ISO Unpretentious, modestly-priced coffee shop with WiFi near Yonge & Carlton

I have a friend in need. The local Second Cup and Coffee Zone have both closed. Starbucks is disliked. Bulldog prices are too high. Anybody know of a place where you can drink and work for a few hours at a time?

          cafe M is fine, but I actually like the drip coffee at crepe it up at church and wellesley. and when I ask for soy milk they'll steam it up for me too, which is a nice touch. they have wi-fi but admittedly the last couple of times I've had some connection issues. well priced crepes is a bonus.

            This won't help, but since it's in the same area - the best coffee in Toronto is Fahrenheit, period.

            The problem is the seating, as there are only a few barstools. But the cortados, cappucinos and lattes are usually epic.
