Crema coming to Danforth

Walked by the former Sweet Tooth location today and the windows were papered up with a sign announcing a new Crema cafe on its way. Danforth could use some coffee shops beyond Starbucks -- happy to see this!

    We already have Timothy's and Second Cup, Iliada, Cafe Frappe, and a few others. So we already have more than Starbucks.

    Iliada Cafe

      Iliada is already gone, soon to be replaced with Pizza Libretto

        Timothy's, Second Cup and Cafe Frappe have run of the mill coffee. If it's like the Crema in the Junction, that would be great (I don't like the one on Bloor). In a different league from the others. The only good coffee in that area is Broadview Espresso (which is great, not just good). I like the idea of Crema coming to that location.

          If you're at the other end of the Danforth The One in The Only has great coffee. But I'm also looking forward to Crema.

      How is Crema? Is it good coffee? Noticed a new one at Richmond and Spadina and considered going there this morning but went to Starbucks instead out of habit. Is it worth trying? Better than Gourmand?

        I don't usually buy coffee unless I am in a restaurant as I roast my own, but I'm curious what the other who posted here think of Crema. Looks like they didn't think enough of it to post anything.

          Actually, I also roast my own beans, but when I am out and about the only place I will go to for a cappucino is Crema. Their coffee is amazing and if you look at their website you will see that the planning and care that goes into their coffee is something else (water filtered a couple of ways and remixed to create the optimal combination of minerals, burr grinder blades changed every few months and on and on).

          It sure shows in the product. Starbucks is absolutely no comparison.
