The Best New Cafes in Toronto for 2015

The best new cafes in Toronto are on the cutting edge of coffee trends. They can be found in some unexpected and wonderful places; inside a used bookstore, at the back of a luxury clothing shop or even in a shipping container in a former loading dock. In keeping the independent spirit alive, they all have their own unique vibe.

Here are the best new cafes in Toronto that opened in 2015.



Neo Coffee Bar

Neo Coffee Bar

This chic and modern cafe near St. Lawrence Market features local and international roasters for its espresso, drip and pour-over coffees. Sandwiches and pastries are house-made, with Japanese-style roll cakes and cream puffs just some of the delectable specialties.

Reunion Island

Reunion Island

This local coffee roaster has been around for over 20 years, but only opened its first-ever flagship cafe on Roncesvalles in 2015. It definitely does things right, featuring seasonal single-origin beans for its espresso-based beverages, pour-over coffees and addictive cold brew & tonic. And who can resist those highly Instagrammable floor tiles in the entryway?


Sumach Espresso

This sibling cafe of Broadview Espresso brings its community-minded ethos (along with cappuccinos and cortados) to Corktown/south Regent Park. House-made eats like sandwiches and brownies, not to mention a friendly atmosphere, make this a very welcome addition to the neighbourhood.


Sweet Jesus

A fave on Instagram for its tricked-out desserts, this La Carnita offshoot is also an espresso bar, although you can always get the best of both worlds (those would be soft serve and coffee) with an affogato.


Creeds Coffee Bar on Dupont

Creeds Coffee Bar on Dupont

This huge space in the Annex offers cold brew on tap in addition to Pilot Coffee. There are also tempting gourmet scones, cookies and cold-pressed juices, but the biggest perk is that you can also drop off your dry cleaning in the back.
