Plan B cafe can be a bit tough to find. Follow the arrows outside in the loading bay on the corner of Logan and Dundas next to the T-Shirt Guys and they'll lead you inside a building, where around a corner and through a narrow tunnel of branches one comes to the cheerful space that hosts the cafe and Fresh Cut Flowers.
Not content to offer just typical cafe fare, Josie's Plan B and Fresh Cut flowers share the space, which is soon to offer boatloads of fresh blooms. At the time of writing, they were awaiting the first shipment.
The coffee at Plan B is entirely fair trade and organic, and with some time and practice, new barista Candice will be churning out latte's, cappuccinos and machiato's with flair. Coffee options are standard ($1.50-$3.25), and there is a selection of Tazo teas available on the counter.
Candice is a former baker from Brick Street Bakery just down the street and makes a variety of treats like muffins and banana bread for $1.75.
Lunch is easy with "The Ugliest Grilled Cheese Ever" for $3.99 and other light options ranging from salads ($4.99) to basic wraps and Paninis (coming soon).
Plan B is a huge, cheerful space, with comfortable furniture and a large communal table at the center of it all. When I dropped by it felt a touch empty, as much of the space was set aside for an onslaught of flowers. But it is a cafe designed as a meeting place for neighborhood groups, and there is a patio coming soon, so the ample square footage makes it really flexible. Look for community events to be held in the near future, like art shows - and a liquor license in the works is sure to bring a different vibe to evenings.
Plan B is open 8am - 8pm every day of the week.
