Red Rocket Coffee on the Danforth

I've really gotten to love this little spot, which has new owners (whatever ties it had with Three's Company look to be fully severed),

Really good sandwiches which for now are made once a day and sell out quickly. Delicious baked goods ranging from almost healthy (oatmeal bars and muffins) to the clearly decadent.

Free WiFi. An essential for me in a cafe space, and they have it!

For those that care, it is also now licensed to sell alcohol. Wine, beer, cider. Not a huge selection, but there are other places nearby to go if you want to scratch your snooty connoisseur itch.

Decor has been revamped a bit to meet the red theme, nothing overpowering but accents on the tables, candles, etc.

Friendly staff, great coffee, and the owners seem to really care about the space, and their customers.

Plus it is open until 10 on Fridays and Saturdays! Finally, a late night coffee place in this neighbourhood that isn't Coffee Time.

This is my new go-to cafe.
