Since I work primarily from home I’m always looking for the next best coffice. I rotate between my steady regular spots and throw in new spots all the time to keep myself inspired and fresh. While I do end up at the local Starbucks every now and then, I also really enjoy exploring Toronto’s independent coffee culture and some of my favourite coffices at the moment are brand new spots in my neighbourhood.
One of my favourite ways to discover new coffee shops in the city is with my Indie Coffee Passport. I discovered the program two years ago and every fall I look forward to the new passport to hit local cafes. This year’s passport is a spotlight on new cafes – all participating cafes are younger than 3 years old!
How It Works
For the price of less than 5 coffees you have the opportunity to try your choice of 6 signature drinks from 22 independent cafes. The passport is divided by neighbourhood and includes cafes in Parkdale, Brockton Village, the Junction, the Annex, Baldwin Village, High Park, Roncesvalles, Kensington, Leslieville, Cabbagetown, Little Italy, and Little Portugal.
