Where to get a turmeric latte in Toronto

Turmeric lattes, also known as golden milk, started becoming a trend in 2016, continued well into 2017, and now they are a regular item on the menu of many cafés in Toronto. Not only is it a healthy drink, it’s also very soothing. With a nutty base, some spicy and many unique variations, here’s where you’ll find this hot, or iced, drink in the 6.

1240B Yonge St, Toronto, ON M4T 1W5

This beautiful superfood snack café at Yonge and Summerhill is known for its rich turmeric latte. It’s made with turmeric, cinnamon, vanilla, raw honey and a pinch of black pepper mixed with in-house steamed nutmilk (blend of cashews, almonds and coconut). The famous $16 smoothie also has turmeric in it, and given the amount of nutritionally beneficial ingredients, it’s definitely worth the price!


1205 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6K 0B9

These guys are like the mixologists of tea. It’s not your average tea bar. They use no tea bags – think loose leaf teas mixed with spices and other ingredients. Like a cocktail without the alcohol to give you a hangover. They have two versions. One is called the Pure Gold, made with turmeric, honey, ginger, cinnamon and chai. The other is the Tainted Gold, a chocolate infused turmeric milk spiced with ginger and chai.


867 Dundas St W, Toronto, ON M6J 1V6

This fashion and art shop meets café offers a creamy delicious caffeinated turmeric latte. It’s made with turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, coconut oil, almond milk and espresso. You can always ask for it without the espresso if you’re trying to ditch the caffeine – it still tastes good without.

Greenhouse Juice Co

5 MacPherson Ave, Toronto, ON M5R 1W7

Known for its high quality cold-pressed juices and healthy lifestyle brand, Greenhouse Juice has a seasonal turmeric latte named the Gold Star Latte. It’s sweet and spicy. What’s in it? Turmeric, ginger, a pinch of freshly ground black pepper and the in-house almond milk (which is a sweet, nutty dream, unlike any other you’ve had – it’s made with almonds, dates, vanilla bean, Himalayan salt and filtered water). Tip: if it’s no longer on the menu, I hear Emma from the flagship location can whip one up just as good.

Thrive Organic Restaurant

This café is for the health-conscious, so it’s no surprise that it’s got turmeric latte on the menu. Try it hot or cold with your choice of rice, almond, 2 per cent, 10 per cent or coconut milk. Tip: add the one-ounce ginger and turmeric shot to your drink for an extra kick.

A popular spot for poke and smoothie bowls, Calii Love also has some interesting hot drinks. The golden milk latte is made with turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, a little bit of honey and almond milk.
