New in TO from Mtl-any places to watch sports (tennis) with espresso/nosh that are not bars??

Hiya hounds,

Moved to Toronto on Saturday (for the next 8 months) and am happy to have y'all to turn to for recs and such. Am near the corner of Bathurst and Bloor and have already eaten/had espresso at the following: Sushi on Bloor/New Gen/Drake hotel/Grapefruit Moon/Lady Marmalade/Dark Horse/Mercury/Manic. Phew...this morning I am looking for a place to watch some US open tennis perhaps with an espresso and sandwich. Basically an Italian cafe with screens or something similar. Have car...will travel if I must. Suggestions?

  1. Too late now, but the only place that springs to mind is B Espresso Bar. But I don't know if they actually show sports on those screens. It's been a while since I've gone. The other way to go is to cruise little italy!

      Il gato negro at 720 college St. is a great spot for espresso and the US open.
      I know from experience.
      OK...I had a cappucino and not an espresso.
      p.s sometimes they are known to have soccer on the tv but you can ask to have it changed.
      Also...safari on avenue road will let you watch the US open.
      Here's to the last week of watching tennis.
