Like most people I require copious amounts of caffeine to get me through the day and over the years, i’ve tried some of the best americano’s and latte’s that Toronto has to offer. Below are my top picks for the best Toronto coffee shops to visit when you’re in need of a quick caffeine fix in no particular order.

#1 Bar Buca
Bar Buca is a quaint trattoria nestled in the heart of King West. Open weekdays from 7 am to 2 am and weekends from 8 am to 2 am Bar Buca offers both breakfast and dinner and is the perfect place to grab a morning coffee on the go. The baristas make a mean espresso which makes for an excellent Americano… probably one of my favorites in the city!
#2 xo Bisous
This French patisserie and cafe is one of the new kids in town opening their doors in January of this year. With a savory lunch menu, delicious pastries and great coffee Bisous is definitely a cool spot to check out. Thanks Bisous for being gracious enough to let us shoot in your lovely space.
This beautiful gem is located inside of the Thompson hotel, and can easily be mistaken for a picturesque photo of a Parisian cafe straight out of France. If you feel like you’ve seen Colette before, you are probably correct. This restaurant is one of the most Instagrammed places around the city with its elegant interiors and French inspired decor- C’est Magnifique!
#4 Dark Horse Espresso Bar
With a few locations around the city Dark Horse Coffee is easily one of the best coffee shops to grab a coffee and enjoy a quaint meeting with a colleague or catch up with friends. If you don’t want a coffee they have plenty of fresh juices or delicious iced drinks.
#5 Dineen Coffee Co
Another favorite of mine is Dineen Coffee located on Younge Street. The decor is stunning, and the inviting ambience makes it a great place to relax, do some work or people watch.
If you’re looking for one of the best macarons in the city then head over to Nadege on Queen St West. Give the Marie Antoinette tart a try and snap a photo of the latte art.
#7 Sud Forno
It doesn’t get more Italian than Sud Forno. Here’s my advice, grab a cappuccino, take a photo of the gorgeous mosaics (every blogger’s dream) and make sure you try the Bombolini, me and my Nonna’s favorite!
