I’m back with another “Coffee and a Treat” post and this time around I’ll be featuring Black Goat Cafe. It’s a cute little place right on Lakeshore in Etobicoke, around a fifteen minute drive from the heart of downtown and right beside Humber College.
Despite it’s size, the decor in the coffee shop is so cozy and chic. Think dark wood, exposed brick, boho chic cushions and Pinterest worthy wall decor. They’ve also got a selection of books to read from and smooth running wifi. Every time I go there, the baristas are so friendly and nice. It really does make the experience that much better.
The cafe has a selection of coffee made from fair trade and organic beans. It’s very strong and bitter (just the way I like it), and their cookies are on a whole other level. Black Goat Cafe sells baked goods, all made in house, ranging from muffins ($2.00) to scones (app. $2.00) to of course, the infamous cookies (app. $1.50) and many more goods. My favourite is the Oreo cheesecake cookie.
They’ve got some amazing sandwiches ($5.00) that are also made in house, other than the buns, which come from a nearby Portuguese bakery. Everything is $6.00 or under, so no budgets will be broken while indulging in yummy goods.
As you can tell, I’m slightly obsessed with this place. Not only is the location convenient (I go to school right beside), but I’m also very picky with my coffee and need it to actually taste like coffee… sorry Tim Hortons. They are open 7:00am- 7:00pm everyday, except on Sundays which is 9:00am- 3:00pm. The hours are pretty limited if you work a regular nine to five day, but it’s so worth the drive and your free time if you ever decide to go.
Final rating is 9.8 / 10
