7 Toronto Coffee Shops To Help Start Your Morning
As Canadians, we’re all very familiar with our homegrown coffee business, Tim Horton’s. Even though it’s hard to drive by the big red sign for your morning fix of caffeine, there are other great coffee shops in Toronto that have various blends and their very own special feel and atmosphere. These are 7 Toronto Coffee Shops To Start Your Morning.
1. Rooster Coffee House (Broadview location)
You might miss it if you’re driving too fast down Broadview, but once you see it, you won’t forget it. Rooster Coffee House does a lot of little things right for its customers, like including taxes on the price list (why doesn’t everyone do this?) and having a coffee here also includes one of the best views of Toronto’s skyline overlooking Riverdale park.
2. Pilot Coffee Roasters
Friday Feature: We have @pilotcoffee’s ANTHEM shining on espresso today. “The Innovator” for those who like to step off the beaten path and explore the less conventional. You can expect a bright, clean and sweet balance to this one. 📷 @thebrocktonhaunt ⠀ ⠀ #pilotcoffee #coffeeshopcorners #featurefriday #shoutout

You’ve probably had coffee from Pilot Coffee Roasters before and didn’t even know it, as they supply their brew to other shops around the city (including a few on our list). Visit their tasting bar to gain some knowledge on coffee.
3. Dineen Coffee Co
It’s #nationalcoffeeday and we are so excited to kick off the #weekend with the first #pumpkinspicelattes this year ☕️☺️ come and have some! #soready #fallishere #cozyday #rainythursday #almostweekend #pumpkinspicelatte #pumpkinspiceeverything #yum #finally #latteart #dineencoffee #dineen #coffee #toronto
What goes better with a fresh cup of coffee than a gourmet sandwich as you sip. Dineen coffee has that for you, the sandwiches and pastries are second-to-none and your sweet tooth will leave here more than satisfied.
4. Zaza Espresso Bar
Yorkville has been known for its fine dining and casual celebrity sightings, but Zaza Espresso Bar has made itself another reason you need to visit the ritzy downtown Toronto neighborhood.
5. Ezra’s Pound
This place is the perfect spot to spend your Saturday afternoon when you need to strap down with great coffee and get work done. Ezra’s Pound has a great atmosphere that is perfect for those who need some quiet for a couple of hours.
6. Boxcar Social

Boxcar Social is the perfect place for a date. You can start with their great coffee and then reignite the date with some adult beverages. You can spend your whole day at this Rosedale coffee shop and not even know it.
7. Odin Cafe
It’s like you’re taking a step into the future when you enter Odin with their large spacious and well-lit cafe/bar. Your day can get lost here as their weekly changing menu has food that will keep you there all day as well as alcoholic beverages that can turn your study session into a party session.
