    I finally had a chance to check this place out. I've been hearding about it for a while. This is a new concept cafe (from Coke) located in trendy Yorkville Area on Bloor Street West. It is directly across the street from Williams-Sonoma, Roots and The Body Shop at Bloor and St. Thomas Street. The cafe is beautifully decorated with hardwood floors, fresh green/aqua walls, uber comfortable furniture and funky music. It has two levels, the second of which is very lounge style with huge windows looking onto Bloor Street. There are little nooks with couches and pillows or stand alone tables.

    I ordered the raspberry Roobois tea, which is a naturally sweet caffeine free tea. It's delicious! Tastes like juice. They have a variety of coffees and teas. I didn't order anything to eat. One thing I thought was funny is their ordering system. It's supposed to be multi-step ordering (you choose your drink, size and how you want it). I think this is silly marketing. Sorry people but how is that different than anything you're doing in Starbucks or elsewhere? The pains the staff go through to explain this process when you arrive is silly too. Great service, great concept, but that part is just unnecessary.

    Though Coke is behind this cafe, there is no evidence of that whatsoever (thankfully). It's just an uber cool spacious cafe with great ambiance in a trendy area. Oh - and there's internet access available. Sweet!
