As a fan of mochas, lattes, and various chocolate/coffee drinkables, I make it a point to sample as wide a variety as often as possible. For research purposes mostly. And, having done my due diligence over the past year, I offer up my Top 5 Toronto Mochas…
#5. Bar Buca
This place boasts a host of fancy lattes laced with everything from honey and ginger to dulce de leche and, well, chocolate. They also do a delicious Cafe Al Zabaglione for that taste of Venice.
The latest addition to the Queen Street West scene is the Toronto branch of this Montreal bakery. Enjoy your mocha with lunch – or, better, yet a tartelette tropezienne and/or a Paris-Brest.
#3. Oretta Cafe
Adjoining the Oretta Restaurant is a little cafe that offers up terrific Italian bites and, of course, a stellar mocha (aka The Cioccolacciono).
#2. Hot Black Coffee
One of the chocolatiest of mochas hails from this quaint little Queen Street coffee shop whose internet-free environment ensures conversation over solitary browsing.
#1. Soma Chocolate
This should come as no surprise. Toronto’s premiere chocolatier makes one of the city’s premiere mochas. If you’re feeling particularly indulgent, check out their decadent drinking chocolates.
I’m sure there are a lot of other great candidates out there. No doubt, in time, I’ll check them all out.
