Alright winter, you’ve made your point.

Until then, it’s time to get comfy in the city’s coziest coffee shops with a hot cup of joe. And these are the ones you’ve got to hit.

This spunky spot is cool, but it maintains warmth through big, sunny windows and lots of plants. If you sit in the sun and squint your eyes until they’re totally closed, it feels like it’s summertime. Get a delicious cookie while you’re in.

Where: 622 College Street

Older sibling to Agenda, Field Trip is tucked up a little sside street, just off of Bloor. Once the snow starts to melt, you can enjoy your java on their patio, bundled up in your coat and mitts. It’s a very hygge experience.

Where: 3 Westmoreland Ave

It may be located in a pretty booming area, but Hotblack is a hideaway. Top-quality coffee is served in a space that offers a refuge from the business of Queen West. It’s a great place to stop for a warm drink and to take a breath during a busy day of exploring downtown.

Address: 245 Queen Street West
Phone: 416-840-6141
