The evolution of cafés in Toronto continue : from modest-sized cafés that proudly source and roast their own coffee; to spaces that exhibit art works by local artists; and to espresso bars hidden inside a hip clothing store or a home goods shop.
The New York Times noted that independent coffee shops have been opening everywhere in New York as proof of people craving for “local, personal neighbourhood experiences”. That seems to be same trend in Toronto as many are beginning to eschew the big coffee chains. That being said, even though my focus is on independent cafés, I will be remiss not to mention the recent “grand” entrance of the Nespresso café into the local scene.
Anyone up for coffee?
