I feel like I never really discover’s my neighbourhood as much as I do to other neighbourhood around Toronto. So I decided to walk around Yorkville and see which places I like to hang out and maybe invite friends to join me for a cup of coffee. I really have a love/hate relationship with coffee so it’s always hard to find a spot to hang around as I always get a message “hey let’s go for coffee” and when we get to the coffee place I always order a hot cocoa or if I’m in luck I’ll get the London Fog ( I don’t really like it that much). lol Someone seriously need to open a Tea Latte Place.
GOLDSTRUCK COFFEE located in the heart of Yorkville is cute hidden gem along Yorkville Avenue. I always pass by this coffee shop on my way to the gym. I invited a friend with me to come check it out. They have such great interior! And for the first time, I didn’t really mind ordering a coffee here, You need to ask the server for their special mocha latte, spiked with cayenne pepper and goes well with spinach pastry. I also tried their caffeine free organic cranberry detox tea which is so addicting btw. Anyway here is a portion of my neighbourhood.
I got these really soft, furry jacket from forever 21 for only $13! yes I know super steal!
I haven’t really taken it off for awhile and wore it a lot of times.
Goldstruck has a very industrial-ish interior to it. The light inside is dark and yellow, I find it very relaxing actually.
you’ll see interesting little stuff inside as well.
And they also offer snacks for your dog for FREE!
Goldstruck name reminds me of Starbucks. (I think that’s where they got the idea)
They also have an available newspaper for you to read! Which I love because of the technology now I sometimes forget to read the paper. I remember learning to read as a kid by simply reading newspaper at loud together of course with the guidance of my mother.
You need to try the spinach pastry!
And the Almond Croissant.
I do from time to time kidnap this little lady from her class in UofT.
I also get my constant update on what books to read from her! You girls need to read this book, perfect for Women’s International Day tomorrow!
As per usual after a coffee date, which I am not a big coffee person here’s what happened to me :
I laughed uncontrollably hahahahahaha until my jaw hurts.
who else is with me? I think caffeine brings out this energy you did not know existed. haha.
Ready to do more exploring?
