With all the superb java percolating in our city, it’s a shame that so many amongst the caffeinated class choose convenience over quality.

That’s where Leslieville residents have it over the rest. For the past four years, Queen East dwellers have flocked to the Dark Horse Espresso Bar to get their fix of the good stuff from the shop’s award-winning baristas.

Dark Horse serves up a different kind of frothy brew to a clientele that won’t stand for the sludge they brew in your office.

Westerners, don’t despair. There’s already a second location at 215 Spadina Ave. and a third spot opening this fall.
