Originally opened in 2007,  Manic Coffee underwent renovations in 2016 that reshaped the cafe into a more modern incarnation. Moreover, new food items were added to the menu, such as pastries and ice cream, improving the overall quality of the food.

The 40-seat café is brightly lit with a large window at the front to let in natural light. With Kensington Market, home to a number of coffee shops, Manic Coffee sets itself apart by offering more than its competitors. “With so much competition, the quality and freshness has to stand out,” says Tony. "We [also] do not have Wi-Fi as we would like to keep the café as a conversational and interactional environment.”

Toronto coffee shops worthy of a study session

Since 2007, this College Street café, just down the street from the University of Toronto, has been serving up some of the greatest lattes North of Queen St. Enjoy the Wi-Fi with a scone, muffin, or even gelato. The space is quiet enough to get in some deep thinking.
