      He's a barista. Was at Manic. Is now at Dark Horse on Spadina. Pulls a wicked shot of espresso. And is the nicest guy. Happy for him.

        And also of Hanks where he was praised by many - including Jamie Kennedy himself - as one of the best baristas in town.

        I'll be really excited when this opens up.

        This guy pulls the best shot in the city and what's best is that he's just the nicest possible guy. I hope he opens soon. I will be a regular customer.
