      You're likely thinking of Cafe Pamenar. The espresso-based coffee is very good (haven't tried their brewed coffee yet) - I recognize one of the baristas there as having worked at Sam James in the past. The space is nice too (the poured concrete counter, the vintage bric-a-brac everywhere), and they have a very cute patio out back that's a nice escape from the chaos of Kensington Market.

        yes, that's the place! i tried their iced coffee but it was a bit too watered down with the ice (or do they add more water to it.. wasn't paying attention!).

        best iced coffee (not in the market) = white squirrel! still rich tasting, despite the cooling ice.
