Your favourite neighbourhood book nook may have moved to larger digs, but Tequila Bookworm remains one of Queen Street’s most relaxing places to curl up with a great read. Although the service may be on the slow side, and it may not grind the best espresso beans in the city, nothing beats the feeling of communal literary appreciation like the rickety chairs and wornout sofas.

For late-night study marathons, Tequila Bookworm lives up to its namesake by offering a bevy of alcoholic … er, study enhancers. Open late by Toronto standards (11 p.m. on weekdays), Tequila Bookworm is located at 512 Queen St. W.
