FIKA Cafe is a Kensington classic but how can you not be obsessed with the book-filled wall? If that doesn’t motivate you to buckle down and get to work, then I don’t know what will.

16. Rooster Coffee House

All three Toronto locations have their own unique aesthetic but modern meets vintage is a major concept in all three. It’s the perfect place to catch up with friends in their comfy leather chairs

Tori’s Bakeshop specializes in natural and organic vegan baking – it doesn’t hurt that its interior is all glass and wood. They have two locations but this one is our favourite.

Versus Coffee serves the most unique lattes in the city. The colour will cost you $0.50 extra but it’s totally worth it to upgrade your regular matcha or espresso lattes to something more colourful. Try the campfire latte, it’s as good as it sounds (yes, the marshmallows are torched).

6. Major Treat Coffee
