louie's or Moonbeam - I don't know if any of them have free wi-fi, though. You're just a few blocks from Manic, though, and it will handily meet both your criteria.

          Close by is the new dark horse espresso bar (on spadina, north of queen on the east side).
          Its just a few steps from the market, and I am pretty sure they have WiFi. Everyone had their laptops out yesterday.
