    I think this is one of the first places to start the independent coffee trend in Toronto. They do their lattes right.

    Great place for waiting and working. High ceilings, a large table and a big heavy mug.

    Simple, pure and nice interior. Big wooden table, bench and a bunch of classy old chairs. The Dark Horse Cold brewed coffe is great and mild!

    Coffee here never disappoints. Love that they provide simple syrup, honey and agave syrup to sweeten iced drinks as well as hot drinks. Muffins are gargantuan and delicious. This place is aces.

    A great place to meet with friends, have a meeting (there's an option to book the large community table for a couple of hours), and just relax with a book.

    IMO popularity has skewed judgment on what defines a good cup of joe- ie: Starbucks. Each time I've been to DH I've had an americano comparable to Tim's. Consistency is key..and its missing here
