When it comes to coffee, we stand on the shoulders of giants. Not long ago, your choices were limited when ordering a cup of coffee to basically just milk or sugar. Coffee was fairly basic, but definitely still did the trick. Over the years, we swung a little too far in the other direction; spoiled with choice, people started ordering complicated concoctions that with some combination of sugar-free, iced, or soy-based, etc..
Now, we find ourselves somewhere in the middle. This is a sweet spot not only with quality options but also choices that have evolved beyond taste, moving into something much grander with beautiful and interesting designs.
Formally, though still delicious, a café latté often appeared rather mundane in its mug. Now, our cup runneth over with cute and creative designs by talented baristas around Toronto. It’s common to find a heart, swan, or flower swirled into the foam of you latté, which is a lovely treat in and of itself.
These shops we highlight below go above and beyond to create intricate and unique designs to liven up your morning coffee order and brighten your day.

Not only do you need your sleep to perform at your best for all of your commitments, but you also need to maintain a strong immune system--there is no room in the schedule to be sick.
Follow our guide this holiday season and you'll definitely sleep like a yule log, ho ho ho.
