Agenda Cafe

Agenda is a spacious cafe in the heart of Little Italy that brews all the standard offerings of your neighbourhood coffee shop, plus a food counter for quick eats.  

Located at the front of the CHIN building – a stronghold of the local Italian community – the cafe brings a sense of rejuvenation to a space frequented mostly by the elderly.

Despite its floor-to-ceiling windows and open back entrance to the CHI building, the vibe in Agenda has less of a transient feel than expected, proving itself to be a viable spot for studying and some needed caffeine.agenda cafe toronto
