10 Best Coffee Shops in Toronto’s Yorkville

10 Best Coffee Shops in Toronto’s Yorkville

Looking for the best coffee shops in Yorkville to grab delicious brews and pastries?

Bloor-Yorkville is known as the swanky part of Toronto, and it’s an absolutely lovely area to explore.

While there are a lot of luxury stores in Yorkville, there are also mid-range stores like Aritzia in the neighbourhood!

It’s one of the best shopping destinations in Toronto, and it’s also been home to Toronto Fashion Week for the last several years.

Even if you don’t plan on doing any luxury shopping, it’s still a super nice neighbourhood to explore.

I also love hitting up Eataly for Italian groceries whenever I’m in the area, and there are tons of incredible restaurants in the Yorkville neighbourhood as well.

Here are some of the top Yorkville coffee shops you absolutely must visit in Toronto, whether you’re looking for a good cup of joe or a nice spot to catch up with a friend.

If you’re in the mood for some exploring, grab a coffee and go on this self-guided audio walking tour to learn more about the history of the Yorkville neighbourhood.

They also make their own pastries and cookies in-house, and they even have a small selection of sandwiches and salads on the menu if you’re hungry.

ZAZA is by the same people behind Coco Espresso Bar, and they’ve got several locations across Toronto where they serve up authentic Italian coffee and gelato.
