La Merceria: Eat, Drink, and Be Tempted
Only a few months old, La Merceria on Adelaide St W is a lethal combination of beautiful things, great coffee and sweets.
La Merceria is a hybrid home decor boutique and cafe. Which roughly translates to playing dirty. All the while you're sitting in comfort against an oversized pillow, sipping a perfectly prepared espresso, you're surrounded by purchasable home design goodies. And if your decision making isn't already impaired from your first (or second) cup of coffee, they sucker punch your resistance with sugar -- a little something made of dulce de leche?
Many of the people who came in while I was there were first timers, just walking by. Every one of them was instantly smitten with the place. So I don't really need to sell it, you can just go, and experience the smittening yourself.
