Cafe Olya

New cafe brings a taste of Brooklyn to Toronto

There's a new purveyor of coffee and sweet treats in Toronto's east end, providing the family-friendly neighborhood with fresh baked goodies that are as salivating to look at as they are to eat. This cozy spot is the first Canadian café to carry Brooklyn's very own Café Grumpy beans, yes, those of HBO's Girls fame. Dubbed a "coffee bar and micro-bakery", owners Mike Tasso and Olyana Zhuke are hoping to lure folks in with the ever-wafting aroma emanating from their in house kitchen.
