Discovering new cafes

I love spending time in cafes. There’s something about the smell of roasted beans and the hustle and bustle of a good cafe that makes me feel at home. Every saturday Alan and I go to either Louie’s at Kensington Market or Manic Coffee. We never fail to meet interesting people in both places and love it they although we only go there once a week, the staff knows what we like and we know them by name. Although I enjoy going back to my favourite places, I also particularly enjoy discovering new places so every once in a while we’ll check out a new cafe. Yesterday we ended up at Te Aro, a new place in Leslieville, at the recommendation of Thiago, the Brazilian barista that used to work at La Merceria (Sam James, one of the most famous baristas in Toronto told us to go check out Thiago’s work at La Merceria) and who now is learning roasting at Te Aro. If you are around Leslieville, you should definitely check it out! Click on the picture below to see a slideshow. And in addition to the official site linked above, check out Te Aro’s own blog.

Born and raised in Brazil, a Canadian stole my heart and took me to Canada in 1999. After seven years between Montreal and Toronto, we then moved to Barcelona, Spain, where I did research for my PhD thesis. This blog began as a chronicle of our adventures while living in Barcelona and exploring the old world and has acquired a life of its own after we moved back to Canada.
