Introducing: Toronto Café TourJune 2, 2011
Hi all! So it’s summer, which is a huge relief for me, seeing as the weather here in Toronto is finally getting nice, and seeing as I’m finally done with classes and now have some free time and flexibility in my schedule. And so, in order to better take advantage of this new-found freedom of mine, I’ve decided to start a little summer blog series which I’m calling Toronto Café Tour. The basic idea is that throughout the summer I’ll be visiting as many Toronto cafés as I can manage, and posting mini-reviews of each of them here. Not only will this mission give me some initiative and purpose to go out and explore new areas of the city, it will also help me suss out the best places in town to get me some java, as well as the best places to hunker down and do some work—info that you, too, will hopefully appreciate.
Some ground rules: As I said above, these will be mini-reviews, so don’t expect anything overly detailed—most of what you’ll be getting will be merely first impressions (which, however, I think still count for a lot). To keep things more consistent, I will generally order the same drink at every café: a soy latte, my preferred beverage and a good benchmark for any coffeehouse in my opinion. I will also be evaluating the locations on their wifi availability, their general atmosphere, and their food selection. Overall, I will be looking for cafés that offer a good, affordable drink and a nice place to work.
Anyway, I’ll be back tomorrow with my first review, so be sure to check back in, and I hope you enjoy this series!
Until we eat again,
P.S.: I don’t often do this, but I really feel that I must plug the excellent Drawn and Devoured blog. Almost all of the blogs I follow are either food blogs or comics blogs, and Drawn and Devoured is the only one that brings those two genres together, featuring beautifully illustrated restaurant reviews. Moreover, D&D is a Toronto food blog, so its reviews are especially relevant to me. Anyway, great work, Katherine! I look forward to reading (and looking at) more of your future reviews!
