Bulldog coffee shop is my favourite place for coffee in Toronto, bar none.
Located downtown at 89 Granby St., just south of Carlton and east of Church, its owner and latte artiste par excellence Stuart Ross has created a cozy yet chic little enclave where the ambience and superb coffee are key attractions.
It’s my place of choice to start the day and the perfect spot to meet a friend or business associate. In fact, everyone I’ve introduced to Bulldog has quickly become a regular. It’s got a New York feel – busy, welcoming and sophisticated, in a good way.
The coffee is just plain delicious – and I’m a harsh judge of this popular but often disappointing brew. My versions of choice are the cappuccino and macchiato, both of which come with pretty designs on the perfectly creamy, dense foam.
No pretension here and the prices are right – an average of $3 a pop.
Ross has won awards for his latte art expertise and his sidekick Drew is no slouch in this department either.
See you at Bulldog Coffee – and yes, there are folks who bring their dogs!
