Ahh, Coffee. Arguably the water replacement of college students, the smell of a good cup of coffee is the best thing to start my day with. While I’m no professional connoisseur, I do have an appreciation for a freshly ground and hand poured brew. Throughout my first semester at U of T, I have tried my fair share of coffee shops both on campus and off. I’ll be sharing some of my favourite spots around the vicinity of U of T, because a caffeinated day is always a better one.
A hidden gem that’s a city favourite, this cozy and ambient coffee shop is situated in Yorkville, and a good place to grab coffee with friends after class. The decor is industrial chic, and have some of the best organic coffee.
A chill spot that’s located at Wellesley and Bay that has phenomenal espresso brews and delicious pastries, as well as a great location if you have class near St Mikes. They have creative ways to brew beans, such as aeropress, drip, and greek styled coffee.
U of T’s very own coffee house is run by student volunteers and has fair trade, 1 dollar coffee served in donated mugs. Located in Old Vic, this is one special cafe that is definitely special. You can also bring your own mug, or take their mugs out, as long as you bring them back!
Located on 75 St George Street, this cafe is conveniently located on campus grounds and is perfect for grabbing a latte and a muffin between classes. If you’ve never been, make sure to stop by and check it out!
That’s it for my favourite coffee shops around campus, I hope fellow caffeine addicts like me will enjoy this short guide. Stay caffeinated, folks!
