Update: I will no longer be recommending this cafe to anyone. Please read full story here: http://torontocafeandfood.blogspot.ca/2014/11/not-recommended-toronto-coffee-and-tea.html

Originally known as the Toronto Coffee Company, it is now under the Toronto Coffee and Tea House due to a conflict between the original and current owners (you could read what had happened here: https://www.facebook.com/TorontoCoffeeCompany). However, this will be an unbiased review in case anyone is curious about the cafe.

Toronto Coffee and Tea House's specialty is their coconut latte, which I had a chance to try. The coconut taste was not strong but rather had an undertone of it in the latte. It wasn't something I was crazy over for though. It's unique because there aren't many cafes that offer coconut lattes. I also had their toasted caramel rooibos tea, but I don't recall much on the taste. I think it was a nice cup of tea.

Atmosphere-wise, I quite enjoyed it. It was a peaceful place to do some work and they had some very seductive music that was relaxing to listen to. The cafe was planning on hosting a piano or guitar night for some live music once a week. Since it's been awhile since I was at the cafe, I'm unsure if these events are currently happening.
