Cafe Princess Toronto

Cafe Princess

Café Princess is where you should be hanging out if you've ever been jealous of where rich kids take their afternoon tea in Korean television dramas.

What makes a café a princess café? Well, with the liberal use of pastel colours, delicate flowers, mini teddy bears and Victorian-era design touches, the decorations make the place look...cute, and slightly surreal.

Cafe Princess interior

Located on the second floor of a Yonge and Finch strip mall with a Noraebang (karaoke), PC Bong (internet café) and Korean restaurants, Café Princess is a quiet place where you can sit on fancy chairs and chat with your "courtiers" about the current state of the country for hours at a time. If you're looking for something less brain draining, but equally intense, board games are available to while away your time - if you fork over $2.50 of your princess change.

When the princess stomach started to rumble (mine, of course), there were a variety of hot and cold specialty drinks (~$2-$5), bubble tea ($4-$5), sandwiches (~$5-$9), bagels (~$4-$7), cakes ($5.98), fondue ($14.28), banana splits ($7.98) and ice cream waffles ($8.78) to satisfy my desires.

Iced Green Tea Latte

The drinks came quickly. Dunggule tea ($2.78), which apparently is made with the root of a special plant, was disappointing when it arrived in a tea bag and tasted like regular Japanese roasted green tea. The iced green tea latte ($4.98) was better - ice cold, smooth and creamy, with just the right amount of sweetness and green tea bitterness. It hit the spot.

Waffles with ice cream and fruit

Waffles with ice cream and fruit ($8.78), comes with a choice of two flavours, vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, green tea or cookies and cream. The waffle was freshly made, although a bit on the dry side. The fruit was plentiful, with bananas, strawberries, kiwi, and weirdly, honeydew melon. The green tea ice cream was delicious, but I can't say the same about the cookies and cream. There were hardly any cookies, and it was overly sweet.

Cafe Princess teddy bears

Food at Café Princess is a bit of a miss, but judging from the number of tables and couches, the convenient location must be big factor for the after-dinner crowd of young princes and princesses of North York.
