10 new coffee shops that opened in Toronto this summer

Toronto welcomed new coffee shops this summer, giving us new spots to quench our thirst with iced coffee or tea as the weather remains hot.

Come fall, they'll warm us with lattes, and though they aren't the gathering places they once were, let's hope they'll be able to safely welcome larger crowds of cafe-goers again soon.
