Also, let's induct Instagrammable into the Oxford dictionary already, I think it's become commonplace.

 

If you're in Toronto, your cafe choices are likely going to be dictated by more than what's on the menu - after all, we eat with our eyes too. I've been skirting around to a few cafes this winter to keep my toes warm and my feed updated, and here are my picks.

 

 

1. Sorelle and Co.

 

 

Sorelle and Co.

Question: Will the staff be cool with it if I take a photo inside?

Answer: Yes! I was sitting beside a couple of girls that literally moved tables twice to get the right angle - the staff was more than accommodating. I also accidentally broke a vase (I have two left feet it's cool) and the manager on staff was really sweet about it. 

 

Question: How was the food?

Answer: Everything was vegan, so if that's your thing, you're in the right spot. They had a huge variety of items ranging from vegan lasagna to pastries, etc. They've also got Sloane tea, which is pretty high quality. Definitely would recommend

 

Question: Did I need to wait for a table?

Answer: Nope! We visited the new Yorkville location, and it was a good amount of space, not too crowded at all.

 

 

 2. Cafe Cancan

Question: Will the staff be cool with it if I take a photo inside?

Answer: So I've discovered that this answer varies on experience to experience. My friend and I were sitting at the bar, and the the bartender actually offered to take our photo without us even making a request - he was super sweet. Once a few people left we requested to be moved into the normal seating area and our waitress was a little weird about it - but she could have just been finishing up a long shift. It's a very tight space so be weary of jumping into a full on photoshoot here.

 

Question: How was the food?

Answer: Top, freaking notch. Try the benny - I got my pea meal substituted for smoked salmon and it was divine. A little on the pricey side but I would say worth the money.

 

Question: Did I need to wait for a table?

Answer: YES, YES YOU DO. Don't show up on Sunday at 1:00PM and expect a table here (haha, whoops). Book in advance, and don't expect that beautiful corner spot unless you've got a party of 4 or more, and you've reserved in 6 weeks in advance. Pretty bananas, but again, worth it.

 

 

 

3. Fika Cafe

Question: Will the staff be cool with it if I take a photo inside?

Answer: So every time I'm in a new establishment, I always ask if I can take a photo or two. When I asked the waitress, she actually said "yes please!" So that's a pretty resounding yes.

 

Question: How was the food?

Answer: Excellent and affordable! Potato salad is the key to my heart. The tea was lovely as well.

 

Question: Did I need to wait for a table?

Answer: There's a couple of prime Instagrammable spots in this joint, so if you want to snag either of them you may need to. One is the beautiful book wall, which is housed beside a large shared table - my friend and I were in on Sunday at 2PM and there were a few empty chairs, so no waiting there. The other spot is in front of these beautiful mint doors, which if you've got that seat, you're in luck, otherwise you'll need to wait for someone to vacate it.
