Lattes/Cappucino made with rice/almond milk - downtown Toronto

TOchowgal Jun 19, 2009 06:11 AM

Looking for coffee places that make lattes, cappucino etc with rice/almond milk in downtown Toronto.

I am trying to cut down on my dairy and try to have it once or twice per week. I don;t mind having it in my food once in a while but I do need my daily latte.

    Fresh by Juice for Life makes rice or soy milk lattes...there are three locations but if you need a first thing in the morning coffee, they might not open until 11am.

      Is soy milk not an option as a substitute? You will have better luck with that. Star bucks/Second Cup both have soy milk.

      Nook on king, just west of Spadina also uses soy milk.

      I have never seen any other place use rice/almond. You might have to carry in your own supply

        I have a soy insentivity unfortunately. I do eat it once in a while, maybe 2-3 times per month but I can't have it everyday.

        you could try taking in your own almond milk if you know how much of it you need. For example: Take a cup of almond milk to Starbucks ask for just an espresso. Then dump the espresso into a mug , stir and sip

        Unfortunately, this would not work for a cappuccino unless your barista doesn't mind using the milk you give them and they aren't to busy.

          Mylk Uncookies at 253 Gerrard Street East makes a spectacular almond milk latte. They make their own almond milk too! The desserts are also dairy and gluten free and wonderful.

            Not downtown, but, Red Bean Espresso (High Park)?

            I think the place on Augusta in Kensington Market offers almond milk, etc.. It is called "Grind house"


            Not sure what you consider "downtown" though and maybe too far from the area you are looking for.
