Toronto’s most Instagrammable cafés

Cafés are a dime a dozen in Toronto, but stumbling upon a dazzling space that beautifies your Instagram feed while enjoying a cup of joe is truly something special. Whether it’s a bright space or just the perfect unique details, coffee shops are no longer just about the coffee. Enjoying these next-level spaces is one thing, but catching a great photo for your feed is icing on the cake – or the foam on the latte ;)


362 King St E, Toronto, ON M5A 1K9

Nestled in the heart of Corktown, Roselle is known for its delicious and gorgeously crafted pastries. Those who are looking for a stellar photo op while enjoying some dessert will appreciate the large mural donning the words “dessert makes you happy.” The sweet treats from Roselle, the picturesque space and the beautiful photos that will result from a visit – it’s enough to make anyone happy, but particularly Toronto’s most savvy food bloggers.

Reunion Island

385 Roncesvalles Ave, Toronto, ON M6R 2N1

You’ve probably seen countless Instas of sleek sneakers positioned in front of this spot’s iconic subway floor tiles, spelling out – what else – “coffee.” But those living in Toronto’s west end also enjoy the bright and clean space that Reunion Island offers, and the delicious drinks it slangs from its oh-so-sleek coffee bar. Come for a pound of their wholesale coffee beans, and pause a minute to capture a quintessential “selfeet.”

Maman Bakery Cafe

100 King St W, Toronto, ON M5X 2A1

Those looking for a little beauty in Toronto’s financial district find solace in the expertly decorated Maman. But coffee connoisseurs should make no mistake: the blue tiles, fresh flowers and reclaimed wood accents stand second to a vast array of espresso-based drinks and French pastries. Hot tip for the iPhone photographer: their bathroom is something to see too!


855 Oxford St, Etobicoke, ON M8Z 1L6

Touted as having the best French macarons in the city, this modern patisserie cozied up against Trinity Bellwoods Park is a source of neighborhood pride. Artfully crafted pastries in an array of colours, coupled with the coffee of your choice will no doubt result in some envy-inducing photos.

Dineen Coffee

140, Yonge St, Toronto, ON M5C 1X6

Another gem in the Toronto financial district, Dineen boasts a beautiful space that caters to 9-to-5ers and city tourists alike. Enjoy snapping away at your artfully poured latte atop a white marble table, while listening to live jazz on a busy afternoon.

Balzac's Coffee Roastery

55 Mill St, Toronto, ON M5A 3C4

Nestled in one of Toronto’s most photographed areas, the historic Distillery District, Balzac's is a multi-story café that is a must-visit when in the neighbourhood. The historic stone building, complete with exquisite chandeliers, will leave you speechless – and your Instagram followers wondering if you’ve taken a sudden trip to Europe.

If there’s one thing that Toronto bloggers are serious about, it’s their brunch. “Brunching” is a verb for this polished crew, and the criteria for the perfect brunch spot is unanimous: beautiful bright spaces, artistically plated food, and quirky vignettes that will brighten up any Instagram feed. Never mind the fact that the food must be delicious – these bloggers need fuel because those photos won’t take themselves!
Flowers make the home – isn’t that how the old saying goes? Nothing says I love you, I’m sorry, or makes a home feel like a home quite like the perfect floral arrangement. When your typical corner store flower bunch just won’t do, there are a variety of unique and skilled florists in Toronto to help you bring the outdoors in.
