Sara Kae’s Toronto Coffee Shop Hit List

I have just moved downtown and I am on the search for MY coffee shop. The place where I will find myself on a Sunday afternoon writing my to do lists and game plans while pouring my heart into my journal trying to act like I am starring in a romantic comedy movie. And of course, sipping on my favourite latte.
Here is my hit list:
Located: Cabbagetown
Unfortunately COVID-19 has made it impossible to take a seat at this super cute cafe but it is still open for take out from 6 AM to 5 PM.
I will definitely be trying the coffee and coming back for the vibe later.
Rooster’s Coffee House 
Located: Corktown, King St. East
This King Street East gem is cozy, and it’s open from 7 AM to 3 PM from Monday to Friday, and 8 AM to 4 PM on Saturday and Sunday. They are taking precautions by limiting the amount of costumers in store, but coffee is always available for take out.
Contra Cafe
Located: Old Toronto, Shaw & Yarmouth
The white exposed brick has me sold. It’s tucked in the corner of Shaw and Yarmouth, and the coffee shop is open from 7:30 AM to 6 PM from Monday to Friday, and then 8 AM to 6 PM on Saturday and Sunday. The available seating inside also makes it possible to sit down and enjoy their delicious sandwiches and more!
5 Elements Expresso 
Located: Yorkville
This Avenue Road haunt is a chic hang out that’s open until 6 PM from Monday to Friday, 8 AM to 6 PM on Saturday, and 8:30 to 5 PM on Sunday. This Italian-inspired cafe focuses on the five elements of espresso: blend, grinder, machine, barista skill and the maintenance of equipment.
I am looking forward to checking these shops off my list and getting back to you what is my favourite.
I will take ALL into consideration…
The coffee
The snacks
The aesthetic
The comfort level of the seating
Pandemic seating
And possible love interests (I know we all want to fall in love in a coffee shop!)
Don’t worry, I got you covered!
