Toronto Indie coffee shop hop, anyone?

By Caitlyn Holroyd
High on the list of the reasons we love Toronto is its abundance of cool, independent coffee shops. We’ve made it our mission to try just about every one in the city and thankfully a new passport has made it that much easier and cheaper (we’d like to think they made it just for us)!

Behold, the Indie Coffee Passport! The concept? It’s simple. For just $20, you can indulge in one coffee or tea (up to a $5 value) at each one of the 24 indie coffee shops participating throughout the city between Sept. 1, 2010 and March 31, 2011 (that’s a $120 value if you’re calculating). The pass can be picked up at any of the participating coffee shops or online at www.indiecoffeepassport.com/buy.html, and goes up to $25 after Oct. 1. There’s really no better way to explore the city and enjoy one helluva caffeine high – GET ON THIS!
Participating coffee shops include:
Bisogno Espresso (61 Sherbourne Ave.)
Cafe 260 (260 Richmond St.)
Cafe Novo (1986 Bloor St. W.)
Crema Coffee (3079 Dundas St. W. & 53 Bloor St. E.)

Scroll down and see for yourself.The venture's designed to connect people to "Toronto's fantastic independent coffee culture," and for it, the founders approached every independent coffee shop they could think of south of Bloor.

This is such a great list, I'm always looking to break out of the "Second Cup/Starbucks" shell!
