Toronto Café Tour: Ezra’s Pound (Dupont)

August 21, 2011

Back again for another quick café review, this time from Ezra’s Pound on Dupont and Madison, which not only scores points for having the best coffeeshop name in the city, but also happens to be the closest nice café to my department at school, and for these reasons Ezra’s will always be near and dear to my heart. But enough idle chatter; here’s what I thought about their java…

Latte: Ezra’s soy latte comes in at a steep-ish $4 (though there’s no extra charge for the soymilk) and arrives in a wee-ish cup. That being said, the latte is superb, with an outstanding espresso flavor which is blended perfectly with the milk. It really was good ’til the last drop! I only wish the cup could’ve been bigger…

Wifi: Yeppers!

Atmosphere: Ezra’s Dupont location is a bit on the small side, but they still manage to squeeze in plenty of tables and seats for people who want to bum around. In the summer their front wall windows are left completely open to the street, allowing a gentle breeze to waft through the café space. Very comfortable and relaxing.

Food: They have a decent assortment of baked goods on offer, from croissants to rugelach, and although none of these looked particularly vegan, I did see that they also had vegan M-Bars for sale, for eaters like me.

Final Verdict: Far enough away from UofT not to be overrun by students and faculty, but close enough that it still makes sense for a school-day afternoon drink, Ezra’s Pound is my go-to café for when I’m at or near my department. The coffee is excellent, if a bit on the pricey side, and it’s even possible to stick around and get some work done while you’re there. I’m interested to try out Ezra’s other location on Dundas West and see how it compares, but I’ll leave that adventure for another day.

Until we eat again,

Willie
