25 Oct Rachel’s Coffee House
Looking forward to a busy day of meetings in midtown, I decided to stop in at Rachel’s Coffee on Yonge near Davisville for my morning Americano. Rachel’s Coffee House is an organic, fair trade, contemporary indie café that opened 5 years ago in this popular neighbourhood. Rachel’s has established a loyal following from its neighbourhood residents by offering great coffee, as well as a relaxing atmosphere. I used to live just south of this location in the Yonge and St. Clair neighbourhood, and I would often pop into Rachel’s on my walks up to Yonge and Eglinton. The café is not only well known for its espresso based drinks, but also for its smoothies and organic food choices that include several sandwiches and their well-known Rainbow Salad. As well, there is a good selection of made-in-house tasty treats that are baked on premises — I highly recommend the big chocolate chip cookie! And for those with certain dietary needs, they also carry some great gluten free selections.
Rachel’s is very well-staffed and is extremely service oriented in its approach. The staff are very friendly and focused on providing great service and friendly smiles. You will often see them bringing drinks and food to a table and engaging in friendly conversation with their customers. It is certainly refreshing to see the attention to detail that has gone into operating this establishment.
With the recent completion of several new condos in the area and others that are in the early development stage, just north and south of the café, Rachel’s will surely be a very popular local destination for a long time.
Be sure to check out Rachel’s if you are on Yonge Street in midtown Toronto – you won’t be disappointed.
