There are lots of great cafes in this city, but one of my all time faves just might also be the most off the beaten path. Nestled on the corner of Dovercourt and Argyle, Luna Cafe is the perfect neighbourhood spot to stop by for some fair trade coffee, chai, hot chocolate or even a bite to eat.
I was recently there on a rainy day where I had my pick of cozy wood tables where I could sip my soy chai latte ($2.75) above and flip through the latest issue of Spacing Magazine. It's not usually that quiet but it was 4pm which on most days is past closing time. Luna isn't licensed - although it would make a great little bar if it were - but the cafe is a good option for brunch, lunch or a mid-afternoon snack.
