Cafe, Contemporary, $$$
Owned by two coffee-loving artists, Hopper Coffee is a stone’s throw away from Kensington Market. The menu is simple but covers all of your caffeine needs, and baked goods are available from local Toronto bakeries. More of a grab-and-go coffee shop, seating is limited to side benches and high stools. Despite the minimalistic décor, there’s plenty of art to look at – created by the owners themselves, Jibola Fagbamiye and Martina Kusnir. Even their garbage cans are artsy, designed by Toronto graffiti artist Case.
