The weather is extremely cold in Toronto these days, while we were thinking the spring has finally came, and winter just gave her last few shouts to us now. As such, nothing is better than a cup of hot coffee, especially in a warm, cozy place.
As part of our adventure, we love to go to variety of coffee places, experiencing different atmospheres and this week, we would like to introduce you our favourite chill spot – the Balzac’s Coffee -.
Balzac’s Coffee is located at Toronto’s Distillery District, and it would be a perfect place for you if you are looking to spend some quite, peaceful time to read or chat with friends. It definitely has a vintage feels to its interior, and it is very spacious inside, you could choose to sit either downstairs or upstairs. We always go upstairs so that it gives a better view for taking pictures.
During the summer time, the patio seatings open up for everyone to take a break from the hot and humid Toronto weather. It is great for “people-watching” (not in a creepy way!), and just to have a Parisian-style cafe experience in the Distillery main square. Balzac’s Coffee will also be offering variety of summer drinks starting …. hopefully soon haha
They also hold cafes in many other locations across Ontario, so be sure to check it out if there is one near you. And apparently, each of Balzac’s locations are carefully picked for their historic significance and character! Their floor decoration is gorgeous, don’t forget to keep this in mind and you may take a picture with it. See hashtag #Ihavethisthingwithfloors on Instagram to create yours.
Balzac’s Coffee also offers variety of cakes and cookies, along with their specially roasted coffee. This day, Yico ordered a cup of hot chocolate; and Yu got her Chai Latte. We spent about 1 hour in the cafe to keep us warm, talking about more inspirations for the blog, checking out Instagrams…and we enjoyed it. – Almost forgot to mention – they also have free Wi-Fi! Order a hot drink, have some desserts and enjoy your long, relaxing afternoon.
