Ended up here twice. Not very impressed. Coffee is decent but not great. Had to return my macchiato, it was way too milky. Like a small Latte! I got espresso instead but it was watery. This place has the look of a real coffee house but lacks the commitment and knowledge to raise it above a Main Street corporate experience

Ordered a flat white for morning tea here today. Plenty of seating around including large tables to set up the laptop or pull out a book. Nice cabinet full of pastries, cookies and the like. I ordered a flat white to have in - coffee was good but I wouldn’t say great and given the somewhat terrible service from the staff at the counter I wouldn’t hurry back here. If the staff could show some manners and perhaps crack a smile here and there it would certainly improve the experience.

The staff have an ordinary attitude and the barista must think he having a bland personality suits his look. The coffee was pretty good at least but not the best. I think some staff just need to wake up to themselves and realise they are in customer service. It was service I wouldn't of expected in Canada as I didn't know unfriendly Candians existed!

Located under a cool co-working space, this is a nice café to visit if in Toronto. Had a cortado, nice dark chocolate notes and just the right amount of steamed milk. Busy place so seating could be a challenge at times I reckon.

Consistently good coffee. Flat white: Smooth textured milk, full bodied (not weak) flavour. Slight acidity coming through the full cream milk indicates a strong, well roasted, ground, and poured bean. Temperature was good. Grinder and machine are well tuned. Long black (short Americano?): Rich and fruity with a sweet after taste. Crema was excellent. Baristas demonstrated an obvious attention to detail behind the machine. We visited more than ten times because we enjoyed the coffee so much. Not once were we disappointed.
