The Good Neighbour

Like a good neighbour, we can always trust this café to satisfy our espresso cravings. With multiple locations, each with their own personality, The Good Neighbour café always has our back. Their signature espresso roast, with its dark chocolate aroma, is a joy to brew at home, but nothing beats making it out to the shop to sample some seasonal goodies. Iced mochas in the summer, and hot apple chai in the winter, paired with a sweet treat like gluten-free chocolate walnut cookies keeps us coming back for more. Not to mention their cute mugs, and custom-roasted beans that tempt us to stock our pantries. With charm, character and great taste, The Good Neighbour is always happy that you stopped by.

Arvo

Inspired by Australian coffee culture, Arvo has two Toronto locations serving at opposite ends of the city. While each location is charmingly distinct from the other, the one thing that both the Distillery District and Liberty Village locations have in common is their love of a great cup of coffee. With a signature blend roasted for them by Phil and Sebastian roasters in Calgary, both Arvo locations beckon visitors with their character. The Distillery location shares its space with a florist, making it a cheerful spot to grab a quick cup. In Liberty Village, Arvo is also a bottle shop. Themed around terroir, their elegant space invites you in to enjoy a leisurely brunch.
