Whether you call it The Beach or The Beaches, this Toronto neighbourhood is full of charm. Having a good grasp on the cafés in an area really makes you feel like a local and as a former Beaches resident, I can confidently say I know the ins and outs of the East end. Without the hussle and bussle you may feel working out of a coffee shop on Yonge, The Beaches offer a different vibe. Ready to grab a drink?

As a former Beaches resident, this place was my go-to for an iced maccha latte in the summer! With a large interior and lots of delicious food options, this is a Beaches favourite. It’s conveniently located across the street from the Main Street bus stop so you can grab your coffee before heading downtown.

You can’t visit this café without grabbing a Montreal-style bagel. A hot tea and a bagel to accompany your walk through Queen East? Sounds like pure bliss to me.

The best part about this café? You can take a taste of Remarkable Bean home with you by purchasing their house blends of loose leaf tea or coffee! They know quality which is why all of their coffee is small batch micro-roasted daily.

This is a café through and through. You’ll be greeted with the warm smell of coffee, soft jazz music and a bright yet rustic interior. Did I forget to mention the foam art?
