I was walking down the streets of Toronto when I saw this sign.
If you came across a sign claiming to have the “Best. Coffee. Ever.” what would you do?
- Walk on by
- Walk in and grab a coffee, duh
- I probably didn’t even see the sign, I was too busy looking at my phone
I’m sure you can guess which option I chose.
The inside of the café is small. It’s in the middle of Toronto, of course it’s small. But they really use the space effectively. To your right is a series of small tables and on your left is their menu. Their menu is so creative and such a unique use of space. It really acts as a piece of décor in addition to serving a purpose.
They also have this ADORABLE wagon for delivery within “wagon distance”. Do they actually deliver? I have no idea. But it’s super cute either way!
Hot Black Coffee really deserves some bonus points for their creative décor. They had glasses hanging on the wall with plants, some classic Canadian looking plaid, and a wooden outline of a Christmas tree with Christmas lights because they were festive.
Now, back to the reason I entered. “Best. Coffee. Ever.” While they had some delicious sounding drinks, I ordered the drink that they’re named after, a Hot Black Coffee. And it was indeed hot (I know because I immediately spilt it all over my hand), black, and a coffee.
Was it the best coffee I’ve ever had? I honestly don’t know, but it was very good. It had a very strong and bold taste, which I quite enjoyed. I couldn’t taste any hints of any unique flavours or spices. It just tasted like a good, real, complex cup of coffee.
