This place is fresh on the map in 2016 and makes genuine Australian espresso. The owner hung up his white collar to open Cafe De Melbourne as a passion project and is great conversation while you enjoy your caffeine fix and Australian style meat pie.
There are a few Dark Horse locations around Toronto, but this particular post on Spadina is a great place to settle in for an afternoon going through your work checklist. With a massive, floor to ceiling window for people watching, and a back section for a better sense of repose from the husstle and bustle, you're sure to get in the zone.
This joint embraces a minimalistic ambiance to help you clear your mind to tackle the work day. It embraces factory style decor with white walls and an industrial feel. I personally like the mural made out of tape. I won't go more into detail. Go see for yourself.
Let's face it... This is not the best place to be productive, but if you hate your boss and feel like playing a little "Cards Against Humanity" with your coworker while you 'work', you've found yourself the perfect place.

This is a Sweedish joint that has a reputation of making perfect coffee. It's also great for summer because you can sit outside and watch the city move. The inside looks like your grandma's living room. Checker out.
