BALZAC’S COFFEE ROASTERS

Not much of a coffee scene near Niagara Falls, what is it with Canadians and cheap coffee. I have always wondered how Tim Horton’s got so famous, is it just because it is cheap, or is it because of it’s sugar water that has a hint of coffee and milk hence, double double…I am confident…

BLACK CAT ESPRESSO BAR

  A very cool looking coffee shop run by two young men. A very stylish looking place, lots of young people lounging around either on their electronics or just chill and talk.       I ordered another cortado ($3.25) along with shortbread ($2.50) made from traditional Irish recipe. The cortado a bit diluted, I think the taste…

ARCHTOP CAFE

The coffee culture in Mississauga, Ontario isn’t as big as downtown Toronto, it’s more difficult to find a good cup of coffee.  One of the more highly rated coffee house is called ARCHTOP Cafe located in the cute little community of Port Credit. This coffee shop was very highly rated 4/5 online, so I went…

SAM JAMES COFFEE POCKET

Is actually just a pocket within a cluster of shops, very easy to miss when looking for it in a car. This place has very limited selection from just coffee, to just 1 type of tea, and hot chocolate. It has a handful of drinks (9 items) on their menu. I ordered a small latte…

PILOT COFFEE ROASTERS

My last cup for the day before I get wired. This may sound like pure bs, but the shops really just gets better and better. Cortado ($3.25) again but this time it’s even better. Very strong espresso, flavourful and fresh with a sudden hit of creamy notes right in the middle leaving a sweet-ish creamy-ness…

FARENHEIT

Third shot of the day, VERY VERY CLOSE to what I was looking for. The taste is definitely there -cortado, except tasted a bit watered down with milk. Very interesting, when I ordered the cortado ($3.10) the barista asked me to choose my bean. I had three choices, with brief introduction of each one, finally…

CREMA

Very interesting end note, cortado with a twist!

LIT ESPRESSO BAR

A quaint indie coffee shop hidden in Roncesville Village, Toronto. Good coffee, great vibe!
