If you feel like trying out a new taste of coffee rather than getting your usual order, Boxcar Social is then the best place for you. With their great desire to provide a unique coffee experience for their guests, they change their menus week over week. Known as being a multi-roaster café in town, the shop has always been on the lookout for new discoveries of roasters.

Dark Horse Espresso Bar

Dark Horse Espresso Bar

Their most delightful and balanced taste of espresso is the trademark of Dark Horse Espresso Bar. Ever since they started, they have managed to leave an imprint of their famous expresso by doing one thing that’s a no secret to everyone – stocking beans from both Detour and 49th Parallel. They have always been transparent and they even inform their customers which particular bean they currently stock. But what’s interesting about this coffee shop is their advocacy in encouraging people to connect with strangers by using their grand wooden table in a corner of the shop. The table
is so huge that’s really intended for customers to talk to strangers in a more personal way. Truly not an ordinary day to drink your coffee, you’ll also find a new friend.

Hale Coffee

A roasted coffee that is consistently made with perfection and love is what Hale Coffee offers. They just don’t provide a taste of coffee to individuals, but they also sell their selection of custom-made coffees to café owners, personally dropping off the coffee to their shops and guiding them in achieving a perfect taste. Hale Espresso or what they like to call as the chocolate bomb is their signature expresso blend. It has the taste of chocolate and navel oranges with a touch of berry finish – this coffee is definitely a must-try!



TeAro is a cozy coffee shop situated in Leslieville and was named after a suburb in New Zealand. They have wide variety of coffee blends from the most in demand expresso to decaf options, with a little chalked note at the entrance proudly telling their customers that their coffee is air-roasted and served fresh every time. You can also pair your coffee with their healthy sandwiches, with a ham or their tasty and cheesy croissant.

The aroma and the taste are just few of the things that make them cream of the crop. The deal breaker? It’s how they serve your coffee and make you feel that every sip is a story of a worthwhile experience. If you’re near these places, they have probably been your go-to places for a caffeine session. If you’re new, go and rent a car in Toronto and start crossing these places out on your bucket list!
