Crema Coffee

First Look: Crema Coffee

Crema Coffee served its first cup of joe at the end of April and already this Junction cafe is turning into something of a neighbourhood hot spot.

Playing to the sensibilities of this burgeoning neighbourhood, Crema features a range of direct trade and organic drinks and baked treats. On the menu are all the typical cafe staples including cappuccino, macchiatto, espresso, tea, hot chocolate and soy lattes. Fresh brewed coffee beans are sourced from Ethiopia, El Salvador and Honduras.

Inside, there's art on the walls as well as in the drinks. Matt, one of Crema's baristas, maintains a blog where he posts photos tracking his progress with latte art, as well as general updates about the cafe. It also includes more information about the cafe as well as the full menu.

I like the vibe of this place. The corner location and lots of big windows infuse it with light. Wooden tables and vintage chairs make it a nice place to hang out and contemplate the changes happening east and west of the cafe in what's become Toronto's most up-and-coming neighbourhood.

Crema Coffee is at 3079 Dundas West in the Junction. The phone number is 416.767.3131. They have a web site - but it's not yet live - so a better bet for now is to check out their unofficial blog.
