Toronto is full of great cafes, but it’s safe to say that you won’t find another quite like this one. Toronto’s new Queen Garden Cafe is located inside a glasshouse, making it the first coffee bar of its kind in the city.

The coffee bar is located in the Queen Garden Centre, just east of Broadview, which is home to over 500 varieties of trees, shrubs, and perennials.

Not only can you do your garden shopping, planning, and designing here, but you can also stop in for a pick-me-up in the garden centre’s on-site cafe.

 The structure is made from transparent glass and is situated right in the middle of the garden.

Queen Garden Cafe serves up locally-made award-winning coffee from De Mello, as well as baked goods, various bites, and other beverages like hibiscus lemonade and elderberry iced tea.

You can enjoy your coffee break on the dog-friendly outdoor patio, with views of colourful murals, fresh florals, and twinkle lights.

The cafe hosted a cocktail party in the garden during Pride Month, and we can only hope for more festivities throughout the season.

Summer is the time to slow down and smell the flowers, and you can do just that without leaving the city at Queen Garden Cafe.
