    This is a standout cafe among the many that line Queen Street West nowadays. You can't really go wrong with anything, they've got all sorts of contraptions so experiment. Food is nonexistent though.

    The chai latte and the cappuccino are really good!!! Try the caramel salted brownie, so delicious! Also it is a good place to work or study!

    We got the eggs benny, chili eggs (sorry I forgot to take a pic of that), and sides of avocado and halloumi. Everything was absolutely delicious!!The latte and black coffee we got were great as well!

    Matcha tonic is a delicious summer alternative for your caffeine fix. Also features the most gorgeous avocado toast I’ve ever seen 💕

    A very urban hipster type coffee shop. The white walls and high ceiling scream modern. A great place if you want to work alone. Do not recommend sitting near the entrance on a cold day.

    Friendly staff. Crazy contraptions. Plenty of seating space. And free wi-fi! All chilled drinks served to stay are served in a Mason jar. Neat!

    Had iced chai tea latte. More milky than expected, but nevertheless it was tasty. Very good place to work, but be an 'earlybird' b/c seats fill up fast!

    The Americano was amazing, seriously, smooth and awesome. Avocado toast was incredible.

    Everything is delicious and decor is great but be wary of the tiny 11$ juice.. It's not worth it in quantity or quality. Prices not listed anywhere and this seemed rather excessive to me.

    Great cafe that also has beer and wine and if you like avocado toast, definitely give it a try.

    Not a coffee lover? Try the London Fog with almond milk. It is delicious, and perfect on a coooooold day ;)

    Decent portion of avocado, quite nourishing breakfast, but pricey for the toast. Place looks like a “mainstream” for making a good photo for Instagram :D

    Nice urban hipster feel. The lattes are a bit on the bitter side. Nice place to get some work done.

    Coffee and sweets are good, but the service is so frickin terrible. The unfriendly staff makes me want to go to one of the million other great coffee shops in the area.

    Overly sweet iced mocha with too much milk. Should use a dark chocolate with more emphasis on the espresso.
