Sit down at Balzac’s (several locations) and enjoy a cup of fair-trade organic coffee. The Distillery District location is a great option with its historical building and sunny terrace. Dark Horse is another solid mini-chain of espresso bars with good paninis. Newcomer Neo Coffee Bar has some of the most intense espresso you’ve ever tasted. Students from nearby George Brown College congregate at tiny tables in the loft-like space. Try one of the airy roll cakes made on site.
